Mukatsuku Presents The Triassic Tusk EP

Just when you thought you had heard it all, Mukatsuku Records comes along once again and hits hard with two tracks that have been seen on Triassic Tusk’s Screamers, Bangers & Cosmic Synths compilations, now available on a twelve inch doubled sided banger. With the popularity of Steve Monite’s “Only You”, recently covered by Frank Ocean and Theophilus London getting to the public and sparking an interest in African disco and boogie, these tracks are kindle for the fire for those who want to seek more. The A side is Liberian artist Tecumsay Roberts and “It Makes Me Dance and Sing”. Straight from 1979, this afro soul/ boogie slice of dance floor heat is a spacey, cosmic slop of sweaty bodies dancing way late into the night. Super funky and filled with Moog goodness, this one is a hot track. The flip, Commy Bassey Clay’s “We Want Togetherness” is a afro roller boogie track that has Nigeria written all over it. It’s from 1980 and the pleas of unity were relevant then and they are sure relevant now. The world needs this track once again. It’s for sure catchy and with the resurgence of African disco and boogie now mainstream, people will certainly have no problem latching on to these two heaters. Both remastered for maximum dance floor volume, the June exclusive card sleeve comes with an obi strip (not available at other retailers). For those not into the sound, or who have not yet ventured into this time period in African music, we urge you to dig a little deeper. There is so much out there, and tracks like this prove it. Listen to both tracks below, and order the record after the streams.
