Opolopo - Mutants Volume 2 [buy Tokyo Dawn Records]
Reopening the doors to his private zoo of mutant pets once again, mad funk scientist Opolopo shows how his sonic radiation and mutagenic chemicals can bring on a whole new level of funk. You might have already experienced the involuntary booty shakes and head nods caused by some of these freaks. Others have had their DNA rearranged especially for this occasion, all ready to jump at you.
This second installment of the series features groove mutations of Slave front man Steve Arrington, disco house veteran Joey Negro with his Sunburst Band, Sweden’s Drop Out Orchestra with Vinny Vero, the jazz masters of The High Five Quintet with Italian soul crooner Mario Biondi and other highlights.
We receive about 200 music submissions every day, and threre is simply no time to listen and watch all of them. It is a very very rare occasion if I watch a video from the beginning till the end, but I have watched UP and enjoyed every second of it.
Let’s go on a jorney with Munich’s finest bass lords. The new video is documenting their shows as well as all the travelling - and of course the fun stuff, like buying cumbia cds on Tepito market and meeting with friends at sonidero bailes, huge block partys in the suburbs with walls of speakerboxes so big and loud they could make UK soundsystems pretty nervous.
Together with the euphoric wanderlust vibe of the song - an instant classic in Schlachthofbronx festival sets and longtime ravers favourite - the whole thing results in a world embracing and romantic thank you from Schlachthofbronx to Mexico and its magic.
