Chakachas was a sextet of Belgian studio musicians, all middle-aged and married, who got together, recorded some sides and then went their separate ways. First time on CD for this tripped-out Latin classic from the 70s - a huge global hit for the Belgian group Chakachas, and used in countless soundtracks and hip hop samples over the years. Jungle Fever is probably best remembered for its title hit - a mad bit of funk with pounding drums, heavy breaks, and some of the sexiest mutterings ever set to wax. But the rest of the album is equally great too - and offers a slightly different take on Latin music than you might get from a US group at the time. Rhythms are bold, horn parts are odd, and the vocals sometimes come across more like an instrument than a singer - snapped in the groove with a real sense of tightness that goes way beyond language. Euro funk maestro Nico Gomez penned a few tunes for the set - and the album's an instant party from the get-go!
