SOFRITO

The Sofrito crew return with four more tropical bangers to heat up the dancefloor! For the label's fifth outing they join forces with Joining forces with the talented Tropical Treats outfit from Sweden, who you'll remember from the ace "Afrikan Rhythms" 12″ on GAMM in 2009. The "Tropical Soundclash EP" covers raw Afro-funk, heavy cumbia, Caribbean disco and hot carnival rhythms, perfect for your Tropical Discotheque! On side A "Rift Valley Groove" is a wicked piece of Afro-funk, while "Cumbia Colombiana" features a heavy percussive rhythm and blasting horns. Side B opens with the speedy carnival drumming and call-and-response vocal of "Ca Ca Yé" - perfect for a mood change on the dancefloor - with "Tabou For The People" bringing up the rear in Afro-disco style, all played live.




TRACK LISTING

A Side:
Rift Valley Groove (Tropical Treats Edit)
Cumbia Colombiana (Tropical Treats Edit)

B Side:
Ca Ca Yé (Frankie Francis Edit)
Tabou For The People (Sofrito Edit Feat. L. Barrabas)

A fresh installment in the Sofrito Super Singles Series: a limited three track EP of raw percussion sounds from the Alma Negra crew, at the crossroads between organic percussion and electronics, and inspired by the Carnival celebrations on the Cape Verdean island of Santiago.

On the A-side, “Mageko” pulls no punches - a low-slung bassline sitting behind an ever-evolving sea of percussion and chants, sounding like a long-lost afro-disco dub.

Ramping up the energy on the B-side, “Tabanka (Version)” is a chopped re-visioning of the Carnival rhythms of the Cape Verdean island of Santiago. Anchored around a riff played on a conch shell, it brings organic and electronic elements together for a hypnotic Road March workout. The majestic “Ramboia” finishes things off - a rolling, off-kilter afro-house groove slowly enveloped by strings and a blissed-out bassline.
