More Tropica heat from the Sofrito camp, as usual super limited and super essential!

Benis Cletin’s dog-rare 1979 effort “Jungle Magic” lays a warped synth over a lethal bassline and a slow afro disco groove, topping the whole thing off with a unique homage to Donna Summer.

Originally released on Afrodisia records in 1979, the result sounds like the the confused love-child of a time-travelling Derrick May and a Nigerian disco queen – timeless eccentricity that bridges the gap between Lagos and Detroit “Money Makes Man Mad” is an uptempo slice of percussive Afro disco. Bubbling bassline and skittering drums lock down the groove for a serious Tropical dancefloor excursion….
