Comet Records presents “Afro Rhythms Vol. 2”, the first repress of Comet’s singles and remixes from 2009 – 2017. It’s a stellar lineup kicking off with Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer’s remix of Tony Allen’s “African Man"; a seminal slice of modern afrobeat-meets-ethereal techno that’ll busy dancefloors and excite patrons across the globe. Allen returns with “Afrodiscobeat” later, remixed by Africaine 808 and containing twerking synth licks, frisky horn section and skippy, afro-centric groove.

Classic Afro blues vocals are paired against a elastic soundbed and riotous house drums on Jeff Sharel’s remix of “Cotton Field” – an unstoppably incendiary track that’ll ignite any party. Krazy Baldhead deploys some tastefully sub tones and swirling sirens to “Awakening”, a producer’s-own refix of the band Donso.

The record’s a proper tour de force of both musicianship in the songs’ original source material and electronic production prowess by the remixers involved, who elevate these timeless track into a world of nightclub excess. A truly great release.
