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…
The bullion-clad masterpiece of these pioneers of Nigerian Funk and Afrobeat at their deepest and heaviest — tearing, wailing, mid-70s funk, heady with spirituality. Superbad from start to finish, no let-up.
Storming vintage boogie from the Afrodisia studio, loose and thunderous, with killer freaky effects and old-school rapping. You can hear Eno’s Edo roots in Papa French’s scorching horns chart. Leroy Burgess goes to Lagos…
At the close of the 1970s, just a couple of years after the classic psych-funk of Float, Wilf Ekanem and crew trained their frazzled peepers on Disco. Two classics here to blow your soul on fire.
Ka-boom! The legendary digger re-ignites the Lagos Disco Inferno and kicks off his own mouth-watering imprint with two sides of boogie-down bliss. First in a fusillade of five EPs, each with a spiffy poster.
Voodoo Funk digs deep for this Nigerian 45 cracker from 1973. The A is gritty psych-rock with a trippy guitar solo; the flip is an Afro-funk bulldozer, with gravelly vocals and heavy fuzz. Rough!
Super heavy Afrobeat, recorded at Ginger Baker’s studio in Lagos in the early 1970s. With a lovely booklet containing precious photos and notes by Orlando himself. Recommended!
