Review: More Time and R&S linking up is always going to lead to something fantastic, and this latest four track selection is just that, as we firstly kick off the project with some incredibly vibrant drum work and percussive brilliance from Ahadadream on 'Melty'. Next, Bala Bala Boyz rise to the occasion with more high energy drum chops and vocal lines on 'Sieta' before Bryte brings the grooves with the irresistible switch ups of 'Ice Cream'. Finally, 'Bleep Test' lands from SNOW, putting a final touch of rhythmic bliss onto what we can safely say is an excellent body of work.
Review: London based online magazine The Ransom Note launched their record label back in early 2016 and are now onto their tenth release. They continue their search for the finest dance music around the globe and serve up a 'carnival-ready curveball' here with 'the sleazy, Ghanaian Afro-Ghetto-Techno-Pop that is Bryte's word-of-mouth classic' entitled "I Like Your Girlfriend". Originally surfacing on YouTube dance videos, the low quality video rip of Bryte's 'bizarre' lyrics over Gafacci's grime/afro house beat has been popular with tastemakers such as Bok Bok, Mixpak and Gang Fatale. Coming from Accra's Azonto dance scene, where tracks are produced in makeshift home studios then swapped through social media apps on smartphones,this track has long remained a holy grail. The label claim that this is quite possibly the first Azonto track to be released on vinyl!
