Soul Jazz (UK), 2018. New Copy ... $11.99 22.99
A fantastic set from the contemporary scene in Lagos – a set that's very heavy on percussion, but has a slightly electrical vibe too – almost the same sort of clash of contemporary and classic that we loved in the Congotronics series from a few years back! The approach here is ... read more CD

Night Force & The Tom CatsDance ... LP
Afrosynth (South Africa), 1981. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
