Awesome Tapes From Africa, 1994. New Copy (reissue)... $5.99
Two sweet electro groovers from Ata Kak – originally issued on cassette back in the 90s, but very much at home here on a 12" single! "Daa Nyinaa" has this playful, bouncy house rhythm at the start – peppered with keyboards over the bassline – then a very cool vocal ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Voodoo Funk (UK), 1981. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
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! The groove's got some sweet keyboards alongside the catchy sing-song lyric – very uncomplicated, which really lets the focus stay on the rhythms – ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Mona FinnihI Love Myself/People Of The World ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A very cool Afro-styled number from the 70s – but one that's got a slightly different vibe than usual! The feel here is kind of a skittish mix of funk and more offbeat elements – at a level that almost sounds like ESG recording in Lagos – especially in the blend of bass, ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... $16.99
Sweet Lagos disco from First Planet – two clubby cuts from the 70s, served up in a mighty special package! "Top Of The World" has this snapping sort of vibe that's like a great post-disco cut from the US – a bit of funk and club mixed together, with very cool processing on ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Tony GreyTime Factor/You Are The One ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
A great Afro disco groove from Tony Grey – a cut that's got plenty of New York club touches in the mix, and a cool moogy part on the intro that feels like the synth on "Ring My Bell"! Tony's vocals are a lot more soulful, though – and this cut's way more complicated than that ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

HamaImidiwan N'assouf (main, Krucial Kuts dub) ... 12-inch
Sahel Sounds, 2015. New Copy ... $9.99
A slow-grooving tune that builds from layers of keyboard lines from Tuareg musician Hama – these cool waves of sound that seem to flow effortlessly from his fingertips, but all given this cool, exotic vibe in the tunings – so that there's a very warm, organic vibe overall! The whole ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Eno LouisMove/Hot Love ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
"Move" is an Afro Funk killer – but unlike anything else you might have heard! The cut's got these riffing guitars that are familiar for the scene, but captured with the sharpness of some South Bronx street jam – with Eno doing these English lyrics that are spoken more than ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Two sweet West African groovers – back to back on a limited 12" single!

Togo All StarsWay Out Of Sadness/Ekue ... 12-inch
Kindred Spirits (UK), 2015. New Copy (pic cover)... $14.99
A really classic-styled cut from this great mix of old and young players – a group who definitely bring new energy to the scene in Togo with music this great! "Way Out Of Sadness" is an Afro funk groover, but one that's got this great current of melancholy – as you'd guess ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Egoli (Netherlands), Early 90s. New Copy ... $13.99
Three great tracks we've never heard before – all under-circulated gems from the early 90s scene in South Africa! First up is "Abobaby" by Patleo 4U – a tune that has this cool deep-toned vocal chorus that's almost brooding, which leads into a bassy rhythm topped by a soaring ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record
