Focus / Zulu E.P. / Crown Ruler

Some South African Machine-enhanced Boogie that dates from an early `80s cassette. Now selected by Melbourne-based record store, Crown Ruler, to inaugurate their label. Who do the decent thing and give Focus` Zulu E.P. a lease of vinyl life.

The three tracks vary in BPM. The more uptempo groove of Hay-Hay carrying a standout vocal. Focus` mastermind, Sello Mmutung, switching between sweet falsetto and dirty chuckle. Bright keyboard stabs punctuate Rock Batlanga. Before they let go and hit a stratosphere-searching solo. The slower, horn-led, shuffle of Moger, however, is this old Balearic head`s favourite.
