The Patchouli Brothers first began throwing parties in an Albanian dive bar in Toronto's east end, but have gone on to grace the stage at a spectrum of the city's establishments. They hold down a residency at a rotating disco jam called Beam Me Up which, while held monthly at the Piston, has taken place in a film studio, an artist commune, above a furniture store and inside the Great Hall. Their debut 12'' for Basic Fingers features two cuts. First up 'Wicked One', a fiery slice of gospel served with a rich piano hook. After that we're treated to 'Magic Rhythm (Of Love)', a masterclass in pure disco-funk insanity.
