We keep the trend of posting dancefloor oriented material and this track is no exception. It’s a cover tune of a Loi Loki Tok song. And it’s a hard one; heavvy driving percussion with a neat chant, dirty wah-wah, fierce horns and a wicked synth riff. Released by Polydor East-Africa, judging from the Mijikenda tag on the label this is from the Coastal regent of Kenya, most possibly a Mombasa band. Major thanks to Rickard Masip of Tropical treats fame for this one.

Very cool. BTW, do you have anything to post by the actual (Santa) Loi Toki-Tok? The only thing I’ve heard by them is the great “Lakusema Mini Sina”, and I wonder if the rest of their stuff is like that. Thanks for the music.
No nothing by Loi-Toki-Tok, hopefully I’ll find something in the future and will be able to post it here .. thanks for the kind words!
I have Loi Toki-Tok 45s. I’ll send you some Fred.
thanks for sharing this, any chance you could upload Pt 2 as well?
