DJ Katapila
Aroo

Ghana’s DJ Katapila returns to Awesome Tapes From Africa for this EP of funky pan-African party music. In Katapila’s own words, these four tracks follow a simple equation for dancefloor success - “Francophone rhythms plus techno equals hot and danceable”. Amen. The likes of the title track and ‘African Techno’ reap the rewards of his formula.

Trotro + Bonus Tracks

Awesome Tapes From Africa presents 4 cuts from Ghanaian producer DJ Katapila, who is clearly a force to be reckoned with. These tracks are clean and minimal but also packed with rhythms, leading to frantic dance movements. A well-placed drop of a Katapila tune could really boil things over in the club. 2 of the tracks on Trotro haven’t been pressed to vinyl before, so jump on board!

Trotro

The always reliable Awesome Tapes From Africa return with this ace CD and double vinyl LP from DJ Katapila. Trotro is a fast-paced mash-up of Ghanaian traditional music and modern technology. Katapila sings, shouts and chants over backing that sounds as if it had been beamed from the golden age of detroit house. Ferociously fast drum machines chatter over the minimalist musical forms of gome, kpanlogo and gyama.
