Juno Record UK:
Launched last year, the MUKAT Edits series fit snugly alongside the likes of Supafrico and Soundway in providing dancefloor focused rerubs of obscure Afro-disco and Latin American boogie gems with the debut release proving hugely popular at Juno. The formula is left untainted on this second volume, with opening track "Afro Disco Distraction" setting the tone; allegedly sourced from an ultra rare pressing, the power of this instrumental edit is all in that gloriously strung out bassline. Alongside it "Sao Paolo Brazilian Groove Thang" opts for a more serene approach, gently sauntering through slo-mo Tropicala boogie which hits "sublime" when the horn section appears. Face down, MUKAT Edits get heads down on the appropriately titled rugged funk work out "Bassline Frenzy" whilst the Yaruba Disco edit of "Are You Ready Now" ends proceedings on a joyous vocal note with a rework of some Nigerian curio.
