1981’s ‘Explosive’ charts cinematic yet darker territories than its companion ‘Accade A…’ This killer Italian library album by Luciano ‘Arawak’ Simoncini was only ever released
on the elusive Orrery Records label, and is now very hard to find. Still very much under the radar, ‘Explosive’ reveals itself as a swift tangled web of beats for the discerning DJ. Tracks includes the driving cosmic funk ‘Hardware’ with sharp hip-hop breaks and spaced-out abstract synth keys. ‘Kangoroo Court’ is an even better alternative version dubbed with underwater and weird’ish train effects. More electric piano madness on the insane ‘Oil Spot’. Also includes the two superb Fender Rhodes and environmental FX tracks ‘Shotgun’ (First compiled on ‘Vroommm – Funk Cinematique’ and sampled by Tomppabeats) and the intriguing track ‘Warhorse’. Classic Arawak moods not to be missed! Fully remastered and
licensed reissue, limited to just 350 copies on black wax.
