Our favorite German funksters The Mighty Mocambos are back with another double-sider 45 featuring 2 favorites from their latest album “2066” released in 2019. Both break-heavy psychedelic soul score theme “Superstrada” on the A side and battle proven b-boy jam “Concrete Stardust” on the flip were identified as two of the most popular tunes from the album during The Mighty Mocambos‘ recent European live shows. Here they are in DJ-friendly uncut & extended versions.
The 45 is accompanied by a homemade video for “Superstrada” made of live scenes filmed at the 100 Club, in London, and Mojo Club, in Hamburg during the “2066” album launch tour. Additional super8 footage comes from the band’s own archives, filmed during road trips in Germany, Switzerland, France and Italy, ca. 1988-2001 and edited by B.Hummer & B.Wagner.
The Mighty Mocambos‘ unique style and trademark sound are loved by peers, fans and critics alike and distinguishes them from mere retro-copycat-acts as well as overproduced plastic soul. The band continue to deliver their brand of funk with blazing horns, soulful guitars, driving drums and basslines combined with an extra bit of quirkiness.
