STAFF COMMENTSPatrick says: If you're looking for a psychedelic stormer which sounds a bit like a Nigerian cover of "House Of The Rising Sun" but with squirmy Moogs and Donna Summer style vocals - then you're in luck. "Jungle Magic" is a gorgeous LP of dreamy African textures led off by that massive title track!
STAFF COMMENTSPatrick says: I'd like to share a dream with you. I'm dressed like Dennis Hopper in Apocalypse Now and going back to back with Baldelli at Cosmic in 1982. I'm playing "Love Or Money" at -8 and the resultant dancefloor explosion solves all future energy crises and saves the human race. Boss!
Second hand piss-takery aside, this late 70s slice of groove heavy Afro-funk regularly changes hands for a monkey, so your bank manager should be thanking those fine folk in Austria. Drawing on reggae, disco and funk, Mr Pino gets up, down and all the way around across six party starting, largely instrumental offerings. Any record which starts with a buoyant reggae-disco ode to Barry's favourite plant life ("Ganja") is gonna be dope (ahem!), but when we're then taken through a bordering on ludicrous Afro-funk rendition of Beethoven's 5th, you know we're in safely wasted hands. You could easily assume this discoid arrangement would be whack, but you'd be better served throwing some shapes to the buzzing Moogs, chiming keys and wild wah guitar which make this beast purr. Things straighten out for the full steam ahead funk of title track "Boogie Fever" before "Dance For Love" opens the flip with a weirdo reggae lilt. If you're looking for the best party of your life condensed into five and a half minutes, then you should probably cast an ear over "African Hustle", crack your knuckles and dive into air piano ecstasy. After that Moog-led madness, there's just enough time to spark one up to the Afrobeat-meets-reggae of "Shake Shake Shake" before the run out groove reminds you it's time to pick the kids up from school. Killer!
STAFF COMMENTSPatrick says: Switching between lilting cannabinoid anthems and Moog topped funk bombs, Mr Pino's "Boogie Fever" is as dope as they come!
From the Cannabinoid anthem which opens the set, through the Moog funk mayhem of the title track and "African Hustle", to the Caribbean styled closer, this
“The Transformed Man” features poetry and popular songs including the legendary tracks "Theme From Cyrano/Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Spleen/Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds" spoken in Mr. Shatner’s inimitable vocal style. This cult classic is now reissued in a limited edition of 1,000 red vinyl copies from DBK Works.

STAFF COMMENTSPatrick says: Proper Afro-funk badness on this once in a lifetime reissue from PMG. Aleke Kanonu goes in deep across four deep and diverse shoulder rolling cuts reminding us exactly why this is a holy grail!

STAFF COMMENTSPatrick says: Fasaan favourite Prins Emanuel drops a conceptual double pack on Music For Dreams, fusing dub, afro, new age and boogie into a groove heavy masterpiece perfect for nights on the tiles or days on the sofa. If you dug on Studio's "West Coast", then you'll be all over this!
