Syncrophone is based in east Paris (Charonne). Being a record distributor we were unsurprised at the amounts of boxes and shelves stacked with records that they had waiting to be spun.

Naturally drawn to the disco and funk section I was lucky to get my hands on Mugo’s album. You may be thinking ‘Who the hell are Mugo?’…the very same thought that I had. But with a cover design oozing more funk than a funky ball of tits from outer space, AND being pressed on bright orange marbled vinyl, I just had to give it a listen.

As the album sleeve tells us, back in the early 70s the group had dreams of being famous and recorded an album but it had been left unreleased until 2011. After Kenny Dope added some reworks and remixes and arranged tunes to press, he released it on his label, Kay-Dee Records. I had no idea really what expect….

What I got is the funkiest pieces of funk that have ever funking been made…

Have a taster below, and if you’re feeling it hook yourself up with the wax 🙂
