Chronique Dusty Groove 

 

Excellent dubby funk! This is possibly the greatest record ever cut by Cymande –- the legendary British group who were made up of expatriated musicians from Guyana living in London. The album's got a complicated groove that's even more compelling than the earlier albums – with a righteous mixture of heavy bass and tripped out guitars that's unlike anything else we've ever heard. Tracks include the monster funk cut "Brothers On the Slide", a jaunty sample-laden groover, plus other nice ones like "Pon De Dungle", "Changes", "Sheshamani", and "Leavert". Very weird groove, and a mixture of dub, funk, and probably lots of spliff! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

L'addition : Album majeur de ce groupe aussi fabuleux qu'universel. Cymande réveille nos instincts les plus profonds. Un trésor.
