Idrissa SOUMAORO / L'ECLIPSE DE L'IJA - Nissodia
Mr Bongo - MRB 12053
Beastie Boy Mike D Edit has decided to rework Malian artists Idrissa Soumaoro and L'Eclipse De L'I.J.A. and their track 'Nissodia' - from the 1978 album Le Tioko-Tioko - for this new one on Brighton label Mr Bongo. It is the second time it has landed on the label having previously been on The Original Sound Of Mali in 2017 and now comes on limited yellow vinyl. Both tunes are pumping, full flavour Afro jams with screeching melodies and big, jangling, angular guitars all powered by funky beats. Each one is guaranteed to light up any cultured dancefloor.
