Upstart imprint 51 Lex drops the second 12" from Mr. Babalola, rocking mightily on an Afrocentric tip with mad percussion and an upbeat vocal chorus readymade for Carnivale. I. G. Culture steps in on remix duties for his usual off-kilter broken ting, utilizing choice bits of the original‘s melody and vocal to build a heads-down groover in inimitable style. The B-side‘s 4/4 mix is perfect for your Trents and Claussells.
