Item ID: 459174

A great compilation can open the gate to another world. Who knew that some of the most exciting Afro-funk records of all time were actually made in the small West African country of Benin? Once Analog Africa released the first 'African Scream Contest' in 2008, the proof was there for all to hear; gut-busting yelps, lethally well-drilled horn sections and irresistibly insistent rhythms added up to a record that took you into its own space with the same electrifying sureness as any favourite blues or soul or funk or punk sampler you might care to mention. Ten years on, intrepid crate-digger Samy Ben Redjeb unveils another treasure trove of Vodoun-inspired Afrobeat heavy funk crossover greatness. Right from the laceratingly raw guitar fanfare which kicks off Les Sympathics' pile-driving opener, it's clear that 'African Scream Contest 2' is going to be every bit as joyous a voyage of discovery as its predecessor. Like every other Analog Africa release, 'African Scream Contest 2' is illuminated by meticulously researched text and effortlessly fashion-forward photography supplied by the artists themselves.
