12-inch, Vinyl record


4.70 32

A pretty great little package – and one that really brings together both sides of the Soundway label's music! The core sounds here were recorded in Ghana, and set to wax in London – often with these skittish contemporary rhythms that work surprisingly well for the rootsy vocals and classic instrumentation – all coming together in ways that have the same criss-crossing of styles that you'd hear in some of Tony Allen's recent projects. The package features two 12" singles, but almost has enough material to be a full album in itself – with cuts that include "Friday Night", "Auntie Fatty", "Yagga Skank", "1995", "Floor Excitement", "Floor Excitement VIP", and "Autie Fatty (drum talk rmx)".

All the raw percussion and vocals of the original are ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Sweet Lagos disco from First Planet – two clubby cuts from the 70s, served up in a mighty special package!
