Azali (inc Aroop Roy Edit)

Vive La Musique
Following on from last year’s reissue of the zouk anthem, ‘Tabala Mouv’, Aroop Roy’s Vive La Musique turns its attention to a late disco entry by Congolese musician, Sammy Massamba. An album cut released in France in 1990, propelled by driving rhythms and simple basslines, it's among some of the best examples of pop/dance music from the African diaspora. Label head Aroop Roy provides the edit, and subtly brings the track right up to date, with drum tweaks and appropriate synth touches. Brilliant release.
