Xtra Special (Dry mix) - (7:03) 109 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Earlier this year, Mr Bongo served up an essential reissue of "En Trance", the killer 1981 debut album by British jazz-funk pioneers Atmosfear. It's little surprise, then, to see them offering a fresh edition of one of the band's lesser-celebrated but nevertheless seriously sought-after releases: 1982 single "Xtra Special". First up is the sun-kissed mid-tempo breeziness of "Xtra Special (Dry Mix)", where Chic style guitars, cascading synthesizer lead lines and super-strong female lead vocals rise above a bubbly boogie groove. There's an altogether more spacey feel to the "Wet Mix", where stretched-out synthesizer sounds and delay-laden electronics bubble away atop a groove that amply showcases the track's killer slap bass motifs.
