2016 repress. "New limited edition series from Sofrito: Sofrito Super Singles, which will bring to light the finest reissues of rare and forgotten tropical dancefloor sounds. The debut release celebrates the Afro-disco and boogie scene of South Africa -- where Salsoul meets Soweto. Comes housed in a new look Sofrito house sleeve. The three track EP features Teaspoon & The Waves -- led by veteran alto player Teaspoon Ndelu. They released one album in 1980, covering a mix of disco and funk sounds for the SA dancefloors. 'Oh yeh Soweto' is a cheeky version of Lamont Dozier's 'Going Back To My Roots' -- changing the lyrics and toughening up the beats, but with the same killer riffs. 'Saturday Night Special' is from the same LP, a spaced out Afro disco groove with excellent percussion and psychedelic synths, re-edited by the Sofrito team. The B side features a track by the Nzimande Allstars -- another mysterious group of session musicians. The drawn out groove of 'Highway Sporo Disco' fuses a heavy disco backing with jive guitar and stellar horns and organ for a unique taste of the underground sound of the Cape. Coming up soon on Sofrito Super Singles will be a slice of Trinidad Soca Disco and some raw Haitian sounds."
