Welcome return in the Sofrito Super Singles Series: a limited 3 track EP of raw percussion sounds from the Alma Negra crew, pitched in that vivid space between organic percussion and electronics, and inspired by the Carnival celebrations on the Cape Verdean island of Santiago. Think Konono No.1 dueling with Golden Teacher in the blistering Cape Verde sun, rather than the Glasgow rain and you’re half way. ‘Tapanka’ is Bleepbot’s pick; looped carnival field-noise soon melts into a thumping 4/4 groove, like being kidnapped by ESG and transported to some far-flung place on a wave of percussion. Mega.
