La Jungla by Ralphi Rosario ft. Julissa Veloz is everything that you would expect from someone like Ralphi Rosario (and that is the ultimate compliment!). It is a well thought out, flawlessly mixed journey of a great dance track. In my opinion, a great progressive, house, dance song should keep you grooving and moving the whole way through – not thinking, scheming or fantasizing about rubbish, like a lot of them seem to be doing these days.
The minute a dance track shifts the emphasis from your feet, it is no longer doing what it is ultimately intended to do- make you DANCE! If I wanted to mentally masturbate myself with music, I would listen to some classical releases!
Ralphi Rosario has a long standing experience in the business of dance music, and doesn’t waste time in trying to aimlessly impress the public of his compositional or mixing skills. He gets straight into the job of making you dance and that alone is enough to convince you of his technical merits. La Jungla has all the key essentials of modern-day electronic dance music – quick breakdowns, crisp buildups and a four-to-the-rhythm to move the room, not to mention an insistent vocal interlude and other sonic synth delicacies meant to mesmerize your senses.
La Jungla by Ralphi Rosario ft. Julissa Veloz is simply a track you put on, turn up and let play, to get any party started or club floor fired-up. The track is a buoyant journey of sun-drenched sounds ready to give you a hypnotic head-rush of musical groove!
