Electric Africa



extra extra! dailyleftover, as i start to enjoy'n this.
A very eclectic one that is ...
I had to play you'll some reggae tunes ..as most great African artist always putt some reggae tunes on their albums, that i rarely play but are as good as their funky stuff and contain also some great organ and synth work, i'd putt some behind each other ..before i had had to give it up for Julie Coker, the greatist voice of Africa. From there a wild track of Nguenang, Ivory Coast hottest find, first release on Musique Mondiale records that to me was only known for its Manding stuff >LISTEN TO THIS hot hot hot!
To celebrate the vinyl version of the African Pearls compilations that was running my ears already for a long time since Sterns putt these cd's in the world i'd thought lets spill some fuel for fire. As imho. the best tracks from that double cd of Electric Mali are finally scratched in black vinyl i putt my wallet up and now i am enjoying these on the decks.... i hope you will do the same!!

(sorry for the volume burst but that Idrissa Soumaoro tracks is so unbelievable good that i couldn't temper myself)

Tribute to William Onyeabor



hi there suckers! I dont have much to mention here, as you probably know whats up here. A tribute to the man from Enugu, Nigeria.
The name Enugu comes from the two Igbo words enu Ugwu, or Top of the hill. Known for many things but for us only counts a place that spawned some serious synth records as it was also the place of Goddy Oku's Godiac Studio. In companionship of a collection of synths like Moog and Elka, William Onyeabor created from end 70's a rare collection of tracks on his own Wilfims label that is unlike anything else coming from Africa or even the whole world at that time. Under the influence of plunky spacy lo-fi funk and some fine (never credited) female vocals William Onyeabor gave fans his moral advice and wisdom for a better tomorrow that never came.

Anything You Sow
One early morning, I went to pray to my God in Heaven
And I asked God why we are suffering so much in this world
My God said to me. "My son, listen well............
If you plant cassava, expect cassava during your harvest my son
If you sow yam, expect yam during your harvest my child
If you plant trouble, expect trouble during your harvest my son
If you sow goodness, expect goodness during your harvest my child"
Anything you sow.......... you will reap during harvest, my people.


Today Chief Onyeabor still lives in Enugu picking the keys once ina while for the love of god and still for a better tomorrow.
So here it is; Tribute to the King of Enugu.
