Records which date from a time before the internet don’t tend to spawn viral hits. This fact makes the recent resurgence of interest in Rupa Biswas’ 1982 LP Disco Jazz all the more astonishing. Whether by a quirk of an algorithm, furious link-sharing or some other means, Disco Jazz’s penultimate track ‘Aaj Shanibar’ has taken the net by storm of late - one particular YouTube upload has well over a million hits at the time of writing. While the song’s newfound fame may or may not be a happy accident, Disco Jazz has the tunes to make good on the promise, as this Numero Group reissue proves. Funnily enough these tunes barely count as disco, and are pretty much nowhere near jazz. Indeed, their fusion of Bollywood song, Latin rhythms, funk-rock guitars and vaguely Balearic textures is delightfully unique.
