Keeping up the rare Latin vinyl 45 pressure, label Matasuna step up a gear by dropping this first ever vinyl-only reissue of two seventies cuts by Peruvian Latin funk-soul brothers Black Sugar a mere month after the last drop from Enrique Lynch. First up is Viajecito which travels an initially psych-funky road of sinister wah-wah and tribal screams before lightening the mood somewhat by adding in more conventional cheery Latin funky piano, horns and conga. Oh and waits nearly a full two minutes of its five minute length before the vocals kick in. Opening in a far more dreamy manner before picking up to an even faster pace is the flip – legendary Latin northern soul cut Too Late. It’s already sold out on the label’s Bandcamp even though release was mere days ago so don’t sit around.
