Dengue Fever – Dengue Fever 2003-2015 (LP Yellow/Red Splatter)
30.00 € inc. VAT
Dengue Fever is what happens when musicians are record collectors, travelers, revivalists and extenders of tradition. Instead of simply falling in love with music that was literally almost eradicated, Dengue Fever helped nurture it back to health and propel it into the future.
I first heard Dengue Fever in the mid-2000’s, and I’ve been lucky enough to present them in NYC at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theater, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, and globalFEST, also in the the United Arab Emirates at The Arts Center at NYU Abu Dhabi (basically, where I go, they go…) to large and diverse first-time audiences. Each time, I watched crowds transfixed by Dengue Fever’s unfamiliar yet familiar sound.
This album is a pick of some of the best loved tracks by the outstanding six-piece ensemble, documentaring their first 12 years and released on limited edition vinyl and available for download. If you love hypnotic global grooves and don’t already have Dengue Fever’s back catalogue, then this is a timely and perfect way in.
