Geechie Goomie - R'n'B Gone Caribbean

    50's Rhythm & Blues with an eye on Caribbean/Latin sound. Here is a collection of fine and long forgotten examples, but without the Pig Latin that Louis Jordan or Slim Gaillard were so famous for. We dug deep in the vaults, recorded from very good 78s or old shiny vinyl, that was as closest as possible to the original quality. - Hit dat Jive and dig it! 

    FORMAT INFORMATION

    10" LP Info: Limited edition of 500 copies.

    When you hear the crisp robo-electro of "Don't Stop The Rock" it immediately transports you back to the mid-eighties when these sounds were first emerging and blowing up the streets. A real favourite of cult Detroit DJ and original light flasher The Electrifying Mojo, it will still have you doing back flips to this day with its jerking beats and serrated synth lines all looking to the future. On the flip, the urgent space crusade that is "It's Automatic" surges with galactic chords with robotic vocals that bring a brilliant retrofuture feeling. This is an essential little 7" that really packs a punch.
