Vito Lalinga clearly has no intention of putting his feet up and letting the world pass him by. He released a staggering amount of material in 2018 and seems set to do the same this year. First up is the third part of Timewarp's "Afrodisiac" series and seven slices of Afro-funk-fired dancefloor goodness. There's naturally much to admire throughout, from the lilting trumpet solos of bongo-powered opener "Ekskuus" and the chant-a-long 4/4 funk breaks business of "The Black President", to the punchy 1970s Afrobeat update that is "Imali", a cut available in both vocal and instrumental variations. Closer "Kumi", a deep, bass-heavy and musically rich mid-tempo Afro shuffler, is also top notch.
