Here's something for fans of dancefloor Afro-futurism to savour: a surprise studio hook-up between Dutch live combo Umeme Afrorave, and Berlin-based drum machine polyrhythm fiends Africaine 808. Both tracks are as vibrant and entertaining as you'd expect. A-side "Flamingo Hangover" doffs a cap to original Trinidadian disco, with bold steel drum melodies and woozy, tumbling synth lines rising above a killer dancehall-disco groove. On the flip, Africaine 808's obsession with tough, testy drums and throbbing, UK-style bass comes to the fore. While these elements are counterpointed by chiming, bell-like lead lines, it's the heaviness of the rhythm track that makes the track so appealing.
