Should you stumble on an original copy of N’Draman Blintch’s 1980 album Cosmic Sounds for sale, it would cost you upwards of 1,000 Pounds. This, then, is a much-needed reissue. It contains four fine cuts that showcase the Ivory Coast-born musician’s distinctively intergalactic take on Afro-disco, where spacey electronics and mazy synth lines rise above bustling, high octane grooves. The album does contain one decidedly laidback and loved-up slow jam – closer “She Africa (Ton Tour Viendra)” – but it’s the celebratory brilliance of the set’s dancefloor workouts that most impress. Check, in particular, the anthem-like strut of title track “Cosmic Sounds” and the hot-to-trot, solo-laden Afro-disco explosion that is opener “Self Destruction”.
