Boomkat Product Review:
First digital issue of a proper tribalist house template by Ben Cenac - Dream2Science, Newcleus - originally released in 1990. A prime example of into-the-'90s Afro-futurism, 'Bang The Drums' makes explicit reference to house music's roots in seven pieces putting a rugged yet mystic New York on the Chicago sound and closely mirroring the UK's dreamy but rude bleep techno and acid styles. 'Africa' is a killer workout with technoid stabs and busy drum programming, further explored in 'Tribal Rhythm, whilst 'Zanzibar' gives room for some proper pan-pipe riffing, and 'Zulu (We're One Nation)' sounds like it coulda marched out of a Sheffield steel press. Make sure to check 'Secrets Of The Nile' for some of that inimitable Cenac deep house magic (even if that lead riff does remind us of Simply Red's 'Fairground'). Tip!!!
