Tony Allen Lagos No Shaking
'CD Of The Week... the best soul album in the real sense of the word you'll hear this year... classic, blistering afro-beat', Daily Telegraph; 'as tight as a pressure cooker... fierce and fun', The Wire.







Tony Allen / Carl Craig Kilode Remixes / Original
Carl Craig back on Honest Jon's, in devastating form: nervy and urgent, epic and apocalyptic, kicking and funky as anything. The juiciest bits from Lagos (that drumming!) in fine and nasty Detroit style.



Tony Allen / Hypnotic Brass Ensemble / Salah Ragab Sankofa / One Tree / Ole
The shimmering, refined funk of Sankofa takes T's Losun for its departure point; the Cairo side is a burning basement session in the Ra big-band tradition, heavy on the percussion and choca with fine solos.





Brand New Wayo Funk, Fast Times And Nigerian Boogie Badness,1979-1983
Music from the Second Republic, twenty-three years of military dictatorship ended, at the crest of Nigeria's oil boom. Good-times disco-soul shuffle, mixing in jazz-funk, synth pop and Afro vibes.



Segun Bucknor Who Say I Tire
Politically engaged Afro-soul from the start of the 1970s. You'll just have to imagine the 'bare torsos, cowrie shells, shaved heads, and non-stop undulations of the trio of dancers, The Sweet Things'.



C.S. Crew Funky Pack
A late-70s Nigerian blend of Kool And The Gang, Mandrill, and the Ohio Players... with a Moog synthesizer thrown in for good measure.




Bayo Damazio Listen To The Music
Classy, spaced funk, originally issued in 1981 by Phonodisk, the most ambitious Nigerian label at that time. The Mighty Flames band expertly blends an Afro-cocktail of Roy Ayers, Kool And The Gang, Chic...



Manu Dibango Kusini
Nonchalantly brilliant, charged collage of funk, highlife and jazz, devised for Ossie Davis' 1975 film, and originally pressed in a run of five hundred only, all given away free at the opening night party.
