London-based modern soul collective Jungle closed off their United States tour in Los Angeles — and it was fire.

The seven-piece music collective played to a sold-out house of soul lovers at the El Rey Theatre on Thursday night. Their infectious live sound, infused with electronic funk and rhythmic percussions showed they know how to party.

Electronic duo Makeness opened up the show before Jungle took the stage. Their retro electronic synths, drumbeats and keys warmed the crowd up well; but the moment Jungle hit the stage, their big sound, sing-along verses and dance worthy songs set the whole crowd into motion.

So you come a long way
But you’ll never have me
Never have things for a normal life
It’s time, too busy earnin’
You can’t get enough

— “Busy Earnin'” by JUNGLE

Jungle’s self-titled debut album was released in 2014 with lead single “Busy Earnin'” topping charts in the UK and France. Keep up with Jungle at junglejunglejungle.com.
