africa-colour

When the underground musicians and composers of the late 70's began to plunder modern afrikan music, they put a rock gloss on it and mixed it for their own dance floors (Eno, Byrne, Fripp, and Talking Heads). Now the dynamics of modern day electronic engineering have been used to blow up the beats on this mesmerising afro-funk disc that offers me little but the music to comment upon. Whether there are studio trick involved, it's not clear, but the live-in-the-studio feel is definitely Ninja Tunes' style twiddlin' and the result is something very familiar, but from far away. Excellent.
