Stunningly beautiful sounds from Sir Waziri Oshoma – an artist who works here with a groove that's a bit different than some of the other Nigerian sounds you might know from the end of the 70s – a richly-layered groove that's built on warmly bubbling organ lines, palm wine guitar, and ... read more LP, Vinyl record album

A dubbier set than even before from Quantic and his Flowering Inferno project – a record that's still quite heavy on the range of Caribbean elements he blended with funk on the previous two albums, but one that also seems to draw a bit more strongly from the sound of Kingston overall!
