Scattermusic unleashes its 14th official release, a super heavy three track EP by Melbourne group Congo Tardis #1. Drawing on the genres which have dominated their DJ sets over the past few years such as Reggaeton, Dancehall, Kwaito, Shangaan Electro and more, Congo Tardis #1 bring together uplifting flavors from all over the globe to create something that’s truly unique. Steel drums ride the snap of cheap snares, carnival keys pulse over white noise sweeps, the vocals are fragmented yet the message is obvious, tune in your speaker, put the lime in the coconut, pump up the tweeter, don’t worry, it’ll make much more sense on the dancefloor.
The release also features appearances from three close friends. Marawa the Amazing, the worlds most incredible hula hoop performer (check this link if you don’t believe us) lends her vocal talents on Sweet Lime. MC Damaja, one of Melbourne’s finest dancehall MCs contributes the rather warped vocal hooks for the lead track Wild n’ Ready. Finally, musical extroadinare, relentless blogger, radio personality and all round good guy Faux Pas contributes with his remix of Doala, influenced by the ultra high tempos of African Shangaan music.
