Taken from his fourth album Isle Of Magic, here we find two of Mop Mop's most alluring cuts under the knifes of Raoul K, Simbad and Izem. With each contributor adding their own cosmic tribal twists, there's something for every corner of the dance. Raoul K's rendition of "Let I Go" takes a loopy, Ame-style tech approach with trippy flourishes of organs and horns flickering in and out of the mix. Simbad's take on "Kamakumba" is a smouldering steel drum delight, reaching further and further into euphoric pastures with emotional aplomb. Finally we hit Izem's take on "Kamakumba". Slower, spaced out, it stumbles with the jazzy grace and unpredictability of the original. Stunning.
