2013 release. "Sofrito kicks off the new Island series with a celebration of the vital dancefloor sounds of Cape Verde - a mixture of local Funana rhythms, Batuque percussion and psychedelic disco synths. Originally released in the early '80s, Dionisio Maio's anthemic 'Corpim Sabe' is stretched into a 12" mix by the Alma Negra collective - bringing the thumping bassline to the fore and tweaking the piano-led groove into a slice of cosmic island perfection. On the flip the dynamic Hide & Smile duo splice an early track from trailblazing group Bulimundo into a percussive workout - a sure fire winner that bridges the gap between traditional styles and the sounds of Kuduro and Coupe Decaĺe. Os Kings complete the EP with an ode to struggling youth, anchored by sweet guitars and a slick bassline."
