Solomon Ilori And His Afro-Drum Ensemble Igbesi Aiye / Gbogbo Omo Ibile
Vinyl debut of 1964 Blue Note recordings Donald Byrd, Elvin Jones and co in amongst resplendent Nigerian drumming. Around thirteen minutes of classic Pharoah and Alice Coltrane vibes, each side.

Riotous funk carioca blasting out of Curitiba, Brazil, by these proteges of MIA-producer Diplo, fresh from their remix of CSS.



Tony Allen / Wareika Hill Sounds Ise Nla Remix
Like a dream, but authoritatively, this remix from Jamaica magnificently crosses the Afrobeat of Fela Kuti with the grounation reggae tradition of Count Ossie.



Boogaloo Pow Wow Dancefloor Rendez-Vous In Young Nuyorica
This scorching compilation brings to the table the brilliant, explosive array of styles (at the time, warring) which burned up Latino dancefloors in the political and cultural ferment of Sixties New York.
