We love these crazy stories of “unknown” bands that no ones ever heard of coming together to create music or the long lost soundtrack to some exploitation movie that never made it’s way to the big screen. It always sets the stage for you to do a bit of research to figure out who these mysterious players are or in most cases, you just sit back and enjoy the music. The latest slice of 45 to release via the Mocambo label comes from the little known about ensemble, Sun Atlas.
“It’s not certain whether you’d find them in Los Angeles, New York, Addis Ababa, Marrakesh or in outer space. Maybe non, maybe all of the above. Their only proof of existance is banned on this 45. Their razor-sharp mixture of afrobeat, ethiojazz, surf, cinematic soul, crime jazz & funk/hiphop breaks speaks for itself.” – Mocambo Records
In the meantime take a listen for yourself.
