Item ID: 403114

Repress! A special summer tribute double A-Side 12-inch with two tracks from African musicians that both passed away at the end of 2013 and start of 2014. Both tracks are perfect smooth summer tropical DJ fodder for the dancefloor. On the first side South African singer Shaluza Max's massive 'Mashkandi' house anthem from 2002 gets a first release on vinyl. This track was a huge hit in South Africa and around the world on its initial release. With a soaring Zulu vocal and big sound it's a fitting reminder of a very talented musician, producer, composer and arranger who died tragically young at the age of 47 in January of 2014. On the flip you'll find a fairly unknown track from the mid 1980s, recorded by one of the biggest names in African music, Tabu Ley Rochereau. With a kind of almost Balearic proto-house Congolese pop cut with drum machines, and trademark sweet Congo horn section, 'Hafi Deo' is a beautiful track that fell into obscurity by perhaps being too smooth for the world music crowd in the mid '80s. Tabu Ley passed away in November 2013 in his late '70s with over 250 albums and some 3.000 songs to his name. A true pioneer of the Congolese soukous sound, he was also one of the most influential African musicians of his generation.
