Hermanos Latinos - (3:48) 106 BPM

Review: Here's something of a surprise from the normally funk and soul-centric Athens of the North label: a "heavy salsa" digital 7" featuring two killer cuts from contemporary outfit Grupo Magnetico. It's a taster for their forthcoming debut album; if these two straight-to-tape cuts are anything to go by, that set will be well worth picking up. Both tracks sound like they could have been recorded by Colombian musicians in New York during the heyday of Boogaloo, with A-side "Vampiras" - a typically undulating salsa groove which is enlivened by group male vocals and heavy horns - just edging out the gentler but punchier "Hermanos Latinos" in the "standout" stakes.

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: Ghetto Kumbe are a three man band. Their music is a unique blend of house beats with traditional west African rhythms such as the lambam, soli, sofa, kassa and makru among others. These are merged with Afro-Colombian rhythms such as cumbia, bullerengue, son palenquero and the chalupa del rio. Their forthcoming EP "Soy Selva" (translated as "I'm Jungle") is about the ancient people of Colombia, their traditions, their relations with mother nature, universal respect and ritual dancing. The high-octane spiritual life music of "Ware Warrior" for instance reaches neat tribal moments while Dagbani Dance (feat Zongo Abongo) goes for a more traditional and ritualistic vibe with its hypnotic rhythm arrangements and vocal chants. Sublime music for proper trance induction sessions. However, there's much more about this EP than the ultimate innovative act from the emerging Colombian melting pot.

Review: Hot Casa's latest deluxe reissue should delight all those who enjoy Afro-funk fusion from the early 1980s. It comes from Togolese artist Itadi K Bonney and is thoroughly obscure even by Afro reissue standards (if you can find an original copy for sale, it will cost you the best part of L900). Bonney and his backing band recorded and released it in 1983, filling the album with rich political soul, William Onyeabor style Moog motifs and thrillingly loose fusions of U.S funk, boogie and contemporaneous African dancefloor styles. This edition not only comes with an insert containing a rare interview with the now sadly departed singer, but also two previously unreleased tracks. In other words, it should be an essential purchase.

Review: Berlin's Daniel Haaksman is famous for helping introduce the world to baile funk. Since then his inspiration has shifted from South America to Africa and here he really explores that continent on second album "African Fabrics". There are 11 tracks that feature many styles and collaborations, highlights of which include the kinetic Afro grooves of "Akabongi" featuring Township Tech hero Spoek Mathambo, the electro tribal ritual of "Kaggua" and the off-the-wall percussive mantra "Black Coffee". An essential release.

Review: A collaborative recording project between Optimo Music artists MR TC and Whilst - Tafi Allstars also features members of the Tafi Cultural Institute of Tafi Atome, Ghana. They secured funding from Creative Scotland to travel there in November 2016 and record a mini-album of tracks that blend the rhythms and melodies of traditional Borborbor and Agbadza drumming forms, with Ewe songwriting and electronic instrumentation/dub recording techniques. The six tracks on the record came to fruition through various ways of working. Projects like this and the 'Youth Stand Up!' album (which was released on Autonomous Africa in 2015) are of a great help to the local community. After returning, all the tracks were finalised and mixed at the Green Door Studio in Glasgow with the help of Stuart Evans and Emily Maclaren. All the proceeds from the sale of this record go back to Tafi, to fund the completion of the Ghanaian Door Studio.

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: Henrik Schwarz's surprise remix of "Ene Nyame Nam 'A' Mensuro' - a suitably obscure collaboration between Ghanian highlife legends Ebo Taylor and Pat Thomas, originally released somewhere round the turn of the '80s on a ridiculously rare LP - has arguably been one of the underground dancefloor hits of the summer. A ten-minute chunk of loose and languid, Highlife-deep house fusion, Schwarz has cleverly combined sections of the sweet-as-you-like original with his own atmospheric electronics and tech-house influenced beats. The veteran German producer also provides a dub, which strips out the vocal and allows his electronics, Taylor's delicious guitars and the original's punchy horns a little more room to breathe.

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: The late Jorge Reyes was a leading figure in Mexican experimental music, and this album recorded with Antonio Zepeda is one of his earliest and most striking works. Originally released in 1986, A La Izquierda Del Colibri is a worldly product of the era in the same way as the work of Jah Wobble and Brian Eno, rich in new wave funk but reaching to a higher plane thanks to all manner of sonic devices. From treated jungle sounds to swooping pads, the whole album feels like an exotic trek through the heat and mystery of Central America, at times leaving the Western world far behind and at other times embracing it. A captivating listen.

Review: Here Brighton's Tru Thoughts present the latest offering from Brixton-based DJ/producer Kxngs. Drawing inspiration from his passion for exploring world cultures, his work has been heavily influenced by the musical sounds of South African house and Latin flavours, to Afrobeat, Kuduro and hip-hop. For "Air Sign", Kxngs' extensive cultural intuition has homed in on the recurring musical themes, rhythms and melodies found in Persian culture. This is particularly evident on opening track "Lifetime Celebration" while some hypnotically exotic percussion merges with grime sensibilities on "Purple Visions'. "Tarof" is sublime deep dubstep - by way of the Sahara.

Review: Throughout the course of their Digger's Workout series, Swiss combo Alma Negra has proved adept at blurring the boundaries between re-edits, remixes, and original productions. The same could be said about the sun-kissed global fusion of "Burkina Berlin", where wild vocal chants and dense percussion samples are craftily combined with heady piano motifs and a rock solid deep house beat. Rainer Truby and Corrado Bucci provide a deeper, hazier and subtly soulful interpretation that plays down the sampled beats in favour of far more tactile hits, before the Basel-based trio closes proceedings with "Algadez", a rare Persian treat built around exotic fiddle lines, humid flutes and their usual chunky percussion.

Review: We've noticed that it's always a special surprise from France's Versatile, and more so in the last few years since the label has truly began to diversify into countless genres, themes, and acoustic selections. This time we have a more worldly release from Gilb'R and the rest of the crew, one which sees the label boss team up with Abu Sayah and King Ghazi for "Houran", an Eastern meditative swarmer with a deeply mystical air running through its pipes. The dance aspect comes through the remixes: Gilb'R himself adds a bundle of drums and sequenced bass to the Middle-Eastern acoustics of "Shamaleh", Versatile veteran I:Cube spins "Houran" into a brooding techno slitherer, while SEX TAGS kingpin DJ SO-PHAT reinterprets the same tune under a much stringer dose of opiates. The uncredited dub version adds extra juice to an already sublime release. So very much recommended!

Review: Hellenic disco label Timewarp has been riding the boogie train for many years now, but when will a cut from label boss Angelos Stoumpos (aka Timewarp) ever arrive? Well now, that's when! Here he finally three jams, all connected by one common root - dub. Stoumpos is joined by half Greek/half French vocalist Georges Perin on opener, the fruity and fresh "Tropicaliente". Elsewhere, "Reggae On Dope" is thrilling mish-mash of gypsy rhythms and panpipe action and the smooth "Dub in Disco" is just that - hazy 4/4 spaced out grooves. There's even an instrumental version of the title track included to keep those headnodding vibes going.

Review: Whilst we wait for a new long player from Forge and Franck's Da Lata ensemble, we have a new version of their most recent record, Fabiola, featuring rare versions and remixes of the songs found on it. There's a whopping 17 tracks to get through, and highlights include the ghetto electro sleaze of "Um Amor A Mais (Funkee remix)", the shimmering reggae jazz of "Unknown (Marc Lee Brown mix) and the beguiling late night afro-house vibes of "The Shore (Toni Economides/Carl Smith remix)".

Review: This thirty eighth release by Resense is actually a split EP, divided between Switzerland's Bandura who fly in Trinidad's The Duke for their first 'calypso mash-up', "Calypso Invasion" and the label's own Sono Rhizmo who updates that cool 50s voodoo jazz sound on the appropriately named "Voodoo". Hot stuff!

Review: Musicians have it easy these days. Tala AM (pka Tala Andre Marie), was born in Cameroun in 1950. As a child he lost both parents and went blind before building his own guitar by hand in order to make music. He was discovered and brought to Paris where he was seen by James Brown, who immediately ripped off Hot Koki for his own Hustle. Tala sued him and won, enabling him to go on and make some of the most essential Afrofunk of the 70s. Here the track gets a official treatment, being sensitively remixed by a selection of cool producers including Jkriv, EMV128 and Ben Hauke.

Review: Africa Seven continue their rich vein of releases this year with an indepth exploration of the Tala A.M. discography. Those unfamiliar with the Cameroonian's story will be shaken by the adversity he lived through before going on to enjoy a successful music career; blindness and the death of both parents afflicted him as a child. However Tala Andre Marie's love of music was his guiding light, as was Cameroonian icon Manu Dibango who helped him relocate to Paris and thus began a recording career consisting of no less than 13 albums! African Funk Experimentals 1975 To 1978 sees Africa Seven dip into the Tala AM archives for a ten track presentation of his funkiest cuts during the early years of recording for the Fiesta label. "Hot Koki" is a particular treat, whilst disco selectors will love "Sugar Lump".

Review: 1971's Nande has been a digger's pearl for about three decades and it's no surprise given the original's near mythical status. It's important to rely that independent African recordings really are the stuff of legends, so this reissue from the ASB label is a fine touch, indeed! Previously out on the African Airways compilation, which has also become rarer by the year, we now have the single to play with, and the title track itself is one of those instantly danceable jewels with that hummable Afro bass. "Air Africa" is much funkier sort of affair, with sweet flutes circling high above sweet drum breaks and tropical guitar riffs. What a beauty, as always.

Review: Africa Seven is on fire recently, and this new compilation of rare and untapped material from Cameroon's Joseph Ekambi Tongo Mpondo has to be the pick of the lot! The talented multi-instrumentalist was famously studying medicine in Paris throughout he 60s, but it's clear that down the music path was the only sensible option for this man. African Funk Experimentals brings together some of his most obscure material from the years 1968-1982...and some new gear from 2017! Aside from the absolutely killer artwork featuring on the sleeve, this is a ten-track masterpiece, reaching all corners of the afrobeat heritage, while still retaining something very personal and symbolic of Cameroon's often underrated influence on African funk and boogie. Top marks all round.

Review: Awesome Tapes From Africa collaborate here with legendary South African pop artist "Om"Alec Khaoli, whose band Umoja recorded several records in the 1980s. Known for his prior work with Harari and the Beaters before, "Om" Alec created music across the genres of funk, rock, folk and disco during the course of his decades long reign as one of the most influential artists in the highly challenging (to put it mildly) apartheid-era music scene. The 707 EP was originally released in 1988 and features the addictive Afro synth-pop of "Money Money", while the lo-slung groove on the title track is particularly addictive and the vocoder is a nice touch!
