Afro Tipsy

A 2 track nu-disco single (18m 19s) — released April 26th 2015 on Palms & Charms

The third release on Palms & Charms comes from Tokyo club stalwart Masanori Ikeda (Mansfield, Ikeda X), who has had previous releases on the legendary Flower Records and Cos/Mes imprint Snaker. A resident DJ at London club Wag in the early 90's, Masanori returned to Japan later in the decade and has since provided the soundtrack to many a Tokyo night-time adventure, most recently with his continuing residency at Shibuya institution Oath.

With Afro Tipsy, Masanori offers up a monster of rolling percussion and pulsating synths. Feel the stress of the day fall away, your veins flowing as if with the very energy of a thousand suns. Moving confidently to the dance floor, your head and limbs begin to move in new and unexpected rhythms. Don't be alarmed – you feel good.

On the flipside, the remix from Almunia (Claremont 56, Is It Balearic?) takes you deeper than deep. The sound envelops you as you enter the club. The continental winds and low pressure lift you aloft and you circulate around the dance floor, carried far as if on a warm jet stream. The rhythm drives, dubbed-out guitar echoing through the night. Leonardo Ceccanti and Gianluca Salvadori taking you to new places.

Receiving support from Kenneth Bager and Jex Opolis.
