Long-time compadres with previous form for crossing wires, Moscoman and Red Axes pair up for their first solely collaborative EP and it's a hoot: "Dikembe Mantu" uses shimmering steel drums as the lead melodic device before building up the disco-minded groove that chugs down the major scale with dubby allure while hand drums and chime lilt gently for texture in the background. "Rage In The Cage" takes us about 10 hours later into the night on a lolloping loopy analogue excursion that opens out into some deliciously positive chords. According to ESP it was recorded as a live jam... Oh to be a fly on the wall during that session. Beautiful.
