About this item
French disco hero Marc Cerrone celebrated 40 years of mirror ball majesty in 2016 with the release of the "Afro" EP on Because. Now the legendary producer, arranger and musician returns with the second chapter in his "Afro" series, serving up two more brand new compositions full of grooves and good times.
“African Voodoo” and “Papa Oye” are his two new songs paying a passionate homage to Africa and its syncopated, spontaneous and genuine rhythms. The shuffling rhythms of "Papa Oye" propel the full bodied bassline, wah guitar and female vocals straight into the peak time, while the poly rhythmic pulse of "African Voodoo" sends those space aged synths, funk organs and slick bass into outer space - properly cosmic!
Patrick says: Though he's now in the 42nd year of his recording career, Cerrone's appetite for dancefloor destruction remains utterly insatiable, and this brand new 10" cuts many a rug in classic Afro-disco style. This is ace!
