Les Ya Toupas Du Zaire

   
Les Ya Toupas Du Zaire - "Je Ne Bois Pas Beaucoup" - (8:57) 123 BPM
   
Lord Shorty - "Sweet Music" (Sofrito Edit) - (4:05) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Strut present this excellent addendum to Sofrito's killer compilation of the afro, Caribbean and Latin music you can hear if you've ever ventured down to one of their warehouse parties. This release has one of the highlights from that compilation in African disco heat of "Je Ne Bois Pas Beaucoup" from 70's Zairian troupe Les Ya Toupas Du Zaire. Accompanying that is an exclusive edit from the Sofrito camp of a Soca classic from Lord Shorty. His 1976 track "Sweet Music" gets a bumping tweak that maximises the brilliant electric organ flourishes.

Review: The lovingly curated Sofrito parties, hosted by DJs Hugo Mendez and Frankie Francis alongside The Mighty Crime Minister, have grown beyond their roots in the, erm, tropical climes of East London to beach parties in Greece, shady Brooklyn bars and festivals ala WOMAD and the Big Chill. Showcasing the finest in Afro, Caribbean and Latin grooves, here we see the Sofrito collective's first compilation, and what better label to hook up with than kings of all things funky and boutique, Strut? The selection on offer here certainly opened our ears to some dynamite tropical jams, which touch on everything from cumbia to Congolese jams, native Ghanaian funk, salsa and calypso. Basically, if it's exotic and you can dance to it, it's in here.
