The Bonfido Disques label comes to life with a strong cast of edit-happy movers and shakers focusing on music from the African continent. Panama Cardoon is up first with the heavy-stomping "Olofofu", which rides a sturdy rhythm section and lets rip with some gorgeous, warm sax and a vocal hook that will get under your skin. Fixed Angles take on "Tabou", a gorgeous high life edit that takes on a supercharged jacking quality thanks to some savvy drum programming. Sirhan gets into a pleasant, piano-backed reverie on "Le Flute", where the titular wind instrument pirouettes over the broken beat with grace and dexterity. Chico & Bianca complete the set with "Anole", a limber and funky number with some carnival spirit in its drums and the most effervescent guitar lines you're likely to hear all year.
