Various Artists Africanism III
- Words: Ben Bush
- Label: Tommy Boy
French club kids have been gyrating to these house remixes of African music for a couple of years now and Tommy Boy has kindly brought them Stateside. The vintage 1976 Afrobeat hit "Kalimbo" proves that disco can be as raw as the morning after an all-night fucking spree. DJ Bob Sinclair mixes KC Flightt‘s accapella version of The Police‘s "Voices Inside My Head" with nimble funk guitars to good effect. The album overall is a bit cartoonish: synth steel drums and cornball booty-slapping lyrics left me picturing people in loud shirts dancing wildly on a Carnival cruise ship.
