Image: 1588506 Second in a new series of vinyl-only loud-pressed double packs documenting Italy's legendary Afro Funky / Cosmic scene packed with an eclectic selection of obscurities that filled the floor at fabled clubs like Cosmic, Typhoon and Baia Degli Angeli. First to drop is the ‘Mi Yo’, a super-rare slice of pounding tribal drum-driven afro funk, originally released in 1984 and presented here in a DJ-friendly extended edit, then Sharon Bailey’s amazing ‘Cosmic Dust’, an in-demand slo-mo Salsoul oddity from 1981 still receiving heavy rotation from DJs such as Harvey and the Idjut Boys. Flip over for ‘Time Actor’, a nine-minute electronic dance epic from Richard Wahnfried, an alias of German experimentalist Klaus Schulze, followed by the Baldelli-favoured 7” version of the Belle Stars’ percussive pop gem from 1982 ‘Iko Iko’. The second disc keeps the pressure up with the heavy mid-tempo Afro-electro vibe of KSB’s Misaluba plus chugging funk workout ‘The Pressure’ from South London outfit 400 Blows and Ryuchi Sakamoto’s stunning analogue synth dreamscape ‘Plastic Bamboo’. Finally Hamilton Bohannon closes the show with ‘Truck Stop’, his guitar and harmonica driven funk opus from 1974. Essential collection of Afro Cosmic classics - don’t miss!
