When the first of Analog Africa’s African Scream Contest compilations dropped in 2008, it shone a light on the sound of Benin, a nation whose music doesn’t always get the recognition it deserves. Fast-forward a decade and the second instalment in the series is about to do that all over again. Compiled by crate-digger Samy Ben Rejeb, the compilation consists of tracks cut in the two decades after Benin achieved independence in 1960. While bearing the influence of the highlife, Lagos funk and Afrobeat explosions taking place across the border in Nigeria, there are plenty of outliers here - the slippery jazz-funk of ‘Asaw Fofor’ by Ignace De Souza & The Melody Aces and the poly-workout by Lokonon Andre et Les Volcans, to name but two. Fantastic artwork as well.
