El Rego
Raw Benin soul, from the early-seventies 45s of Theophile Do Rego. Folk rhythms on modern instruments, John Lee Hooker here and Fela there, afro-cuban claves, and straight-up James Brown style funk.




Joni Haastrup Wake Up Your Mind
Ace, cosmic Afro-disco — his 1978 solo recording for Afrodesia. Gatefold vinyl from Hot Casa.

Theo Parrish, Burnt Friedman Meet Mancingelani And Zinja Hlungwani
TP's is an uglier-than-ugly edit, with no let-up for thirteen minutes, layered and shot with synth washes, bleeps and alarms, galloping drums, clattering percussion; Burnt's mix is more chilled, lithe, dubwise.



MonoMono Give The Beggar A Chance
Two reissues of rocking Nigerian Afro-funk, co-presented with Tim Love Lee's trojan Tummy Touch label. Yes, Tim!



MonoMono Dawn Of Awareness
Engaged and spiritual Yoruban blues-rock from Joni Haastrup’s band in 1974.



Sato Kunitaka Wandering Shadow Of Southern Streets
Blind travelling musician with a voice as intensely haunted and elemental as Charley Patton — not standard Okinawa fare at all — accompanying himself on sanshin (southern shamisen) and tategoto (upright koto).



Los Destellos Constelacion
Classic but questing Peruvian cumbia from Enrique Delgado's outfit, originally released in 1971. Twisting, glittering party music, steeped in surf, psych and Latin American roots.



Guelewar Halleli N'Dakarou
Heady, grooving, moog-driven, next-level mbalax from Gambia. Recordings of the legendary twelve-piece live in a Senegalese nightclub in 1982, out here for the first time.



Omar Souleyman Haflat Gharbia (The Western Concerts)
Hot Syrian dabke — highlights from trail-blazing tours between 2009 and 2011. Clear, dynamic recordings; tearing performances, as anyone who went along will testify. Tufnell Park was a sozzled blinder.




Antonio Diaz Mena Eso Es Latin Jazz... Man!
Chocolate Mena leading three lineups — featuring Joe Henderson, Jerome Richardson, Alfredo Armenteros and co — through Lalo Schifrin and Duke Pearson arrangements of core Latin and Jazz classics.
