    Analog synthesisers and raw psychedelic guitars join the mix yielding an unheard and unholy mixture of  Haitian voodoo rhythms, Afrobeat drumming and electronic textures. The album is inspired as much by Krautrock and Sun Ra as Lagos or Port-au-Prince. Flying on inspiration and adrenaline, this is roots music for the global future - Afro-Haitian Experimental Orchestra is lead by the great Tony Allen!

    Heads Funk BandHard WorldPMG

    One of the rarest albums to come out of Nigeria. Heads Funk Band is related to Akwassa, where both are two exceptional bands with the same members, but co-existed simultaneously featuring Felix Odey (Feladey) on guitar and Eddie Offeyi on drums. The original forming duo of Akwassa was Felix Day / Feladey (guitar, vocals) and Kevin Coburn (keyboards, synths, vocals), who collaborated with guest musicians, which later turned out to be the actual Heads Funk Band.

      Milton WrightSpaced (Reissue)Alston

      Rare second album from the guy behind the steppers anthem Keep it Up features his sought-after rubber-limbed indy funk dancefloor bomb Take a Break!

      Rare Miami soul and funk! Highly recommended!

      Rarely on eBay and extremely hard to find, Milton Wright's 2nd album 'Spaced' is an ultra-rare LP that soul and rare groove collectors often talk about - but never get to hear. Recorded by the same enigmatic soul singer who gave us the immortal club classic 'Keep it Up', the album 'Spaced' was overlooked by his record company and the public because it was released just as superstar status was dawning on fellow label mates KC & the Sunshine Band. Overshadowed by the ensuing fame of their sidekicks, the album was suspended in a commercial no man's land. Adding insult to injury, the piles of unsold copies were subsequently destroyed in a warehouse fire.

      A few copies escaped the flames, and a few intrepid collectors have managed to track them down. Those lucky enough to hear one have been astounded that such a quality album of beautiful, soulful music has been allowed to remain unheard and unloved for so long.

      The FunkeesNow I'm a ManPMG

      Has there ever been a band as aptly named as The Funkees? Formed after the Biafran War to raise spirits in the east, they quickly conquered the dance floors of Lagos and in 1973 headed to London, playing at Ronnie Scott’s and tearing up the local scene. Now I’m A Man captures the band at the height of their London-era pomp. Africans were making soca, West Indians were playing afro-funk and discolypso blasted from boom boxes across West London. The Funkees soaked it all up and delivered back, funkier, tighter and louder.

      Semi Colon Ndia Egbuo Ndia Comb & Razor Sound

      The Comb & Razor Sound label show off a very lavishly packaged double-disc Nigerian afro-rock masterpiece!  

      Recorded in 1978, Semi Colon was an experimental response to Fela Kuti's then-dominant afro-beat sound, substituting Fela's horn's and jazz leanings with wiry electronic guitars and a passion for vintage rock 'n' roll.  Reissued by the same label that bought us "Lagos Disco Inferno" and "Brand New Wayo" - extensive liner notes! The vinyl includes bonus 7" disc-featuring the never-before released 1975 demo recording "Our Fada" - Limited to first 1,000 copies
