RELEASE NOTES

Sprechen sie rhythm? It's time for a new dance...

Welcome to the wonderful weird of Talking Drums - an unsafe space for poorly executed dance moves, misjudged vibes and narcotic bravery.  Semi-Cosmic, way wonky and oozing grooves, this is music for the fringe class.

The party starts with a tripped out tribute to an Italian inspiration. 'C60 Lato A' sees the crew pluck a couple of killers off a well worn Cosmic tape, leave them out in the sun a little too long then stick them back together with an experimental blend of UHU and fufu.
