CBS/Afro 7 (Estonia), Early 80s. New Copy ... $11.99
A set of rare tracks from the vaults of CBS Records in Kenya – tunes that really show a nicely complex approach to the groove! Black Fire kick things off with "Fire" – a tune that's got a reggae vibe, but a sound that's quite different than the style of Kingston! The cut's ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Blk JksMystery EP ... 12-inch
Secretly Canadian, 2009. Very Good+ ... $7.99
The Blk Jks debut for the Secretly Canadian label! The sound on these tracks is pretty incredible – with skittish beats and shimmering guitars that slowly building for kind of anthemic sweep – wrapped up with some spacious production that slides the vocals around the instrumentation ...

Cree (Germany), Late 80s. New Copy ... $18.99 24.99

Cultures Of Soul, Early 80s. New Copy (reissue)... $7.99 12.98
A slow-grooving boogie number from Junior Byron – one that's got a catchy sort of back/forth rhythm, which Junior uses to nice advantage with his swinging vocals on the tune! The version brings up the riffing guitar in the rhythms, in a way that's even cooler than the original mix – ... (Soul, Global Grooves) read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Soundway (UK), 1985. New Copy (pic cover)... $18.99
Supposedly one of the first-ever hip hop tracks from Ghana – but a groove that fits in nicely with some of the other 80s rhythms from that scene! The vocals are sung at first, then served up in a sing-song vibe that recalls earlier South Bronx party modes – romping along the old school ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ndagga (UK), 2013. Very Good+ ... $9.99
"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", ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record
