Funk is something Zongamin has in abundance, and 'Tunnel Music' (which featured on last year's Playgroup 'DJ Kicks' album) is a great example of cheeky brashness, with that bass guitar performing some unlikely moves.
Vocal tracks are scarce - the hollering 'Whiplash' an exception - but Zongamin more than compensates with a large range of colour and texture, with influences from Morricone, The Doors and Kraftwerk amongst many others. I suspect Fat Boy Slim would have given his eye-teeth to write 'Whiplash', something of a breakbeat triumph.
A lot of fun this, from something of a madman who clearly loves to experiment. Not for purists!
