Alma Negra, four guys with roots in Portugal, Cabo Verde, Italy, and Spain, hailing from Switzerland, present an African influenced EP. "Afrorleans" is a track with Fela's footprint all over it -- a lovely Rhodes jam over a classic Afrobeat, subtly supported by sparse electronic percussion. "Luanda Dub" is a modern reinterpretation of the traditional lamento style from Luanda -- it's a gloomy techno workout with killer bottom end, trippy guitars, spacey vocals, and tribal percussion. "Endless Summer" leans heavy on Rhodes keys, filtered wah-wahs, and African chants. Soulphiction's adds some serious grunts with percussion and a killer bassline.
