The Diasonics – Sirocco

Moscow, Russia’s The Diasonics have really been going in heavy these last few months with releases and from the looks of things, they’re just getting started. Their last double-sider bring of what they describe as “hussar funk” – a style that seamlessly blends infectious deep funk instrumentals, East European flavours and psychedelic echoings. On this 7inch, their mystique vibe is complemented by a Koto – a japanese zither – that adds a samourai flic twist to the sovietsploitation groove of the band. File under “outernational” or “unusual funk”.

Highly Recommended
