Djidjo Vide (feat Elikeh - Jose Marquez remix) (8:06)
Lift It Up Again (6:21)
Review: Given the struggles the World has faced this year, the escapist hedonism of the Sol Power Allstars - a jubilant, floor-friendly fusion of African, Caribbean, South and North American influences - feels like a much-needed shot in the arm. They're at their celebratory best on Sol Power Sound's tenth release. Vocalist Massama Dogo and guitarist Frank Martins lead the line on impressive opener "Va Se Da", a contemporary slab of Afro-house goodness. The accompanying dub, a tougher, sweatier and more bass-laden proposition, makes the most of the previously buried horns courtesy of LA band Jungle Fire. On the flip, Jose Marquez provides a suitably spacey, percussion-rich, Afro-synth style rework of classic Sol Power cut "Djidjo Vide", while "Lift It Up" is a sleazy slab of trippy Afro-acid with added hazy horns.
