Shangaan Electro’s BBC remixes Nacho Patrol
Not much is known about the release just yet, other than that it is entitled Lineas Angola and set for release on Funkaholic’s Rush Hour-affiliated Kindred Spirits imprint.
The Nacho Patrol guise is one of Wolfers’ most interesting – if little used – monikers. In recent years, he’s used it as an outlet for a style probably best dubbed “afro-cosmic” – a sweaty, Malaria-ridden fusion of Afro-disco, Italo and cosmic disco. Last year saw the release of The Africa Jet Band Album, described by Juno Plus writer Matt Anniss as”a sweaty, light-headed mixture cascading synths, urgent clavinet lines, heavy organs, prominent melodies and Afro-influenced percussion”.
Little known South African outfit BBC are a peculiar but fascinating choice for remixer; they came to prominence with two tracks on the excellent Shangaan Electro: New Wave Dance Music From South Africa compilation, released in 2010 via Honest Jon’s.
No word on a release date yet but keep an eye on Juno Plus for more details as they emerge.
