Press Release :
Remixes from Lou Blackburn's classic Mombasa album of the 70s -- all of them respectfully funky towards the originals! Things here never get too abstract or too contemporary to lose the spirit of the classics -- and although some of the tracks are heavily remixed, they're still filled with plenty of elements of the original songs -- especially the basslines, horns, and percussion. Titles include "Kenia (Curv's mainland edit)", "Shango (Palmreaders re-lecture)", "Massai (Dr Rubberfunk re-splice", "Holz (Bird re-whistle)", and "Massai (Matt Flores refix with MC Glittershine)".
