When the first Mugwisa International Xylophone Group EP dropped earlier in the year, there was naturally much interest. Whereas that contained tracks produced by European electronic producers based on rare recordings of the distinctive Ugandan group, this follow-up presents the recordings in their entirety. Based around the 32-note homemade "Embaire Xylophone" (designed and used in a handful of villages) with the additional of local percussion, stringed instruments and chanted vocals, the four original tracks showcased here are genuinely unique and should make an impression on even the most jaded of listeners. The Diabolical Liberties handle remix duties, turning in vocal and instrumental versions of "Spirit" that thrillingly fuse elements of the 12-strong group's original recordings with sharp rave stabs, and sweaty drum machine hits.
