Two of the biggest Jungle artists to have ever walked have linked up for a massive charity single, Celebration Of Life.
The single was inspired by a young boy named Jaden who has an incurable brain disease and is being looked after by Demelza, the hospice to which all proceeds will go. Many will know the love runs through the heart of Jungle music and to see these two artists giving back is truly wonderful.
From headlining the Jazz Stage at Glastonbury in front of 20,000 with the Freestylers with whom he also won Muzik Mag’s Best Band award, touring across America with Lenny Kravitz, collecting a platinum disc for Ruffneck, breaking the Top 40 with Mo Fire, to hitting the No.1 spot on Germany’s Urban Chart with Azad and Godzilla and also topping the iTunes chart in Japan with Spankers. Navigator is not a stranger to success and he continues his fine form alongside General Levy.
Levy came up through the world of sound systems and a plethora of urban music styles in his box, it was his song Incredible, a world success achieving top ten status in the national mainstream charts, is synchronized in the movies “Ali G Indahouse” and “Seuls Two”.
As stated on their Youtube channel: “The reason for their unification is to support Demelza, a hospice which provides support and respite for the parents and families of terminally ill children with special needs. The project is inspired by a little boy called Jaden who is suffering with an incurable brain disease. Despite his prognosis, he celebrated his 11th birthday in August, against all his doctor’s expectations, which has further inspired the project to achieve even greater exposure for the cause.”
To support the launch of the single, the artists will be headlining Jungle Fever at Ministry of Sound in London on December 22nd, where they will also be performing a second track in support of the project, “Think Positive” (produced by FLeCK, and also featuring the talents of Sweetie Irie, Ragga Twins, Joseph Lalibela & Johnny Dolla).
