"Holy Jungle" is spacious and ominous, percussive hippie disco as imaginary soundtrack, recalling not only Jodorowsky but the sublime portent of Werner Herzog's Aguirre: The Wrath of God. It's a terrific release for Golf Channel, but ultimately, the song's cinematic intensity is as much a limitation as it is a selling-point: it's gone far enough in the direction of evocative atmosphere that it almost feels incomplete without a compelling visual complement. While the Jodorowsky samples are highly effective, they're also a misdirection away from the track's stripped skeletal frame, which occasionally seems to be asking for further hypnotic decoration—somebody call the good Dr. Paterson. As a result, Mark E's reworking is a scene-stealer, and aptly titled "Pressure Dub": it builds its steam slowly and steadily, sweeping the wobble and lurch of the original into a sweaty piston churn.
"Pissed and Passed Out" is literally the flip side: the realm of wild Gnostic adventure is left behind for more urban concerns. Rhythmic analog swish and organic tribal bonk keep the trance-out going, but instead of communion with semi-divine entities, it's you sauced and face-down on your friend's couch. While the density of the tribal percussion threatens to take things into trip-hop territory (an occupational hazard for many downtempo productions), some hairy rock kit fills and lead synth fire surface to pull the track back from the Euro-lounge abyss.
