This single features 2 of the greatest heroes of history of Mauritius Island Sega music and announces the second volume of the 'Soul Sega Sa!' compilation. Unique character and overexcited singer Roland Fatime (also known as Ti L'Afrique) begins his career on the Mauritian scene in the early '70s. Along with the group Features of Life, with Eric Nelson's saturated electric guitar and Raoul Lacariate's untamed rhythms, Fatime is going to spark a new raw, funky and explosive Sega style. His superb Sega-Blues lo-fi tune 'Bal Souki Souki' is reissued on this very 7" along with another nugget buried on the island. It's 'Soul Reggae Prisonnier' by Ramone, Ti l'Afrique's ex-rival! In the same blues and soul vein, this Sega immerses us in a dramatic story of judicial error and prison environment, which is unfortunately well too familiar with some Mauritian musicians!

EZUTE, GENERAL FRANCO-LEE -& HIS HARMONY INTERNATIONAL BAND- - ONYE KATIA-OBIA

The 1970s and 80s saw the rise of the Ukwuani style in Nigerian highlife. A funky fusion of the laidback, mellifluous guitar lines characteristic of Igbo highlife with the rugged, animated rhythm section of Edo dance music, the sound was a sensation that made stars of ... read more »

YIN YIN - THE RABBIT THAT HUNTS TIGERS

Where to place Yin Yin on the map? Maybe somewhere between The Netherlands and South East Asia, on an imaginary tropical island. That's where they brew a strange cocktail made of disco grooves, powerful "Thai beat" tunes and experimental tropi-synths. After two ... read more »

AMAMI - GIANT

AMAMI - GIANT

Amami are from Geneva and they'll blow your mind for sure. It seems very difficult to sum their sound, just somewhere between dub tape, Afrobeat and dancehall... like a lost gem of a retro-futurist soundtrack or a dusty trap song from outer space.

PIXVAE - PIXVAE

PIXVAE - PIXVAE

Like the hybrid peach palm from which it borrows its name, this unusual band is the result of cross origins, a space where warm melodies and the ambivalence of the Afro-Colombian music meets the energy of rock and eclectic jazz culture. Confronting the worlds, merging ... read more »

STACHES - PLACID FACES

STACHES - PLACID FACES

The Staches' brew is made up of solid punk, post-punk and garage influences. And these guys are not afraid to pour in some prog rock or psych either. 'Placid Faces' was recorded in San Francisco by Kelley Stoltz (Sub Pop/Third Man).

L'ECLAIR - SAUROPODA

L'ECLAIR - SAUROPODA

What can one expect of an album called 'Sauropoda'? Think of it as a 2am Youtube find. Or that weird looking Soviet prog funk LP reissue you never dared to buy. It actually sounds more like a L'Eclair show. Most of the album comes from deep jams the band road-tested ... read more »
