One of the heaviest grooves ever recorded in Tobago – an earthy number that's heavy on bass and percussion underneath Nelson's vocals – and peppered with this weird horn that feels like it was pulled from Sun Ra's Arkestra! The tune's got a really timeless feel – hardly what you'd expect from its 1978 recording date – very tribal and rhythmic – taken into some more contemporary house/global modes on the remix!

Voodoo Funk (UK), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
"Move" is an Afro Funk killer – but unlike anything else you might have heard!

Voodoo Funk (UK), 1981. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A wicked bit of Nigerian funk from the start of the 80s – served up in a very hip blend of Afro Disco and leaner street soul modes!

Ubiquity, 2006. New Copy
Amazing work from Nomo – a single that takes the group way past their Afro Funk roots! First up is a totally great cover of Sun Ra's "Rocket #9" – done with lots of skittish percussion really driving the bottom of the tune – and plenty of weird electric piano that ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)
A groove that's way different than the disco you might hear on this side of the Atlantic in the late 70s – more a tight Afro Funk approach, served up here with riffing guitars and lots of tight horns that descend in a really cool way with the vocals! "We Like To Party" follows in a ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Ndagga (UK), 2013. New Copy
"Bamba" has a great skittish grooves – contemporary Afro Funk, but a lot more stripped-down – so that the percussion and bass are really taking the lead, and providing a perfect foil for the atmospheric vocals of the tune! This quality really continues on "Walo", ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
Ndagga (UK), 2013. New Copy
Baaba Maal's vocals step out strongly here on "Gwalo" – soaring over the top of the track's skittish Afro rhythms, and giving the groove an even deeper sense of soul than other cuts by Jeri Jeri! The remix is even dubbier than the original, and really enforces the hypnotic quality ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
