The new stunning single by The Dining Rooms contains 3 tracks.
Two mixes of ‘Afrolicious’ on Side A: the original and the Carmel remix. Afrolicious is a great dance track. Perfectly combining elements of Ambient, Afrobeat and Funk, the tune takes shape into a cinematic theme, with an irresistibly driving hook. Class, diversity and a whole heap of groove come out of this track to shake even the most sophisticated dance-floor. The vocal intro sounding like Martin Luther King, disguises a house/broken beat track with fat bass-line. Nasty, sweaty yet unmistakably funky, this is a tune evolving into many sounds.
On Side B “Thin Ice” gets the Paul & Mark (aka Fedreghini & Bianchi) cool lick. The vocals introduce a Latin-Jazz track where the piano drives rhythms through echoes of Latin America. A splendid trumpet solo garnishes the tune, giving way to another fabulous trombone solo just when the palate seems to feel satisfied. So the song slips away gently yet rhythmically energetic.
