To kick off the spring/summer vibes in true Cali fashion, 6blocc drops “Cali Jungle 4”. This album is pretty much for all listeners. When I got this, already knowing that I am in store for some heavy hitting jungle sounds, I was taken back by the remixes he chose for this album, Bringing me back to the early days of exploring music with friends, hearing sounds as a kid or teenager for the first time I really could relate to. All I can really say is… this album is put together with class, keeping the integrity of the classic R&B/Soul tunes and original styles of jungle production, all while kicking up the heat on the danceability scale. This is backyard hanging out with your family BBQ music! Although, the tunes on this one are pretty much guaranteed to get the heads moving at the club. I don’t even think you have to like or listen to D&B or Jungle to get into this. Cali Jungle 4 and the rest of the Cali Jungle series is pretty much a perfect representation of the OG california jungle music. buy it and listen to it LOUD!
