Sublime sounds from the scene in 70s Mali – music that's an amazing hybrid of styles, and which has made this album a collector's treasure for years! There's echoes of familiar Mali modes in the music – especially in the group's use of blue notes – both in the guitar lines, and in the way the rhythms descend deeply – but there's other more exotic elements at play too – especially in the snakey reed lines, which are especially amazing – and almost feel like echoes of 70s Ethiopian music at times! The whole record's got a really unique quality – a blend of modern and traditional styles that's unlike anything else we've ever heard. Titles include "Siseni", "Yere Jabo", "Taasi Doni", "Nyeleni", "Malamini", and "Saajuru".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Hot Casa (France), 1976. New Copy
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 ... LP, Vinyl record album
Oriki (France), Mid 70s. New Copy
A definite eclectic groove here – music that has its roots in Mandingo and Dioula rhythms, but also features a fair bit of American funk and soul touches too – sometimes in the heavy grooves on the bottom, sometimes in the rumbling basslines and guitar parts too! The collection is a ... LP, Vinyl record album
Strawberry Rain, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A 70s Afro Funk classic from Blo – really trippy grooves from this legendary Nigerian trio – and arguably their greatest album ever!

Simmer Down
Strawberry Rain, Mid 70s. New Copy
It's impossible to simmer down with a groove this great – a wicked blend of African funk and fuzzier psych touches – all served up by Nigeria's legendary Survival!

Disco Train (LP & 7" single)
Hot Casa (Belgium), 1980. New Copy
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!

Strut (UK), 1966. New Copy 2 LPs & CD
A landmark album of Afro Soul! Orlando Julius was one of Nigeria's biggest soul artists in the 60s – and has been credited with virtually inventing the Afro Funk sound, and for being the inspiration to some of James Brown's funkier work of the late 60s! Julius came to the US at the end of ... LP, Vinyl record album
Black Saint (Italy), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
An excellent set from Julius Hemphill – one that has him working in trio formation with Abdul Wadud on cello and Famoudou Don Moye on percussion – players that seem to be a perfect fit for his spirit on the date! There's a slightly loft jazz feel to the record, but the overall sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album
