Review: Opolopo and Alafia join forces on "Axxanxxan/Axxiove," a two-track EP bursting with infectious energy on Canopy Records. This release isn't your average house offering. It's a full-fledged adventure that blends captivating percussion with vibrant disco and Afro influences. Both tracks, "Axxanxxan" and "Axxiove," weave intricate layers of percussion that lock listeners in with a tribal feel. But this EP goes beyond just rhythm. "Axxanxxan," takes the tropical route. Think metallic basslines swirling alongside chopped guitar riffs and washes of synths. It's a heady concoction that evokes a vibrant, sun-drenched dance floor. "Axxiove" prioritizes driving drums, creating a hypnotic pulse that's nothing short of scorching. Subtle cosmic elements weave through the track, adding a touch of otherworldly intrigue. A must-have for disco devotees alike, offering two distinct gems that will keep any party moving.

Review: If you've been longing for a musical escape to a tropical paradise but find yourself stuck in the concrete jungle, fear not - Sam Redmore has you covered! CNPY007, the latest gem on the Canopy label, showcases the sonic wizardry of Birmingham's very own maestro, Sam Redmore. Known for his soul-soaked magic and genre-defying prowess, Sam Redmore takes us on a wild ride through a musical rainforest with his re-imagined versions of tropical synth future-classics. Picture this: Tough afro-centric broken beats wrestling with dirty basslines under the dazzling spotlight of Chic-esque guitars and icy synths. It's a musical jungle gym where every twist and turn unveils a new sonic surprise. What sets this release apart is not just the masterful reinvention of classics but the live energy injected into the mix. Sam has summoned a talented crew of players who deliver performances so slick they'd make a tropical snake jealous. The original arrangements get a spicy makeover, turning the dancefloor into a vibrant carnival of sound and rhythm. "The Sam Redmore Reworks" is a refreshing burst of exotic brilliance. It's as if Sam threw a musical luau, and we're all invited to join in the celebration.

Assanssan - (5:42) 122 BPM
Assiove - (6:04) 123 BPM
Assanssan (Bosq remix) - (6:23) 123 BPM Hot
Review: Alafia emerged as a studio endeavor during the mid-1980s in Paris. Conceived and composed by the visionary musician Philip Nikwe, it united musicians hailing from Benin, Cameroon, and the French Antilles. The reissued title track now includes a remix by Bosq, an Afro/Latin specialist from Boston, adding a new flavor to the composition. Additionally, 'Assiove' possesses a charming appeal, thanks to its electrofunk bassline and energetic scratching. Fans of Afro-funk are sure to embrace this offering.
