When they say the goods just keep coming, Mukatsuku Records definitely lives up to that slogan when curating a nice selection of both sought after and under the radar gems in their series of releases. Over the years their “Afro Funk & Disco Gems” series has made it’s way to our crates and blessed plenty of dance floors across the globe and with their 10th edition, the come just as strong as they ever have.
The A-side you’ll find the synth-laden, boogie-era sunshine of “Everybody Dance”, one of the undisputed highlights of Peter Yamson’s in-demand (and notably hard to find) “Son Of Africa” LP. With wonderful vocals, glistening guitars, lolloping drum machine beats and some stellar synth work, the track ticks all the right boxes. Over on the flip there’s a chance to own Cameroon legend Tala Andre Marie’s 1981 classic “Get Up Tchamassi”, whose snaking sax lines, elastic slap bass and dreamy chords are nothing less than sensational.
