Tom Blip - Wrong Guanco (Blip Discs 002)
Blip Discs is back with another brilliant record from label owner Tom Blip. After releasing an O'Flynn record which flew off the shelves in a matter of days Blip Discs had to repress a limited number of the debut release, so there might be some knocking about if you missed it the first time (Bradley Zero and Gilles Peterson got theirs).
This record further explores the label's tropical mindset with the title track exercising a relentless, and seemingly unending conga workout. The track is nicely balanced out with a marching bassline that will keep you dancing all night long.
The flip side this continues in the right direction. 'Shekere', the name of the B1, is a West African percussion instrument that plays it's role, flirting with the wobbling bassline. This certainly a track for the earlier hours of the morning.
Blip Discs now have two interesting records under their belt and they're definitely a label to keep an eye on.
