Bookworms "African Rhythms"

The opening drums of "African Rhythms" might say London, but Bookworms calls the streets of San Francisco home. Oddly enough, the track is a re-imagining—not a remix—of a song by experimental noiseniks (and fellow San Franciscans) Mi Ami. But where Mi Ami concocted a wild brew of tribal percussion and post-punk squall, Bookworms dabbles in U.K. funky house and colors the tune with enough echoed chants and drifting synths to soundtrack a wonderfully spaced-out tropical dance party.

Okay, I've even talked with him about this, and have come to the conclusion that people seem to have forgotten that HOUSE MUSIC STARTED IN THE UNITED STATES. This is more of a deep Detroit track than any of that dumbass funky shit being made in the UK.
