Dele Sosimi is a master of Afrobeat and was at one time Fela Kuti's musical director. He recently released the much-celebrated You No Fit Touch Am album on Wah-Wah 45s and now it's lead to this. "Dance Together" is a supremely rare and previously unreleased cut from the album sessions. Now his album mixer Nostalgia 77 and Prince Fatty (aka Mike Pelanconi) team up to deliver a dubbed out gem that recalls the vintage early spirit of the On-U Sound label, Mikey Dread and Mad Professor.
It only seems like yesterday since the 'self-styled one-man horn driven funk music machine' The Gene Dudley Group dropped the ten-track album, Zambidoose. Although packed to the rafters with many raucous party-flavoured anthems, they've now decided to up the ante with a series of remixes. "Do The Cookie Dough Throw" now becomes an Afro/Latin funky hoedown thanks to Lay-Far, whilst Wrongtom's dub of "Tiger Jaw" is a more lazy, hazy Sunday affair but the euphonic future-soul of BJ Smith's rework of "Jackpot" is the standout track here.
