Nigerian singer Eric Kol reclines on the cover like a hip American soul singer of the early 80s – and he sounds a fair bit like one too, given the mix of boogie styles on the album!

Soundway (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $22.99
The debut album from the Mauskovic Dance Band – a compelling combo who bring together rhythms from around the globe, then fuse them together in a dark and moody sort of way – often with the kind of early 80s elements you might expect to hear from ESG or Quando Quango!

MedumoMixing It ... LP
Lauren (Italy), 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $29.99
A lost combo from the South African scene of the 70s – and one who play here with a wonderfully spiritual vibe! The tunes are longish, and open – with some rhythmic currents that fall in the Dollar Brand side of the spectrum, but which are also topped with really tremendous work on ...

Amazing sounds from The Meridian Brothers – not a family act at all, but really just a one man operation – yet with a sound that's more than large enough to bring in a whole host of South and Central American influences!

Mighty FlamesMetalik Funk Band ... CD
PMG (Austria), 1978. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
The Mighty Flames never sound too metallic here – at least not in any way that's cold or harsh, or heavy metal too! Instead, these guys have a warm groove that's on the tighter side of African funk – that point when the sound was getting a stronger influence from American soul and club ... read more CD
