Nigeria Disco Funk Special: The Sound of the Underground Lagos Dancefloor 1974-79

A 9 track funk album (52m 9s) — released May 12th 2008 on Soundway Records Ltd
• Lagos, Nigeria, 1974-79: The Funk & Disco capital of West Africa. More nightclubs, bars, spots and dance-floors than any place along the coast from Dakar all the way to Kinshasa. • Nigeria Disco Funk Special is an amazing collection of heavy dancefloor grooves from urban Lagos in the '70s – hot and driving slices of Funk, Disco and Boogie that show just how vibrant the music scene was in one of West Africa's most populous and culturally diverse cities. • In the '70s, it wasn't just James Brown who influenced the musicians playing in the nightspots of Lagos – the loose-structured and elongated jams that he was pioneering in America had been a part of Nigerian music much longer than that. This album is the sound of Cuban-heeled and Micro-minied Lagos youth soaking up the sound of the American discotheque and putting their own inimitable twist on the proceedings. Sweet Jesus, this is some funky shit. Asiko Rock Group's "Lagos City" simply destroys, while Dr. Adolf Aonotu's "Ijere" twists your gourd. 9.5 /10 (Montreal Mirror)
