Afro7 presents Mombasa Roots… This 5-track EP features the group's synth excavations from the 80s: Karibishe, Mezea Tu (Lele Mama) and Kasha Langu. On the flip side both tracks from their late seventies private disco seven inch, What Is It That You Want and My Everything. Frank the Carvery has inserted new life in all tracks and mastered them loud for dancefloor action! EP comes in super deluxe cardboard jacket made in Thailand with silk screened coastal-inspired artwork made by California resident Steve Roden. This is the first time these tracks are being reissued. Limited release, one copy per customer. Read the story of the Band by Jumanne Thomas on the front page. Check soundclips below or via Soundcloud.

The Scorpios is a a London outfit combining new and old in a classic traditional setting. First contemporary release on our own in-house label. The full album is here! Package includes CD and Digital Download. Front artwork by Toronto's own A man called Warwick! Check snippets at Soundcloudor audio link below!


 

“Hailing from Central Sudan and now based in London after fleeing the fundamentalist takeover in that region, the Scorpios are a septet that melds Arabic rhythms and guitar chops (and a kind of swooning cyclical ecstasy) with a raw Eastern funk feel, properly dismantling cultural barriers in pursuit of a unifying rhythmic bliss. Heavy bass, synths, horns and percussions drive through traditional Sudanese forms to create a sound that owes as much to Detroit as it do to Khartoum” - Tusk

 

“The Scorpios translate Sudanese music from past decades into the now while maintaining a raw, unplugged sound.” - Thomas Gesthuizen (africanhiphop.com)

 
“Truly beautiful and hypnotic Sudanese sounds for the mind, body and soul. Clap your hands, tap your feet and then rewind.” - Rickard Masip (Tropical Treats)

Like a Cymande from Kenya.... super fresh from AFRO7    - Gilles Peterson BBC6 Worldwide
 
Fantastic new compilation of the Kenyan Afro-Rock group Black Savage, 9 tracks taken from one extremely rare LP and two singles 1975-78. Comes with digital download codes, colorful insert and CD with bonus tracks not available on the lp, liners written by Kenyan music journalist Emmanuel Mwendwa.
 
The Black Savage band came out of the Duke of York school in Nairobi, the group had prominent members like renowned world musician Job Seda (Ayub Ogada) they released one album on EMI East Africa in 1975 and three others singles, two in 76 and 78, and one in the early 80s. This LP (CD inside the jacket) is a compilation with half of the album and two of the singles. 
 
The music is somewhat rock hybrid with politically fueled lyrics and funky undertones and even folkloric at times, drawing influences from Deep Purple, Pink Floyd to Mandrill and Ohio Players - It’s a must listen!

            [post_title] => Mombasa Roots EP
            [post_excerpt] => We bring you the latest news from the Kenyan coast! Afro7 presents Mombasa Roots… This 5-track EP features the group's synth excavations from the 80s: Karibishe, Mezea Tu (Lele Mama) and Kasha Langu. On the flip side both tracks from their late seventies private disco seven inch, What Is It That You Want and My Everything. Frank the Carvery has inserted new life in all tracks and mastered them loud for dancefloor action! EP comes in super deluxe cardboard jacket made in Thailand with silk screened coastal-inspired artwork made by California resident Steve Roden. This is the first time these tracks are being reissued. Limited release, one copy per customer. Read the story of the Band by Jumanne Thomas on the front page. Check soundclips below or via Soundcloud.
