Lagos Chop Up
Fuji And Afrobeat, Highlife And Juju

HONEST JON'S RECORDS

‘*****’, The Independent; 'a vibrancy and energy that make it impossible to sit still’, Metro; 'shines from Shina to Shina', The Beat; 'CD Of The Week... astonishing', Daily Telegraph; 'incendiary', The Observer.

Fela's success in the West has hidden from view the diversity of modern Nigerian music. Like Lagos All Routes, whilst Chop Up sets out to put things in perspective — ranging across styles from the mid-sixties to the early eighties — musically it is mind-boggling.

'Both albums crackle with intelligence and electricity' (The Wire).
'In a word, it's heaven. As is the companion album' (All About Jazz).

Here, there is juju, apala, afrofunk, highlife. Some breathtaking classic fuji — raw Muslim street music — for twenty-five years now the real soundtrack of Lagos youth. And the Afrobeat tracks include one of the best you'll ever hear — thirteen minutes of Shina WIlliams And His African Percussions.

As Chief Ebenezer Obey puts it - 'Eyi Yato', something different.

With detailed notes by Michael Veal (Fela's biographer) and great artwork by the young Lagotian Ogunajo Ademola: 'beautifully packaged' (Time Out).
