About this item
Norway's Lyskestrekk arrived on the scene last year with a killer Afrobeat LP from the Flammer Dance Band (If you didn't grab a copy, you need to - future classic alert), and now they're back with newcomers Leoparden. In time honoured fashion, the crew debut with a 7", in this instance packed to bursting with the soulful and dubby funk cut "Boliglan" and the funky moog cut "Rist Skjelettet".
If you dig on the Mauskovich dance band or the dance floor branch of the Bongo Joe output, I imagine the loose funk, dubby sound design and humid tones of "Boliglan" will be making all the right noises for you. I'd suggest it's a secret weapon for anyone of a Balearic bent too...
On the flipside, "Rist Skjelettet" sounds like J Dilla, Flying Lotus, Dick Hyman, Dr John and Wolf Muller recreating Basement Jaxx's "Red Alert" while submerged in a psycho-active alien swamp. It's a vibe folks!
Patrick says: Get a load of this Scandinavian slammer! Somewhere between reggae, funk and world music swelter, this 7" double header (inc. total B-side banger) ticks the same Balearic boxes as Mauskovich Dance Band and Bruxas. Humid freak funk!
