Wait For Me
Hot Casa (France), Late 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
Roger Damawuzan looks a bit like an American soul singer on the cover of this excellent collection – and his music often comes across in the same way, with a nice undercurrent of funk in the rhythms, and very powerful vocals from the leader! The set's the first we've ever seen to focus on ... LP, Vinyl record album

Bahdeni Nami
Monkeytown (Germany), 2015. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
One of the most compelling singers in the world today – an artist whose fame has spread so far, he's getting production help on this album from talents as big as Gilles Peterson, Four Tet, and Modeselektor! As you might imagine, the presence of these bigger names definitely adds something to ... LP, Vinyl record album

Analog Africa (Germany), 1970s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The near-complete recorded legacy of Amara Toure – a singer who made an incredible splash on the Cameroonian scene of the 70s, but who only managed to make a handful of singles and one full length LP! The material is all tremendous, though – as Toure sings with this rich, deep sound ... LP, Vinyl record album

Skeletal Essences Of Afro Funk – 1969 to 1980
Analog Africa (Germany), New Copy 2LP Gatefold
The title gets it perfectly right on this sweet little set – as the grooves are raw and stripped down – often just to the core elements of Afro Funk! The music may be the most hard-hitting we've ever heard from this legendary combo – and it's served up beautifully in this well-sel ... LP, Vinyl record album

Kamuran Akkor
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
One of the coolest Turkish singers we've heard so far from the 70s – an artist who's maybe a bit more funky and a bit less fuzzy than some of her contemporaries – blessed with a heavenly vocal style that's often set to these very groovy arrangements! The language is beyond the reach of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tolambo Funk (deluxe edition)
Hot Casa (France), 1978. New Copy (reissue)
Rare late 70s Afro soul from Cameroonese bassist and singer Brigth Engelberts – insistent, hypnotic and danceable grooves that points the way to myriad trends in soul in the decade to come, well beyond easily categorizable Afro funk & soul! Some numbers have a punchier, hypnotic rhythmic ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jake Sollo
DJM/Africa Seven (UK), 1979. New Copy (reissue)
One of the tightest African funk records we've ever heard – a set that was recorded in London, and has this really warm clubby vibe all the way through! There's a mix of African roots and disco grooves going on throughout – in a manner that's not unlike some of the best cross-cultural ... LP, Vinyl record album

Sorcerers
ATA (UK), 2015. New Copy
A contemporary record, but one we'd rank right up there with the moodiest, most exotic African funk albums of the 70s – especially the gems we've discovered through the Ethiopiques series! These guys play in a style that certainly references Ethiopian reeds and keyboard work of the 70s, but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Songs Of Paapieye
Awesome Tapes From Africa, 2015. New Copy
Amazing sounds on an instrument we'd never heard before – the gyil, a version of the xylophone from Ghana, but one that operates with a very different sound than the more familiar western instrument! The gyil features wooden slats over a gourd, but with this really resonant quality that ... LP, Vinyl record album

Chapter Two – Nia
Strata East, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
The rare second album from Juju – the avant jazz collective who'd later morph into funk band Oneness Of Juju, but who still sound pretty revolutionary here! There's a bit more focus than before – still energy that's a lot like the best righteous jazz groups coming out of Chicago or St ... LP, Vinyl record album

Soul Of A People
Trolley Car, Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
A killer set of spare percussion from this little-known group – a set that's recorded with a very raw, rootsy style – and no other adornment at all! The instrumentation on the set is very spare – nearly all percussion, and performed on claves, bata drums, and congas – plus ... LP, Vinyl record album

Tramp (Germany), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold
We're feelin plenty nice about this sweet little collection – a treasure trove of rare funk tracks from the golden era of the funky 45 – including a fair bit of titles we've never seen reissued before! The folks at Tramp records have always been trustworthy when it comes to their ... LP, Vinyl record album
