Image: 1586218 Musical collisions in the Atlantic! Sofrito kicks off the new Island Series with a 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 Decal´e.

Os Kings complete the EP with an ode to struggling youth, anchored by sweet guitars and a slick bassline. Available from 20.12.2013
