Jungle Breathes Some Funk Into Mapei's Smash "Don't Wait"
Mapei dropped her debut album Hey Hey roughly this time last year, establishing her as a formidable new voice in the ever-broadening horizons of the left-field. That album graced us with the delicate pop styles of the lead-off single “Don’t Wait,” which almost immediately received a helping hand from Chance The Rapper on the song’s first reworked effort. But today, the freshly-unveiled lo-fi r&b duo Jungle has tried their own hand in revamping that blissful debut, calling on warbled guitar struts and a mid-tempo groove to fix this thing with a very danceable, almost tribally funked-out vibe, reminiscent of Jai Paul’s “Str8 Outta Mumbai.” The remix is set to be included as a bonus track on a forthcoming deluxe edition of Mapei’s debut album, which will be arriving October 16th. Watch the video for Jungle’s remix of “Don’t Wait” below and if you’re looking for something truly new from Mapei, jump back and peep the cinematic clip for her latest single “Orphan.”
