Mukat Edits Vol.4 - Tropical Funk 45 (Limited edition 45)

Mukat Edits Vol 4 Tropical Funk 45

This is the fourth in the series of 'Mukat Edits' releases after 'Afro Disco Boogie Edits Vol.1', described as pure tropical dancefloor gold in the november 2012 playlist; 'Afro Disco Boogie Edits Vol.2', featuring irresistible bouncing boogie, serious digging and the electro-funk side of disco, as seen in the april 2013 playlist; and 'Afro Disco Boogie Edits Vol.3', floorfiller material for sure as described in september 2013 playlist. This time it's not a 12 inch but a 7 inch, limited to just 350 copies, hand numbered & hand stamped… and it's already been released for a month so you gotta act fast if you want to grab one of those beauties! A-side is an edit of the people's Calypsonian Brother Valentino and his 1980 Carribbean afro-disco bomb 'Ah Wo (Brand New Revolution)', focusing on the instrumental parts of the original, the groovy breaks and solos, leaving the crusty cheese of the original vocals on the side, making it an even more potent dancefloor weapon. B-side is some cinematic, breaks-heavy, tropical thriller funk that I can't pinpoint but which doesn't make this 7 inch less recommended!

Juno Review :
It's another ridiculously collectable addition to the Mukat series. Hand numbered of just 350 copies & hand stamped these cats dig deep again & this needs your attention before it sells out. "Tropical Calypso" is a sunkissed funk groove showdown with shimmers of highlife, woozy horns and delicate pianos while the latin floor filler "The Sting Of Skorpion" rides roughshod on an instantly distinctive horn hook and a mesmerising drum work out. Both are, as you'd expect, stunning. As charted /played by Eddie C, Suonho, Red Greg, Adesse Versions, Lefto, Diesler, Dom Servini, Ashley Beedle, Nicola Conte and more !
