9/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 06 May 2010

Damn! These Next Stop...Soweto comps are well pleasing. Strut are on a mission with this three part series. The mission? To piece together a conclusive history of the roots of mbaqanga and jazz in Soweto aswell as the influence of western music on it's general forms. On Vol. 2 we begin to hear the influence of American soul and funk on the local artists who's fusions of traditional and westernized influences produced some truely outstanding results. There's well over 40 tracks compiled here, so too much to go into a great amount of detail here but expect skronking, lively and atmospheric takes on funk themes you may already be familiar with. Stand-out moments are too many to list but i'm particularly taken by 'Blockhead' from The Monks (not that The Monks though) and the cheeky Mulatu Astatke styled keyboard jam of The Mgababa Queens 'Akulalwa Soweto'. Much like the previous volume, this is a must have item for lovers of that late 60's/early 70's African fusion sound.
