Lab Overview

"Belgium, not the first place you'd think of when it comes to Latin or Afro funk. Yet one of the greatest records to blend both styles came from the small northern European country, masterminded by Nico Gomez and his Afro Percussion Inc. 'Ritual' was originally released in 1971 on the Dutch label Omega International (Gomez was born in Holland before moving to Belgium in the late 40s). Across it's 11 tracks it delivers the kind of production, arrangement and musicianship that rightfully belong in a dictionary next to the definition of professional. Gomez' band was tight, and they knew it. It is a multifaceted work which intertwines equal parts of Funk, Afro-Bop and Latin traditions. The track 'Lupita' is a certified classic and a favourite of many discerning DJs. We hope this reissue brings it's blazing funk grooves to both new ears and those already tuned in to this masterpiece's legacy. Reproduced in original style packaging and pressed on red vinyl. Mastered from original tape." - Mr Bongo
