Psychemagik's turn of the decade debut on Capracara and Nathan Gregory Wilkins' excellent History Clock label gets a richly rewarded repress. Still living up to it's original billing as "a serious study in transcontinental exotica," the more esoteric minded disco selectors that missed this first time around will be all over the super tough, proto house cut "Persian Rub". Executed with a big Middle Eastern twist, the track is instantly recognizable for its infectious hook borrowed from Euro disco classic "Margherita" (the one that popped up on Morgan Geist's Unclassics series). "Tokyo Takedown" takes us to Japan for a late night drive around the city, a sleazy mid-tempo rock/funk number with a distinct film soundtrack atmosphere.
