ANOTHER CASE OF AFRO GOES UNKNOWN
Deep in the jungles of Germany, this tune was conceived in a haze of "world music" and the electronic cool of the 1980s club scene. Hence the abundance of loose drum work over a heavy arpeggio bassline and some well calculated guitar riffs.
This bastard child has been called Afro, Cosmic & Balearic by compilations claiming it as their own all through the 90s, for instance the Electric Funky Afro Sound bootleg series which featured the nice dub mix on their Volume 2 12", now as hard to find as the original pressings of this tune.
