Tony Allen & Abayomy Afrobeat Orchestra & BnegaoMeus Filhos (afrobeat rework, afro beatz rmx) (10" single) ... 12-inch
Comet (France), 2012. New Copy ... $15.99
A sweet little single – not just for the cool 10" format, but for the great grooves within! "Meus Filhos" is a classic funky track written by Jorge Ben – and delivered here in a tight Afro Funk mode that's way different than the original – lots of tight drums from ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Esnard Boisdur/Frankie Francis & SimbadSoufwans (3am mix, dub) ... 12-inch
Sofrito (UK), 1991. New Copy ... $15.99
A pumped-up version of this classic bit of gwo ka – as Frankie Francis and Simbad add in these sweet electric touches to "Soufwans" – a cut originally released by Esnard Boisdur in 1991, but which sounds even better here! All the raw percussion and vocals of the original are ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Soundway (UK), 2012. New Copy 2 x 12 Inch ... $14.99
A pretty great little package – and one that really brings together both sides of the Soundway label's music!

Push The Fader, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99
A great collaboration between DJ Center and Akyoa Afrobeat Project – one that takes the Afro Funk group into some great new territory! The vibe here still echoes the classic modes of Akyoa's other records, but also adds in some slight clubby touches too – focusing a bit more on the ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Mona FinnihI Love Myself/People Of The World ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A very cool Afro-styled number from the 70s – but one that's got a slightly different vibe than usual! The feel here is kind of a skittish mix of funk and more offbeat elements – at a level that almost sounds like ESG recording in Lagos – especially in the blend of bass, ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record
(Very cool package – a pic sleeve with a poster too!)
