Rob
Hell Fire

Tambourine Party presents a reissue of Hellfire by singular Ghanaian discosmith Rob “Roy” Raindorf, an album sidelined in its time due to waning local interest in Afrobeat. As we all inch closer to humanity’s demise, the album’s apocalyptic themes seem as appropriate today as ever before. Fortunately, with Rob’s funk and reggae stylings the end of the world never seemed so groovy.

Rob

Despite his unassuming moniker Rob was one of the most vital Ghanaian artists of the 1970s. After cutting his teeth with the acclaimed Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou, Rob released a couple of solo LPs toward the end of the decade. Make It Fast, Make It Slow is his best-known, but his eponymous 1977 debut is a similarly delightful piece of West African funk-soul. Now we find the rare gem reissued by Mr. Bongo.

Rob
Campfire Creepers

ROB provides the soundtrack to Alexandre Aja’s new virtual-reality venture Campfire Creepers. The project sees the Piranha/The Hills Have Eyes director bring some eerie campfire tales to life for Oculus Rift and some Samsung VR gear, and the immersive element is definitely enhanced by ROB’s spooky score. Think Danny Elfman’s early work for Tim Burton crossed with John Carpenter.

Rob
Revenge

ROB’s score for the Coralie Fargeat-directed flick Revenge gets a double-vinyl release via Death Waltz (John Carpenter, New Goblin). It’s classic fare from the seasoned soundtracker here. ROB brings together influences from synthwave, darkwave and the themes of the aforementioned Carpenter for a collection of brooding techno vignettes.
