Boomkat Product Review:
Remastered reissue of addictively tuneful synth-disco/bubblegum/electro-boogie from South Africa’s On Record label, c.1987-89
Absolutely deadly, this one! Scrolling back to 1987, the A-side turns it the fuck out with Whoosha’s ‘Miosquito’, fitting a mental, buzzing synth emulation of a mozzie to fit lyrics about “Mosquito, get out of my room!” over a twanging proto-house/boogie funk track, before throwing down the Chi/NYC-esque bassline width and energetic vox of ‘Nopaka’ (1989) off his eponymous 2nd album.
Flip it and Pamela Nkutha sustains the pressure sweeter with the fructose-boosted melodies and house diva vocal on ‘Gambling’, along with a deadly piece of Afro-latinate piano house in ‘Ano Tambura (Suffering).’
