Meistro, Deep Sang and DJ Stylus make up the Sol Power All-Stars, a DJ/production collective from Washington DC dedicated to the many styles of African dance music. Here, they make their debut on GAMM with an excellent collection of sneaky afro-centric re-rubs. "Catch Monkey", the lead cut, offers a punchy, floor-friendly take on an Afrobeat classic. There's also a thrillingly dubbed-out, dancefloor friendly take (The "2AM Dub") that's almost an improvement on the excellent vocal original. "Let Yourself Go", meanwhile, expertly teases out a formidably percussive groove from a 1980s Afro-funk jam - all rousing horns and fluid synths. Closer "Taxi Driver", meanwhile, is a joyously celebratory juju jam. Quality stuff.
