London-based Japanese DJ/producer Koichi Sakai debuts with an EP that boasts a fine cover of one of Santana's most percussive moments, "Jingo" - a track later re-imagined as disco gold by Salsoul artist Candido. Sakai's version, featuring vocalist Afla Sackey, is a little more laidback, summery and Afro-centric than either of those famous versions, with a thickset analogue bassline being overlaid with jaunty guitar riffs and lashings of sweaty percussion solos. Over on side B, you'll find two versions of the deeper and sweeter "Wono": a languid, percussive and Afro-centric take by Osunlade and a Pocz remix that joins the dots between Balearic electronica and Afrobeat.
