Review

Second time around for Rene Zogo d'Ewondo's 1980 debut single "Africa", a Clavinet and guitar heavy chunk of Afro-disco/Afro-funk fusion that has become an in demand item in recent years. This time round, the little-known artist's superb original version - all sweet vocals, dancing horns, crunchy riffs and rubbery bass - is not accompanied by a bonus cut, but rather a tasty new trio of reworks. Although some will gravitate towards TVfrom86's tooled-up, filter-happy edit, it's the flipside revisions from Dan Shake and Folamour that hit home hardest. Shake's self-explanatory "Disco Dub" is a booming, hard-wired romp through layered African percussion and non-stop dub disco bass, while "Folamour" adds a little low-end swing whilst emphasizing the sweetness and disco grandiosity of d'Ewondo's original instrumentation.
