Africa Express
EGOLI

The Damon Albarn-conceived Africa Express organisation returns for its fifth major project. Recorded in just one week during a jaunt to South Africa at the start of 2018, EGOLI sees Albarn, Gruff Rhys and Nick Zinner join forces with the cream of young South Africa musical talent (including BCUC, Blk Jks and over a dozen others) plus the country’s guitar legend Phuzekhemisi. 

Omar Khorshid

Airto
Samba De Flora

Airto is one of the most revered Brazilian percussionists having worked with everyone up to and including Miles Davis. Samba De Flora is his 1988 album that fuses Brazilian samba and bossa nova with jazz. Despite being incredibly well regarded it had been out of print until Soul Jazz Records intervened.

KOKOKO!
Fongola

KOKOKO! not to be confused with the similarly stylised KOKOROKO is the Kinshasa based group formed of not just musicians, but dancers and most intriguingly, inventors. Fongola is energetic, percussive, and can write a catchy hook, the sort of band who are almost certainly fun live. on Transgressive. 

Edson Conceicao
Filhos de Gandhi (Brasingles Vol. 3)

Another fine ‘Brasingle’, dug up the more obscure corners of Brazilian music history to surprise and delight us all. Vol. 3 is Edson Conceicao’s Filhos de Gandhi from 1977, and it's a lovely piece of groove. On the B-side is a reworking by Mike Burns, which adds uptempo drums for maximum carnivalistic feel. 12”, cut nice and loud for the DJs.

Seaside Lovers
Memories in Beach House

Seaside Lovers were a Japanese jazz/funk/soul/pop fusion three-piece. They featured Akira Inoue, Hiroshi Sato and Masataka Matsutoya, who were all artists in their own right. Memories In Beach House was originally released in 1983 and was never reissued on vinyl. This made it a highly sought-after artefact among collectors.

Nkono Teles
Party Beats

Throughout the 80’s the late Nkono Teles was one of West Africa’s most prolific producers, providing countless artists with a slick, funky reinterpretation of Afro-disco for the new decade. He occasionally made music of his own too, releasing three solo LPs during his lifetime. Teles plays all of the instruments on Party Beats to create a set of sophisticated tunes befitting of the album’s title. Now Party Beats has been reissued through BBE Africa.

Gyedu-Blay Ambolley
Ambolley

Resurgent interest in the music of Gyedu Blay Ambolley spawns another reissue. One spin of 1982’s sophomore LP Ambolley is enough for you to understand why people are suddenly so keen on the Ghanaian artist’s music. This is a set of superbly funky highlife disco/boogie for which Ambolley is a charismatic and beguiling focal point. Original copies of Ambolley are very hard to track down, so nice one to Mr. Bongo for getting this new edition together.

Jambú e Os Míticos Sons Da Amazônia

Jambú e Os Míticos Sons Da Amazônia is a compilation that takes a close at the musical output of the Brazilian city of Belém. It's musical output is usually overlooked for that of Brazil's metropolises but here we have the chance to address that. What you'll learn is that the musicians of Belém know how to throw a party. Maybe you'll want to go to one.

Pantsula! - The Rise of Electronic Dance Music in South Africa, 1988-90

Kyriakos Sfetsas
Greek Fusion Orchestra Vol​.​2

Teranga Beat had so much fun putting out the first Greek Fusion Orchestra compilation that they’ve decided to do it all again. The GFO were set up by Kyriakos Sfetsas with the intention of creating jazz fusion that drew on the nation’s traditional musics. As such, the tracks on Greek Fusion Orchestra Vol. 2 combine library-funk rhythms with all manner of Greek styles and instrumentation. These tracks are previously unreleased.

Kutiman
Sakla Beni (featuring Melike Sahin)

Kutiman’s new single ‘Sakla Beni’ is a collaboration with Turkish singer Melike Şahin. This track is a righteous bit of psychedelic neo-soul, one that mixes together a thick fuzz-funk bassline, slow stomp of a groove and Anatolian rock production. The end result is not unlike those Khruangbin fellows everyone gets so excited about. The ‘Sakla Beni’ 7” comes backed with the ‘karaoke’ version.

Park Jiha
Philos

Park Jiha first came to our attention with 2018's Communion which was a compelling blend of traditional South Korean musicality with genres like jazz and ambient. On Philos she takes this same approach, but creates tracks of such great density that they can't help filling whatever room they're played in. On tak:til.

Airto Moreira, Flora Purim & Sergio Mendes
Brazil USA 70: Brazilian Music in the USA in the 1970s

Reissues of music by Brazilian or Brazilian-diaspora artists are quite in vogue at the moment, but no genre revival is truly complete until Soul Jazz Records have got in on the act. Their hat-in-the-ring is a compilation of tracks made by Brazilians who emigrated the United States in the 1970’s, as the title Brazil USA 70: Brazilian Music in the USA in the 1970s should make clear. Sergio Mendes, Milton Nascimento and Flora Purim are among the featured artists.

Julie Coker
A Life In The Limelight: Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976-1981

It’s not often that we get in a record by a former Miss Western Nigeria. It’s also not often that we get in a record by a woman who was her country’s first ever female television presenter. But then again, Julie Coker is not your average artist. A friend of Fela Kuti during her heyday, the Nigerian singer and television personality is now honoured with her first compilation courtesy of Kalita Records. A Life In The Limelight: Lagos Disco & Itsekiri Highlife 1976-1981 draws from Coker's Tomorrow and Ere Yon (Sweet Songs) albums. This is a superb collection of boogie and highlife to add to the collection. Bonus points for those of you who spotted that ‘Ere Yon’ was recently re-worked by Anderson .Paak on his Oxnard LP.

Exile One
Exile One

In 1970 Gordon Henderson moved to Guadeloupe to pursue a career in music. By 1973 he'd started his own back, Exile One. This reissue on Tidal Wave Music, of their 1974 debut, shows off the band's ability to mix together funk, soul, reggae, calypso and Haitian music. The result is fun as hell and demands that you get up and dance.

Rob
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.

African Sunset

African Sunset is a very rare release from 1982 by Kabasa, a very fine South African band. Popular global eighties sounds are brought into dialogue with South African styles and instrumentation, with plenty of funk and jazz to be found in there. It is very unlikely that you already own African Sunset, so take advantage of this remastered reissue!

The Mauskovic Dance Band
The Mauskovic Dance Band

The Mauskovic Dance Band hail from Amsterdam, and have a rich sound that has grown organically out of the international whirl-pot that is that city. Lots of vibes from Colombian and Peruvian music, as well as disco from space, a bit of psych, some afrobeat, and much more, all filtered down through a vivid no wave approach. Lots to enjoy here, but most crucially, you can really get down to it. Eponymous debut album, on Soundway.

Recorded in Lyon at the height of summer 2017 in a series of one-take sessions, it’s an intoxicating mix of funk, jazz, hip-hop and punk attitude. On Buda Musique.

Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas & Uhuru Yenzu
Hitsville Re-Visited

Good old crate digger label Mr Bongo here turns up a treat in the form of this 1982 LP by highlife super-trio Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas and Uhuru Yenzu. Each artist was a master of the form in their own right, and Hitsville Re-Visited is a perfect distillation of their shared love for highlife and funk. Four bright and gorgeous cuts, presented in fully-official reissue form.

Altin Gun
Gece

With Altin Gun, first impressions can be deceiving. Despite the unmistakable Turkish rhythms and sounds, the majority of the band are from the Netherlands. Despite the gorgeous '60s/'70s album cover, Gece is a new release following on from their debut, On, which was released last year. But there is no deception in the electric rhythms, bold vocals and gloriously addictive blend of Turkish folk, psych and rock.

Something's Happening in this here Leeds. Something that draws on jazz and hip hop and funk and soul. It's fluid and fluent and you can dance to it if you like. That something is Necktr's debut four track EP. Jazz is hot right now, and the marketplace for this sort of stuff has never been more crowded. But Necktr's sense of togetherness is strong enough to shine through. On Wormfood.

Interesting stuff here from Grup Ses, with an album of two halves The intoxicating beat tracks that Grup Ses puts together, using distant Turkish samples and flavoured grooves, are powerful both on their own and supporting vocals, and that’s what we get on Deli Divan: the same tracks twice, once with verses by Ethnique Punch and once without. Fabulous beat atmospheres on Souk Records.

Akiko Yano
Japanese Girl

Reissue of Akiko Yano's debut album Japanese Girl from WEWANTSOUNDS. First released in 1976, Japanese Girl mixes together elements of Japanese folk music with 70s rock and funk to create something hypnotic. Yano's vocals dance around the instrumentation with a sense of joy and yearning, providing an emotional anchor for the album.

Nigeria 70: No Wahala: Highlife, Afro-Funk & Juju 1973-1987

Yes. Great news. Strut have been good to us in their two decades as a label, and one of the undisputed highlights of their catalogue is the Nigeria 70 series. As such, it makes perfect sense that Strut should grace us with a new instalment as part of their 20th birthday celebrations. No Wahala: Highlife, Afro-Funk & Juju 1973-1987 is another peerless collection of Lagos boogie tunes. Features Sir Victor Uwaifo, International Brothers Band and Etubom Rex Williams among others.

On Abeg No Vex, the producer brings together disparate strains of electronic music and ties them together with the afropunk spirit. Ekiti Sounds aka Leke, is well practiced in production, having worked as a sound designed in Nollywood. On Crammed Discs.

Tom Zé
Estudando O Samba

Good pub quiz fact (if you're in a particular muso pub, that is) - Tom Zé was the first artist to sign to David Byrne’s Luaka Bop label. Zé’s career spans many decades, epochs and styles, but most of his fans can agree that 1976’s Estudando o Samba is one of the Brazilian’s finest hours. A kaleidoscopic mix of soul, samba, folk, funk and more, there’s good reason that this LP was included on Rolling Stone’s list of the 100 best Brazilian records. Now Estudando o Samba has been reissued by the excellent Mr. Bongo.

There are so many different kinds of grooves here, gorgeously mixed-up with jazz aspects and psychedelia. A great step forward for Dexter Story.

This Is Frafra Power: New Music From Bongo, Bolgatanga, Ghana — Upper East Region

This Is Frafra is a collection of music sourced and recorded by Francis Ayamga (that’s King Ayisoba’s drummer) in his studio in northern Ghana. It is therefore a snapshot of a group of artists that few outside the region will have heard before, so what a fine resource this is. Vivid and exciting and intimate music. Released on Makkum with the assistance of The Ex’s Arnold de Boer.
