French selector and crate digger Jay Airiness comes correct with his debut edit collection on vinyl. As the title suggests, he's taking us on a tour of the east stopping off at various sweet spots along the way; "Magik Carpet" sees us taking off from LAX. The most trad disco cut of the bunch, its eastern bent is found in the Turkish snake-charming horns towards the end. "Arabian Disco" takes us further south toward Morocco with its resonant gourd twangs wrapping themselves loosely around the strutting beats. "Cornes De Gazelles" is the soundtrack to a party in old Delhi; all chaotic and energetic while "Walla Walla" sees us travelling further south to the shores of Goa for a sweaty throw down that's more funk and boogie than it is disco. Bon voyage!
