A new label from Hugo Mendez, co-founder of Sofrito! 

A series dedicated to cross-cultural experimentation, kicking off with this exhilarating dive into the African underground of 1980s Paris - a four-track EP from Congolese singer Albert Siassia, backed by a group of young French dreads, rechristened Tokobina. A mixture of post-punk, rumba, afro-disco and reggae, in two dancefloor sureshots reviving their sole 12” from back in the day, plus previously unreleased fire from the same session! Essential release!
