Santi - Mandy & The Jungle

I've been listening to 'Freaky' non-stop for a good few months now and honestly that track and his futures on Juls' projects and songs sold me so I took my time listening to and reviewing this one. Mainly because I wanted to love it so much, I made sure I listened to it a good amount so I was giving an honest review -and not just the review I wanted to give.


I am so in love with this project and the fact that it’s consistent with his sound and yet still so many experimental elements thrown in, from ‘Maria’ a collab with Goldlink that sounds more true to Goldlink's signature fast-paced, uptempo style. Also, the undeniable trap influence on ‘Demon Hearts’ with DRAM and throughout the project, to the track ‘Diamonds’ which reminds me of something that could have been on Travis Scott’s Astroworld.

I've been listening to 'Freaky' non-stop for a good few months now and honestly that track and his futures on Juls' projects and songs sold me on this guy.


He’s just signed to LVRN (Love Renaissance) based in Atlanta and home to ATL’s finest, 6LACK and Summer Walker as well as collaborator DRAM, amongst others which is perhaps indicative of how big this progressive alte cruise sound/movement is about to be.


My favourite tracks: Demon Hearts, Monte Claire, Sparky, RX-64 (The Jungle), DSM, Freaky, Morocco, Rapid Fire, Raw Dinner, Maria.


I’m also happy with the features from frequent collaborators such as Tomi Agape, Nonso Amadi, Tay Iwar and Amaarae – all of who are also pushing this new afro movement to the forefront.
