" For Those That Like To Groove, Part 34 "
God damn this compilation of scorchers (Brand New Wayo-Funk, Fast Times & Nigerian Boogie Badness) will put you in the right frame of mind....
Soul power, freak mode beats, and that special extra dash of African funk on deck...DONT SLEEP..
"Comb & Razor Sound launches its exploration of the colourful world of popular music from Nigeria, starting with the post-disco era of the late 1970s and early 80s.The years between 1979 and 1983 were Nigeria's Second Republic, when democracy finally returned after 23 years of uninterrupted military dictatorship. They were also the crest of Nigeria's oil boom, when surging crude prices made the country a land of plenty, prosperity and profligacy. The influx of petrodollars meant an expansion in industry, and the music industry in particular. Record companies upgraded their technology and cranked out a staggering level of output to an audience hungry for music to celebrate the country's prospective rise as global power of the future".
