News & Reviews
3. Rachid Taha Barra Barra (12" - Ark 21)
Slow beats and bass, sitars, hammonds, native American Indian pow wows (or whatever you call them) and an African vocal. Sound like an odd concoction? Well it isvery strangeindeed. And, unfortunately, its a bad strange, not a good one. Just a bit too mechanical and a bit too soulless.
The Wiseguys provide the remix, adding more welcome fuel to the fire by highlighting the vocal and making the whole track gel.
