Zulu brings the slow burning dancefloor energy of 1980s South Africa into sharp focus. Comprised of Sello Mmutung and Keith Hutchinson, the original six track album Zulu Disco was laid down in Johannesburg circa 1983. Quite likely the first pressing to vinyl, ‘Zulu’ carries the mystical original recording mastered from its cassette tape predecessor. Each track shows the fever for American funk and disco that was sweeping through South Africa at the time, but with unmistakeable township elements, infectious grooves, simple melodies and a deep synth workout. Essential.
