KALITA 12020


1x Vinyl 12" Reissue



Release date

Jan 1, 2022

HUGE TUNE ALERT! South African Boogie that'll turn the dancefloor to lava, reissued on wax (from the analog master tapes) for the first time since its original release in 1986! Original heater on the A side but the 9-minute dub on the flip is where it's at... the minutes-long sax solo will have you levitating... Kalita Records, please don't stop digging!

Where Sydney’s previous Black Acre outing focussed on Swaziland, his ‘Paraíso / Dahlia’ double-header looks to South America for inspiration in two cuts of bustling breakbeat intricacy and lithe, live instrumental chops, including the balmy B-side starring a delicious warm breeze of a vocal. One for the acid jazz daddios. Big tip!
Tastemaking DJ and Balearic production savant Tornado Wallace brings the tropics to your ears in his stunning 2017 debut. In typical Wallace fashion, it's full of sun-kissed Balearic shuffle and humid ambient chillers. There's a pleasing haziness throughout, with live percussion and instrumentation rubbing shoulders with glistening synthesizers, ear-pleasing electronics and pulsing drum machine hits. Yummo!
As far as collaborative delights go, this really takes the cake. Miami boogie wildcard Noel Williams (aka King Sporty) throws it down heavy with legendary Jamaican reggae axe man Ernest Ranglin - as you might expect, the results are incendiary. Cosmic chants, stirring brass stabs, laid-back Reggae skank, vintage disco and of course Ranglin's sweet gee-tar licks. Throughout this wonderful mini-LP, the duo switch between each other's strengths and bring out the best in each other, as all good collaborations should. Wicked stuff from the always-reliable Emotional Rescue!
