Unauthorised item in the bagging area

I got the Mbongwana Star album a few weeks ago but haven't got around to listening to it until recently. It's a bizarre and brilliant record, straight out of Kinshasa mixing Congolese African style with a hypnotic, trippy acid house vibe and making something very new. In this stew there are fluid guitar lines, thumping drums and percussion, strange samples, techno beats, all sorts. This single, Malukayi, is funky as you like, but ominous too with more than a little menace.
