Dakar Audio Club – Dancing in the Moonlight 

Release Date: 26th June 2020

I was slightly worried that this was going to be an ill-advised cover of the song that Toploader butchered back in the 90s but, fortunately, ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ is an entirely original composition. Exeter based multinational collective Dakar Audio Collective blend their trademark Afrobeat melodies and rhythms with some glorious guitar work and subdued but hypnotic vocals. As ever with this lot, it’s hard not to get swept up in the energy of the song and if you’re not feeling the urge to dance barefoot on grass by the end of this then something has become dislodge between your brain and your ears.
