Africaine 808's first EP for Phil South's Golf Channel label, the double A-side Lagos, New York/Zombie Jamboree, was arguably one of the releases of 2014 - a sublime 12" that joined the dots between Konk, early Latin house, techno and Afro-disco. Hopes are naturally high, then, for this follow-up. "Rhythm Is All You Can Dance" is not as instantly effective as either of those tracks, but it's still rather special - think darting, woozy synthesizers, spitting drum machines and dense African percussion. Jan Schulte provides the obligatory remix under his Wolf Muller alias, dropping a bouncier groove whilst emphasizing Africaine 808's woozy synthesizer lines. Bonus cut "Revanche" is rather special, too, and recaptures some of the celebratory feel of last year's terrific 12".
