"Sideshow is the alter ego of Fink -- the well-respected work-o-holic producer, musician, remixer and live performer on Ninja Tune. Sideshow's sound was born of a need to play pure dance music, initially created as the antithesis of the turntablist heavy Ninja culture, but drawing on the experience. For the original of 'African Cheri' we find ourselves asking the question 'is it disco, is it dub, is it techno, or all of the above?' Who cares when Sideshow's at the controls, as the groove is so tight. Starting out all straight and robotic until the disco loops and percussive samples are cut into the mix. The live bass is accompanied by Sideshow's typical dub flashes before things are taken to the next level with a squelchy electronic variation of the bass line that is, well, quite simply... filthy. Stefan Goldmann uses the guitars from Sideshow's original to set the musical tone before building a wonderfully tripped out melody. Layers of found sound, clicks and whirrs are delicately woven around Stefan's resonant drums and lead melody, resulting in a delicate harmony that underpins the mix."
