Kalabuley Woman ... LP Hot Casa (France), 1977. New Copy (reissue)...
Temporarily Out Of Stock
The album's only got two long tracks – but both of them are more than enough to make it great! "Kalabuley Woman" takes up all of side one – and the tune's got this wickedly dubby approach to funk – almost like Cymande at the start, but then filled up with all these ...

The lost fourth album from Cortex – recorded near the end of the 70s, but still with a groove that's heavy on Fender Rhodes! The record's really just the effort of keyboardist Alain Mion – who also uses lots of moog, Hammond, and other keyboards too – and sings lyrics on most ... (Jazz) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
Funky funky solo work from Joni Haastrup – an artist who's also known for his work in Monomono, and who sounds equally great on his own! Joni's got this tight approach that wraps together Nigerian grooves of the 70s scene, and some bolder soul star energy that would be right at home in the ...

Itadi ... CD Hot Casa (France), 1977. New Copy ...
Out Of Stock
A rare Afro funk gem from Itadi – filled with righteous sounds and knowledge, and served up in a dubby groove that's pretty unique! Itadi hails from Togo, but already had experience in the US by the time of this recording – and the sound carries some cross-Atlantic styles that really ... (Global Grooves) read moreCD
One of the clubbiest African records of the 70s – and a set that would be equally at home on a New York dancefloor as it would back in Lagos! Orlando Julius was always a funky cat – an artist with one ear keenly tuned to the American funk and soul underground, and ready to fuse those ... (Global Grooves) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Heavy vinyl, in great tip-on cover – with bonus insert too!)
A short, but totally killer Ghanaian disco record from KG Band – which is led and produced by multi-instrumentalist Kiki Gyan – and recorded at Lagos' Decca Studios in 1980! Disco Train is a rare one – with one long grooving dancefloor stormer per side. Each cut is a really ... (Global Grooves) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Limited edition. Includes a bonus 7" single featuring a radio edit by The Boogie Gentlemen.)
The Ogassa story is a short one, given that the group only issued a handful of recordings – one of which is this really unique Nigerian album! Ogassa have a style that's much more deeply soulful than some of their contemporaries – as equally committed to sad-tinged lyrics as they are ... (Global Grooves) read moreLP, Vinyl record album
(Very cool deluxe pressing – super-heavy cover and vinyl!)
One of the coolest Latin combos cooking today – a group who are heavily influenced by the funky Latin sound of the 70s, and who work here in a Parisian studio playing only on vintage instruments! If that sounds like too much hype, don't worry – because it's really just our way of ... (Deep Funk) read moreCD

A set of sweet edits of some of the best tracks on the Ivory Coast Soul collection – all re-cut and re-worked for the dancefloor! These are edits, not remixes – so they never play too much with the best elements of the originals, and instead pull out all the best bass bits, beats, ...
