Something of a split single from Don Cuco – a set that features him remixing a track by Ibeyi on side one – really expanding on the warm vocals of the sister duo, with beats that are gentle and glowing, but which move nicely in a strong sort of Afro House mode! The flipside features two originals by Don – "Milan" which is a nicely moody club track, almost like the sort we used to love on early Nu Groove, with keyboards doing as much as the beats – and "Agua Es Vida", a track that does a nice job of mixing acoustic percussion samples with beats, all in a warm global sort of vibe! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Great work by a sharp-edged ensemble from Mexico City – a group who start out in familiar territory of Afro Funk, then quickly take the music in directions of their own – which includes a bit of the psychedelia promised in the title! Instrumentation features the core Afro Funk modes of percussion and horns – but there's also these cool spacey touches on keyboards and electronics, used in ways that really trip out the grooves and keep things interesting – and some of the horn solos are pretty great too, nicely wild in all the right ways! Titles include "Champ Fire", "GElatin Lover", "Afrodita Vs Tongolele", and "Babuino Groove". LP, Vinyl record album
