After the Volume 5 from last november, Guynamukat are back with a new 12 inch in their Afro Disco Boogie Edits series. As always, this record is a bargain for DJs: 4 tracks of rare heavy disco bizness aiming straight for the grooviests dancefloors for the price of a 12 inch! Side A starts with some killer Afro Boogie from 1982, followed by a slow burner of slapping boogie soul. Side B goes straight to the Tropical Headz' hearts, with a groovy piece of disco sunshine that should put the smile on many faces, and closes with a 1984 modern soul instrumental from Nigerian band Xtasy. Heavily recommended for the Disco DJs bags.

Tracklisting :
A1. Shake It Baby (Disco Boogie edit)
A2. Low Slung Disco (parts 1 & 2)
B1. The Carribean Disco Moment (Steel Drums Crackly Island Reggae Funk Edition)
B2. Let Your Body Go (Nigerian Afro Boogie edit)

Press Release :
Volume six of the vinyl-only GUYNAMUKAT Afro-disco boogie edits series arrives with four deliciously trimmed and tucked tweaks. The A-Side kicks off with an obscure slab of female vocal boogie from the golden year of 82; "Shake It Baby" has a throbbing wobbly disco bass with an unforgettable chorus. Up next, "Low Slung Disco" does exactly what it says on the tin, gently easing in with some slap bass boogie before some glorious Vince Montana-esque strings kick in to hypnotic effect. On to the flip you'll find some reggaefied sun-kissed disco with some obligatory steel drums for a dramatic finish. The 12" ends with a Nigerian afro boogie obscurity which fetches silly money on Discogs. GUYNAMUKAT make one single track from the two different versions of the track, tightening up the groove accordingly and making good use of those synths and the funkier elements of the track. DJ Support so far comes from Mr Scruff, Faze Action, Pat Les Stache, Isoul8, LTJ Experience, Eddie c and more!
