Image: 1603981 Alma Negra is a Swiss collective that consists of four musically driven friends, the Figuiera Brothers Dersu & Diego whose roots are established firmly in their Cape Verdian heritage, Dario with his half and half Portuguese/Italian mix and finally Mario with Spanish roots.

They are all passionate diggers who love playing music from all over the world, something that's evident in their productions as well. Encompassing Jazz, African and Latin sounds to Soul, Funk, Disco, House and even Techno. As far as inspiration goes they mention Donald Byrd, Fela Kuti and Theo Parrish. Their creative output has led them to release on such fine labels as Sofrito, Highlife and most recently Basic Fingers.

Fans of Alma Negra includes Gilles Peterson, Ben UFO, Axel Boman, Detroit Swindle, Africaine 808 and Tim Sweeney. Now they are back with Digger's Workout, a fresh and exciting instalment in the Basic Fingers catalogue - divided into three seperate 12's with remixes from Esa & Santuri, Osunlade aka Yoruba Soul, Rainer Trueby & Corrado Bucci present TRUCCY.

Digger's Workouts, Part 1 contains three original cuts and one remix from Esa & Santuri with spectacular basswork worthy of Funkadelic. If you're looking for rattling percussions, irresistible basslines, melodic synths and vocal chants that interweave and do a delicious dance with each other - look no further.

This first Part of the series is a sure-fire way to send anyone into a near shamanic state.
