Chocolate Puma – Afrika (Original Mix)
Zki & Dobre, Rene and Gaston, The Good Guys. If those names mean nothing to you then you may have missed the fascinating rise of two of most crucial European contributors to house music of all time. Now, Chocolate Puma can be found in sparing yet succinct supply, making their first appearance of the year for Junior Sanchez’s Brobot imprint and showing the young guns just how it sounds to have watched the market emerge from the inside. Initially a DJ tool for their sets, “Afrika” plays havoc on those exotic beats and buckled melodic elements that have hallmarked material throughout their careers. It is a welcome sign of life from a consistent powerhouse, showing that ahead of their impending return to Defected Records, the more senior masters of house are still tidying up nicely within the modern market.
