Funky sounds from the French West Indies scene – tunes from a time when the grooves were showing a lot of 80s elements, but still burst forth in some of the unusual rhythmic currents you'd expect from Martinique and Guadeloupe! The grooves here almost feel like New York material from the first part of the 80s – given their use of keyboards, beats, and basslines – but there's lots of pan-global currents moving through the grooves, and a melange of modes that almost reminds us of the way that earlier acts were borrowing from the Caribbean and West African for US and UK funky club – a favor that seems to be returned here as these artists borrow back, and make sounds that are completely their own! We love this volume even more than the first Digital Zandoli – and especially groove on the positive, upbeat spirit of many of the tracks – music that has an undeniable effervescence, and a hell of a sense of rhythm too.
