About this item

Kampana follow up their debut release with more heat from Aroop Roy. KMPN001 was a global hit across the house, disco and tropical scene, with support from heavyweights such as Francois K, Soul Clap and Gilles Peterson. Here we get another three tracks off his fully loaded hard drive. "You Say" is a funk-fuelled number with sing-a-long retro vocals and wicky guitar licks, driven by a warm disco groove and 80s arp-synth. The feel-good vibes gradually build into an anthemic floor-filling climax which would find favour with Neil Diablo and Will Tramp! in equal measure. "Taj Mahal" reworks a Brazilian classic into a full on house workout, reminiscent of Roy's popular series on Gamm. Finally, "Mapora" is an original number that will blend well into both deep house and afro-centric sets. The track builds nicely with filtered samples and syncopated vocals, coming in with an infectious highlife guitar line and late night synth stabs, to get mind and body moving in tandem. Lovely stuff.
