No.41 x 2010
To tell you the truth, I really don't know who Mystic is. I was searching for this particul song and found a random and seemingly anonymous download link of this pretty awesome edit. And since I can't find any other information about this mystery editor I guess he really lives up to his (or her?) name.
The original is an oriental flavoured disco boogie cut from 1978 by the same producer that would later go on to cut some serious latino cheese with Kaoma. But here, Jean-Claude Bonaventure really nails the groove with that sitar. The Panama project (which also included prolific drummer Serge Haouzi who worked on all the Martin Circus albums as well as the Zebra record together with Bonaventure) later went on to record a very tribal percussion trip of that Doobie Brothers song.
