Massive music from the Congotronics series – most of it making an initial vinyl appearance here in this luxurious box set! There's way more here than you'd expect – six full records of music, a bonus single, and a beautiful book too – plus digital information for all the music too, so you can download everything to your favorite portable device! The set's overflowing with some of the most killing contemporary sounds from Africa – including the albums Congotronics 1 by Konono No 1, the compilation Congotronics 2 – Buzz'n'Rumble From The Urb'n'Jungle, the album In The 7th Moon by Kasai All-Stars, the album Tres Tres Fort by Staff Benda Bilili, and the brand-new Konono No 1 album Assume Crash Position! The box also has a specially designed book with loads of photographs from the contemporary scene in Kinshasa, plus a 7" single with two exclusive tracks – "Coupe-Jarret" by Kasai Allstars & Akron/Family, and "Bana Mbende" by Kasai Allstars. And if that's not enough, the bonus USB drive includes 9 more videos, in addition to all the music from the albums above!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
