Review: When Bruno "Patchworks" Hovart sets his sights on creating an authentic tribute to a vintage style, the results are invariably excellent. That's certainly the case with this debut album from his Violaa project, which utilizes a swathe of live players - and vocalists of African and Caribbean origin - to successfuly replicate the hot and sticky sounds of Afro-disco and tropical disco. Most will already know the brilliant single "Spies Are Watching Me", but there are plenty of other standout cuts throughout On Te L'avait Dit. Check, for starters, the Trinidadian disco hustle of "Vampire", the William Onyeabor-goes-disco flex of "Tomowa", and the lilting Afro-funk brilliance of "Jungle Fire".

Review: Favorite Recordings has pulled out all the stops on this tasty E.P, which features big name remixes of tracks from Patchworks man Bruno Hovart's Afro-disco side project, Violaa. The headline attractions are undoubtedly Dimitri From Paris's two reworks of "On Te L'Avait Dit". The Parisian disco maestro delivers a fiendishly percussive, horn-heavy Super Disco Blend - complete with original vocal - before working the drums and delays further on a fine accompanying Super Disco Dub. Golf Channel regulars Africaine 808 provide the other remix, laying down a delightfully loose, organic and percussive interpretation of former single "Spies Are Watching Me". Smartly, they push some of the previously unheard instrumentation to the fore early on, before unleashing Violaa's original horns and vocals.

Review: Bruno 'Patchworks' Hovart's first full-length under the Voilaa guise, the Afro-disco revivalism of 2015's On Tet L'avait Dit, was rather good, so hopes are naturally high for his forthcoming follow-up. This fine teaser EP gives a taste of things to come. It begins with the authentically groovy, floor-friendly tropical disco hustle of "African Music", where punchy horns, fuzzy synths and sing-along vocals ride a killer, bass-heavy groove. Those wanting a sweatier, more high tempo outing should check the steppy beats, Afro-Cuban guitars and rich bass of "Decalement" (which, handily, is available in both vocal and instrumental variations), while "Problems" is a slightly more spaced out, reggae-tinged Afro-disco shuffler.

Review: Despite Bruno 'Patchworks' Hovart boasting a discography packed to the rafters with successful forays into all sorts of vintage dancefloor styles, many were still surprised at the brilliance of the first Voilaaa album, On Te L'avait Dit. This follow-up is equally as impressive, and features 13 more trips into classic Afro-disco and tropical disco territory. With Clavinets, punchy horns, live percussion and Afrobeat bass to the fore, Hovart and his many collaborators - including a number of French vocalists with African heritage - variously pay tribute to all sorts of late '70s and early '80s dancefloor fusion sounds. The album includes tons of club-ready excursions, including the righteous "Problems", disco-tastic "Kemtane" and sweaty, high octane "Mbele".
