4 percussive edits by Afrobot, the grooves function as dj tools for various occasions. Soca Trance will bring some extra heat on the dance floor, it’s a heavily cut-up, rough electronic soca rhythm with fragments of looped steeldrum melody on top. “I’m Alive” is another Latin banger, a piece of proto house with some lush vocals in the background and a synthesized tropical bird flying over. On the flip, Kalao is an underground Afro/French drum track with lots of flanged percussion, cheering black vocals and an elephant passing by. Body & Soul is the most discoish edit of all: a hypnotic groove with a killer baseline (and a flute sound) interrupted by an uplifting drumbreak.
