I created the name Lafayette Afro Rock Band. I had some experience in the domain and knew that we needed a complicated name in order for it to be registered. Anyway, I got the idea for this name using Lafayette Hudson’s first name the bassist of the group and called him explaining that there was now a group called the Lafayette Afro Rock Band. We made Soul Makossa, and Malik right after. The recordings of the Lafayette Afro Rock Band and Ice have been compiled on a new release, dropping October 28 on Manifesto Records.

Soul Jazz Records' new Nigeria Soul Fever is their first release to explore the vast wealth of Nigerian music recorded in the 1970s. The new album comes with introductory sleeve-notes by Bill Brewster (author of Last Night A DJ Saved My Life). Packed-full with Afro-Funk, Disco and Boogie all from Nigeria, this triple album/double CD set brings together a stunning collection of diverse West African sounds. Whilst a small handful of the artists featured (Joni Haastrup, Tee Mac, Christy Essien) have seen the light of day outside Africa, this is essentially a collection of killer tracks by an array of artists completely unknown outside of Nigeria.

Strut are proud to announce the first ever internationally released new studio album by one of the all-time legends of Nigerian music, Orlando Julius, in a mouth-watering new collaboration with London super-group The Heliocentrics. At his club residency in Ibadan, Orlando Julius was one of the very first to begin fusing US R&B with traditional highlife during the mid-‘60s with his Modern Aces band. His ‘Super Afro Soul’ album from ’66 set the blueprint for a whole generation of Afrobeat and Afro funk stars and, in an illustrious career, Julius met and played with Louis Armstrong, The Crusaders, Hugh Masekela and Lamont Dozier among others, famously co-composing the classic ‘Going Back To My Roots’ in 1979 whilst based in the USA.

Analog Africa was already in the process of digging heavily into the music scenes of Ghana's smaller neighbors, Benin and Togo, for a series of great comps. A meeting with Dick Essilfie-Bonzie, the owner of the long-defunct Essiebons Records, led Redjeb to a trove of old master tapes from the 1970s. The music on those tapes, most of which was originally recorded for PolyGram, comprises the bulk of this set, the latest in Redjeb's incredible run of Afro-funk retrospectives. Anyone who enjoyed Soundway's Ghana Soundz compilations from several years ago will love this as well, as it's filled with the distinctive funk sound of Ghana– heavy on the bright Vox organ, colored by highlife guitars, and anchored by grooves that are heavier than just about anything else. The few tracks by Togolese artists included here fit right into the sound (the artists all absorbed the Ghana sound during stints there).

The renewed popularity of Afrobeat in dance music has been well documented with a number of compilations exploring some of the many original Afro funk fusions that have influenced today’s music. Strut take the idea forward with a definitive look at funky Lagos during the 1970s over 3CDs and 3LPs.
The project digs deep into the Nigerian archives, highlighting funky rarities from established names Fela Kuti (from his early days to his later work with Africa 70), King Sunny Ade and Sir Victor Uwaifo. We also take a look at the wide variety of funky fusions spanning the full spectrum of Nigerian tribes and dialects from the Sly Stone funk of Segun Bucknor and the raw Ibo rhythms of The Funkees to the more Muslim-influenced Hausa language grooves of Bala Miller. The set comes with a fully edited documentary as the third CD featuring exclusive interviews with many of the key figures in Lagos at the time from King Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey to Ginger Baker, Roy Ayers, Fela and Femi Kuti.

Funk war der syncopierte Groove, der Mitte der Sechziger von James Brown oder Dyke & The Blazers eingeführt wurde. Es war eine natürliche Weiterentwicklung des Rhythm & Blues. Tausende Bands versuchten dem Erfolg James Browns nachzueifern und erschufen damit einen unendlichen Fundus an raren Singles und Albumtracks, der seit Jahrzehnten von DJs und Sammlern erforscht wird. Während diese 20 Tracks einen Tausende an Euros als Original kosten würden, ist das jedoch nicht der entscheidende Punkt hier, sondern die großartigen Grooves, die viele Funk-Fans nun erstmalig hören können. Die Compilation erscheint als eine von dreien, die ein Auge auf die afro-amerikanische Musikgeschichte durch die Brille der englischen Club-Kultur wirft. Zusammengestellt wurden sie vom DJ und ausgezeichneten Komplilierer Dean Rudland. Das beeindruckende Artwork stammt von seinen langjährigen Kollaborateuren The Unknown.

Genre: Funk, Soul, Disco | Label: LOA Records

Lack Of Afro has been pouring his shades of worldly funk and nu-soul across the Freestyle catalogue over the last few years, but this time it's his moment to shine with a brand-spanking, sparkly new LP for LOA, putting together everything he's known for under one gorgeous roof. Here, you have twelve scorching slices of upbeat lament, and from "Hello Baby" - a masterful stroke of sunny funk - to "Now I Feel Good", the artist manages to bring back the spirit of the 1970's into a new and contemporary light. Gliding piano keys, powerful vocals, and a kick-ass production surely make Lack Of Afro one of the kings of modern soul.
