8/10 Mike Staff review, 19 June 2014
The reliable Sahel Sounds have unearthed another bizarre African gem this week in this never-before-released collection of cosmic synth twiddling from Niger's Mamman Sani, in which he interprets ancient Saharan folk ballads through polyphonic analogue synths and drum machines. The press release is keen to push the sci-fi angle, and the cover art certainly leans that way too, but sonically this has more of a north African-flavoured library feel to its rinky-dink drum patterns and reedy synth sounds.   In terms of the types and (lack of) variety of tones it's got a very mid-'80s sound and can plod a little in places, but what redeems it for me is the simple, pure melodies and gentle pacing, which makes for a smooth and soothing and slightly exotic atmosphere. It makes me feel like I'm on holiday. Perfect for those hot afternoons sipping mojitos in the garden and trying to pretend you're abroad.
