Following up on their “Live at Groove City” 45 from May, German funk stalwarts The Mighty Mocambos are back with another sample of their explosive live energy, with a 7″ of two brand new tunes recorded straight to 8-track tape during JAM PDM! Breakdance Battle at Fabrik Potsdam on February 1st 2020.
“Arabesque Breakin’ Suite” on side A is an original instrumental medley written for the occasion and delivers the raw, heavyweight sound that has made The Mighty Mocambos a staple of b-boy battles the world over. Side B is a cover of the Axel F Theme from Beverly Hills Cop, taking the tune from 80s synth-heavy electro-pop to soulful, tropical-flavored b-boy funk.
In these peculiar times without concerts, these live recordings are a real labor of love that capture the special vibes of a Mighty Mocambos performance while remaining suitable for DJ-use and enjoyable to the dedicated listener.
The 45 comes in a beautiful picture sleeve – a reproduction of the tape box used for the recording with a b/w photo from the event.
