The new Orchestre Poly Rythmo set is here, Volume two - 'Echos Hypnotiques' - and as usual it's a passionately compiled collection of Afro Beat, Voodoo rhythms, Afro Funk, Latin & Psychedelia from Benin's finest & most legendary collective. This music is less lo-fi than Vol. 1, 'The Voudon Effect' but loses none of its exciting edge & trance-like genius. Over the years, much like trying to tie up neighbouring Nigeria's peerless Fela Kuti's prolific output, these tracks have been whittled down from hundreds of old master tapes & vinyl records to assemble a musical feast, the very cream of the Albarika Stores vaults from between 1969 & 1979. The wild rhythms and vibrant harmonies on here are rooted in the history of the traditional Voudon religion and I can think of no-one on earth who wouldn't feel the natural wonder & spirituality of these joyous grooves. I'm personally felling a lot of affection towards Analog Africa for taking so much time, love & effort with their anthologies. You can just tell the amount of work & research that's gone into these, the pressings are absolutely top notch & the liner notes & pictures fascinating. 2xLP
