(CD) Mind Records & Service Mind005, 2006-11-06

Review :
Forward thinking never ends with french cult producer Doctor L...
After an astonishing series of 4 new INCREDIBLE albums in less than 2 years on his new label Mind (check djouls.com), and a collectable series of limited 7 and 12 inches concluding with an amazing cover of Sly Stone's "Family Affair", with brooklyn n°1 afrobeateers Antibalas (!), the Doctor is back with a collection of goodies from various projects once again aggregated into "Forgotten Tracks From Da Hard Drive", a full-flowing concept-album of electronic acid grooves, slams and vibes. Extracted from this new album [exclusively for ParisDJs.com web galaxy!!] is "Kind Of Dry", featuring Spontane's MC Jester, a blast of punk slam soaked in pure Doctor L electronic-acid-orgasonics. The New Thing happens HERE! Djouls
