Baiana (Wolf Mueller's Drum Drop) - (4:58) 95 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
Review: For the second instalment in Selva Discos' Optimo Music-backed "Brasingles" 12" series, Brazilian DJ/producer duo Selvagem has decided to reissue a killer 2005 cut from long-serving body percussion group Barbatiques. "Baiana" is underpinned by a fabulous rhythm track created using vocal whoops and handclaps as well as dense, carnival style drum hits, over which incessant male and female vocals and prominent Jew's Harp motifs rise impressively. It's something of a breezy, cheery, overlooked classic all told, so it's great to see it finally getting a 12" release. Fittingly, the flipside remix comes from Jew's Harp enthusiast Jan Schulte under the familiar Wolf Mueller guise. He re-shapes it as a chunk of pared-back Brazilian disco, brilliantly layering all of the original percussion over a snappy 4/4 beat.

Played by: YAM WHO?, LEGO EDIT
Review: On this fine EP from the Sterns Edits camp, Ben Gomori and SMBD (AKA Gilles Peterson favourite Simbad) take it in turns to rework cuts from 1980s Nigerian star Segun Adewale. On the A-side, Gomori gets to work on "Atewo-Lara Ka Tepa Mo'se", wrapping Adewale's original vocals and glistening juju guitar solos over a rolling, Ron Trent style Afro-deep house groove. It's super-sweet and wonderfully summery, suggesting we'll be hearing it in more than a few DJ sets over the next few months. Simbad, meanwhile, serves up two versions of "Ojo Je": a hustling, polyrhythmic disco excursion (the "SMBD '85 Raw Disco Mix") and a far deeper and more trippy excursion rich in warm sub-bass, reverb and delay-laden vocal snippets and ricocheting synthesizer motifs (the superior "Rascal Dub").

Review: It's third time around for this classic album, which Strut first reissued back in 2002. The band known at different times as Juju, Oneness Of Juju, Plunky & The Oneness Of Juju and eventually just Plunky & Oneness have been an institution on the funk, soul and jazz scene from the early 70s right through till the current decade, but this their debut long-player from 1975 arguably captures their distinctive blend of funk, jazz and Afro influences at its rawest and most hard-hitting. This release also now includes the slightly different single version of the title track, plus bonus cut "Afrobeat".

Review: For this album, London's Huw Bennett created music directly inspired by the magnificent sounds of the Mandinka people in Gambia, namely Susso and Kuyateh griot families. According to Soundway Records, while travelling and seeking inspiration Huw found himself humbled by such a welcoming community of artists. The tracks are said to be composed from original source material, in addition to field recordings and Huw's own multi-instrumentalist leanings (he is the bass player for electronic jazz outfit Saltwater Samurai), all the while paying homage to a traditional Gambian aesthetic. The traditional instruments of the local musicians and their distinct style combine with Bennett's electronic production methods for a truly captivating and, above all, soulful musical experience.

Review: The Gqom Oh! trip continues as the Durban collective recruit a new beat fusionist; Emo Kid. Already established in South Africa as producer for DJ Tira and well known for his sgubhu work-outs, here he breaks down the rivalries between the two styles with a sense-blurring collection of drum-focused, orchestrally-charged explorations; "Asbambeki" is almost grime-like in its forthright vocals and sharp beats while "Futuristic Gqom" rips and rides with a classic techno feel building in lavish keys and an expertly tamed and tantalising synth weave over the top while "Insimbi Yase Dubane" celebrates house music's love for the Afro beat with a Julian Jabre-level piece of euphoria. Elsewhere we're dazzled by theatrical orchestra demons on "Rains Of Terror", taken to tropical places on "Enkwarini" and given an evangelistic rubdown on "Ground Shaker". An outstanding new chapter from the Gqom collective.

Review: A staple selection from Strut since its Nigeria 70 collection, this momentous piece of musical history dates back to 1979 when iconic vocalist Shina brought together the likes of Biddy Wright, Fred Fisher, Saliu Alabi and more decorated Nigerian musicians for a one-off supergroup. This epic, slippery freeform 11 minute piece of pure Afrofunk was the timeless result. Having enjoyed a handful of reissues and returns in its near 40 year life, this is the first time it's been remastered and delivered with all its original artwork and a full list of credits. Perfect to the very detail.

Review: Danish singer songwriter Agnes Obel started dabbling in studio recording and production techniques at the age of 17. Fast forward to the present day and she has released three acclaimed studio albums: Philharmonics (2010), Laventine 2013 and 2016's Heart Of Glass. Compiling the newest edition of the popular Late Night Tales mix series, Obel explained that she was surprised at how much time she ended up spending on compiling this. She collected all the songs together with her partner and spent time listening to records, trying to see what would fit together. Obel includes new works, with an original song "Bee Dance", a haunting reading of Danish song "Glemmer Du" and a new version of "Stretch Your Eyes" called "Ambient Acapella". Michelle Gurevich, Nina Simone, Henry Mancini or Alfred Schnittke also feature among others.

Review: Efficient Space is a Sydney based retrospective label operated by Noise In My Head. Here they are honoured to share the rare recordings of Yolngu musicians Bobby Bunnungurr, Jimmy Djamunba and Peter Milaynga (d. 2007) - working in collaboration with musician Peter Mumme. Yolngu are the indigenous people of Arnhem Land in Northern Territory, Australia. Their songs are of instruction, story and ceremony. Mumme explains that the aim was to produce something that is new, but what emerges from the combining of existing ideas. Waak Waak ga Min Min (Black Crow, White Cockatoo) combines the previously unreleased "Gandi Bawong" with five contemporary versions from the original album, and a new cover painting by Bunnungurr. Tracing 1997 back to many millennia ago, this is a captivating window into the richness of Aboriginal culture and collaboration.

Review: This officially licensed 12" sees prolific British disco producer Ben Gomori take a scalpel to two cuts from veteran African musician Amadou Balake's 2015 album, In Conclusion. On side A you'll find a fantastic, eight-minute extension of the breezy shuffler "Bar Konon Mousso (Musicien C'est Pas Quelqu'un)", where snaking saxophone solos and sun-kissed, juju style guitars rise above a hot-stepping, bass-heavy groove. Turn to the flipside for a thrillingly epic take on "Massa Kamba", a deeper and slightly more musically intricate cut blessed with a blissful; Pat Metheny style jazz guitar breakdown, memorable chorus vocals and evocative horn lines.

Review: XOA continues to lay out a formidable interpretation of African-infused dance music for the modern age, following on from lauded appearances on Shake, One House and Soundway. Alongside Contours, he comes to Banana Hill with some next level transcendental head-quaking business that reaches from the roots of Afrobeat right through to contemporary FX dubbing business. "Too Much Talking" is a proper eyes-closed roller for the hazy moment in the dance, and "Express" ramps things up to a strident tempo layered with a barrage of congas and djembes. The hectic pace is offset by swooning melodies, all wistful synth splashes and plucky guitar chops, stirring the soul as much as the feet.

Review: Did you know that Lima, Peru, has earned a reputation as South America's party capital? Or, for that matter, that the City is home to a thriving "tropical bass" scene, where a dedicated band of homegrown heroes giddily fuse dubstep, techno and electronica? Peru Boom aims to chart the rise of this healthy but internationally under-represented scene, via tracks from all of the city's major players. For those not schooled in the scene's intricacies, it makes for fascinating listening, as traditional South American rhythms and vocals get mangled, re-arranged, and fused with heavy sub bass lines, fizzing electronics, humid melodies and tipsy, 8-bit funk.

Review: Oh my, it's another African Roadtrip, and we all know that means nothing but good vibes for all men and women! They've put together another fine collection of super-duper edits for us, each one of them offering something different to dancers worldwide. First up, Rober Helms' magnetic funk bomb, "Sekele I like It", is chopped and and reqired by Raphael, who also throws in some fine boogie action on his rework of Bozambo's "Nanas-Disco". Albion's edit of "Disco Choc", from Experience 7, is a pure disco-ball classic, all strings and euphoric love in the air, while Kotey's 'tweak' of "Push Am Forward" from Afro National is a gloriously militaristic march through the African planes. What a gorgeous lil' tip!

Review: When it comes to cheery, sun-soaked South American disco and boogie edits, few can match the happy-go-lucky thrills served up by Brazilian DJ/producer Joutro Mundo. For proof, just check this latest expansive collection of Brazilian disco and boogie "reworks" on Midnight Riot. Sadly, there's not enough time or space to name-check every highlight, but we suggest that you make a beeline for Joe Black collaboration "De Pe No Chao", a brilliant tweak of an elastic, synth-heavy, Portuguese language disco-boogie cover of the Jacksons' "Shake Your Body (Down To The Ground"). Also worth closer attention are the horn-heavy, mid-80s goodness of "Mariana", the delay-laden afternoon shuffle of "Olhos de Sa" and the low-slung, rock-tinged dub disco brilliance of "Os Passaros".

Review: Through the work of Awesome Tapes From Africa and others, we now know more than ever about South Africa's electronic music scene in the 1980s. Here, Rush Hour attempts to fill in the gaps in our education via a fine, double-album exploration of South African dance music produced at the tail end of the decade. It's an interesting and hugely enjoyable set full of tracks that fuse elements of local styles such as bubblegum (that's SA synth-pop, effectively) with sounds and grooves more often found in contemporaneous house music from New York, Chicago and Italy. It's a blueprint that resulted in music that was variously deep, dreamy, bubbly, warm, synth-heavy and loved-up, but never less than clearly African in origin. Pantsula, then, is a superb history lesson packed full of positive, sun-ripe gems.

from $1.95
Review: The unstoppable Strut label, usually associated to outstanding reissue anthologies, welcome a surprise package to their catalogue, and boy is this special. Ebo Taylor, one of Ghana's most prolific musicians over the last thirty years, is remixed by none other than Henrik Schwarz, German deep house king and electronic deviant. The track in question is "Ene Nyame Nam A Mensuro", which is transformed by Schwarz into a lively house number complete with Taylor's vocals and plenty of electronic tweaking and processing. The end result is just a straight-up summer jacker. Check!

Review: It was high time for a new instalment of Lego Edits, the new frontrunner in our favourite disco reincarnations, and this is especially true when the tunes in questions are already among our ist of absolute classics! The infamous "African Rhythms", by a certain artist that we can't specify on here, is reworked into a tasty, jazzy sort of stepper carrying a chunky groove full of sweet, kinetic percussion for the dancefloor. The Lego Funk Touch version is reserved for the "Yeah Alright" edit, a more intricate funk nugget taking into account everything from samba through to jazz and even a little bit of that house edge that we all need right about now. Party tools for all!

Review: Last year Greek label Carnibal took a risk and released a compilation featuring not their electro-swing and hip-hop sounds, but tunes with a Latin American influence. The risk paid off and now we have a new EP from DJ Inko. Originally one of the artists featured on the aforementioned release, here Inko has the freedom of four tracks to showcase his talents. It's a healthily, varied listen too, covering chirpy party anthems ("Te Quiero"), brassy Mexicana romps ("Abekabe"), feisty Brazilian house ("Mi So Bailar") and best of all the darkly hypnotic jungle body music of "Zulu".

Review: Palov & Panama Cardoon launched Greek label Carnibal in 2012 and have been successfully 'shuffling the traditional sounds with the modern beats' ever since. Here on their 10th release they shift focus from the electro-swing and hip-hop approach of previous transmissions, concentrating on the sounds of Latin America instead. It's a tropical and topical romp too, with highlights including the hypnotic vintage cumbia haze of DJ Inko's "La Cadencia", the fizzing electro reggaeton of Vida G's "Cumbida" and the skewed disco-funk of "Orere" by Umoja.

Review: It would be fair to say that Anthony Joseph is an artist of many talents. Over the years he's collaborated with a multitude of top-notch musicians and producers, performed some breathtakingly good poetry and written some damn fine books. "People of the Sun", his latest album, is another triumph. Inspired by Port of Spain's legendary annual carnival, the set sees Joseph wrap his own politically charged spoken word vocals around some joyously positive music bristling with Caribbean musical references. There are naturally nods towards calypso and soca, not to mention plenty of typically tropical instrumental flourishes (steel drums, pedal steel, chiming metallic percussion), though the influence of soul, jazz-funk and, most notably, contemporary jazz is arguably much stronger. Either way, it's a terrific

Review: Crate-digging reissue specialists Africa Seven has decided to flip the script on this fantastic album, asking a range of contemporary producers to "re-imagine" a string of rare soul, funk, Afrobeat and disco jams. Thrillingly for those who remember the original West London broken beat scene, the comp contains some killer "bruk" revisions - not least Silkie's brilliantly fluid and groovy take on Ekambi Brillant's "Soul Castle" and EVM's rolling, Bugz in the Attic style revision of M'Bamina's "Mosi Zole". Elsewhere, Appleblim delivers a typically fuzzy and bass heavy rework of Sorry Bamba, Dj Food chops up Sookie's organ-laden funk slammer "Rhythm on Rhythm" an IDM heroes Plaid join the dots between vintage African jazz and woozy electronica. In a word: superb.

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!

Review: Optimo Music have long been tastemakers extraordinaire but this latest project was too big and mighty for Optimo alone. Cue Brazilian duo Selvagem who have joined forces with JD Twitch to form the label Selva Discos. The impetus for this unification is a mutual desire to reissue the rare as hen's teeth LP "Brasileira" by singer Maria Rita Stumpf. The record was first released back in '88, and has been rediscovered following the recent DJ frenzy over tracks like "Cantico Brasileiro No 3 (Kamaiura)". Now after all this time, all of the record's 13 electronic-Latin-folk tracks are available again to a wider audience.

Review: Hailing from Newcastle upon Tyne, Steve Bird AKA Mr. Bird is the latest artist to land at Matasuna Records' nest. The label is run by the DJ / producer Alex from the SoulBrigada crew out of Zurich, in Switzerland. Beginning with the sweltering spiritual life music of "Dance Away" (feat Chief Commander Yaaba) this takes it cues from exactly the kind of Afrobeat we like! As does the splendid soul funk explosion of "Floating Funk" - now that definitely needed an edit! Well played too. He then merges said Afro aesthetics with the classic sounds of The Windy City's deep on the evocative jam "The Sasquatch" while "Carnival Beat" lives up to its name: working those funky and hypnotic Angolan polyrhythms that rise into a right frenzy. Bird has been based in Lisbon, Portugal for the last seven years and has released four albums and many other digital releases - including the album 'Low-Fi Classics' which was released by BBE Music in July 2014.
