Une exclusivité Cosmic Groove!
Our coup de coeur of the month. Finally available the ultimate 12” of French Afrobeat combo Fanga.
3 pure Afro funk cuts in the footsteps of the initiator Fela. The surprise comes with the jazzy touch of the organ and the clever dose of strange sounds of the keys that spread and appear here and there in the cuts.
The record opens with “Crache La Douleur” (11’13”), a dancefloor oriented tune with an uncut groove on rhythms (note a fabulous featuring of Master Tony Allen on drums), splendid Afrocentric horns and cool vocals.
This tune offers 2 fantastic drum breaks, one in a pure funky style with drums & voice and all the musicians entering the groove again and the second with eerie & weird sounds from the keys that emphasize the drum beat fever of Tony.
Amazing! On the flip side, “Bolli (highabstraktjujumix)” (8’32”) and “Kelen” (4’20”) showcase that the band is in a splendid mood giving Afrobeat a new dimension. An astral travelling from Lagos to France! Don't miss it !
