down in the basement
As much as we’re embracing the seasonally appropriate icy jams around here lately, it’s nice to be reminded that springtime is just around the corner, as we revel in the balmy island vibes from Amsterdam crew the Mauskovic Dance Band. According to their bio, the group is inspired by “Afro-Colombian styles such as champeta, palenque, cumbia and the picó soundsystem culture” + “the Afro-Disco and No-Wave scenes in their current base of Amsterdam”, and the resulting analog “Afro-Caribbean space disco” banger “Down in the Basement” is a playfully vibrant and infectious summer groove. Pretty dope cover art, too. Listen below, and look for the group’s Down in the Basement 12″ EP to drop on March 16th via esteemed UK label Soundway Records.
