The encounter between producers, musicians and long-time friends Nicola Conte and Gianluca Petrella, 16 years after their previous effort together "New Standards" (Schema), brings us a 12" EP with hints of Detroit atmospheres, Afro spiritual jazz influences and a contemporary disco feel. The A-Side track "African Spirit" is a spiritual mantra, a simple dancefloor groove capable to induce an ecstatic feel; the flip-side "New World Shuffle" is built on the same element and is enhanced by Bridgette Amofah's vocals, adding a tribal vibe.
