The Return Of Disco Friday...
Stephen Encinas' Disco Illusion was recorded in 1979 in Trinidad & Tobago by a group of local musicians, and released on the obscure Kalinda label. The only problem was a lack of distribution which meant no-one got to hear this wonderful blend of Caribbean disco and Middle Eastern psychadelia, with it's extremely funky bass line and smooth soulful vocals. That all changed in 2012 when it was discovered in a warehouse in Trinidad and released to the world at large on the Invisible City Editions label and we got to experience a true disco classic that could well have been massive if released in the late 70's.
