Benis Cletin – Jungle Magic (Edit)
Money Make Man Mad – Sofrito Disco Dub
Benis Cletin‘s dog-rare 1979 effort “Jungle Magic” lays a warped synth over a lethal bassline and a slow afro disco groove, topping the whole thing off with a unique homage to Donna Summer…Originally released on Afrodisia records in 1979, the result sounds like the the confused love-child of a time-travelling Derrick May and a Nigerian disco queen – timeless eccentricity…
“Money Makes Man Mad” is an uptempo slice of percussive Afro disco. Bubbling bassline and skittering drums lock down the groove for a serious Tropical dancefloor excursion….
out of stock – sorry!
“Just because a record may be super-rare, as you know, this doesn’t necessarily make it any good. Well, this isn’t the case for this latest from this Honest Jon’s endorsed label; it’s super-rare and super-good. In fact, it’s rather incredible. Originally making an appearance on Nigerian disco label, Afrodesia, this slice of idiosyncratic acid-disco is the work of little known artist, Benis Cletin, who employs the most bonkers, modulating synth into this almost no-wave disco oddity. Beguilling, captivating, unique and utterly unmissable!” DJ Magazine
