Number four in the highly acclaimed Supafrico series, this Afro-funk treat will not disappoint. A decidedly upbeat compilation, it kicks off with the dope 1980 afro-style disco corker, ‘Musicland’ from NYC-based one-hit-wonders Clymax. An energetic boogie drum beat, soaring synths and an incessantly funky bassline makes this an A-class lesson in Afro-hedonism. Next up ‘I Feel Funky’ from Harry Mosco has you hooked from the first deeply groovy bass lick. Featuring a captivatingly heady synth solo, this track, taken from the 1978 ‘Country Boy (Mr. Funkees)’ LP, is a dancefloor must-have. Flip over for the flute driven afro-disco belter, Tirogo’s ‘Dancing Machine’. Joyous horns intersperse the chugging beats whilst the hot Afro vocals pay homage to the Jackson 5 classic of the same name. Finally, Bebe Manga’s ‘Lokognolo’ gives you layer upon layer of slick slap guitar, big-ass phat basslines and acid-tinged synths with Bebe smothering the whole lot in a creamy vocal topping. An absolute killer Afro EP that will burn up your record bag and the dancefloor alike.
