The Apostles were disciples of a heavy kind of psychedelic soul/rock fusion. After The Funkees left for London, they stepped into the breach to become the champions of East Nigeria's flourishing post-war music scene. This album from 1976, containing a heavy mix of wailing guitar, swirling organ and James Brown-style vocals, became a fixture in every East Nigerian home.

Also available: THE APOSTLES (LP).

CLETIN, BENIS - JUNGLE MAGIC

CLETIN, BENIS - JUNGLE MAGIC

Considered an acid boogie classic, 'Jungle Magic' is a cosmic transmission from the early days of Nigerian disco. The bass lines are lethal. The synths are fat and squelchy. And the groove is non-stop and primal. Channeling the jungle gods of funk and introducing them to ... read more »

 

OFFIA, DANNY -& THE FRIKS- - FUNK WITH ME

Danny Offia's 'Funk With Me' is a prime slab of Nigerian boogie. Sinewy and urbane, it's the soundtrack of Lagos in the early eighties. The city was awash with oil money, clubs were booming and every night was a party night - the perfect place for a man with a great voice, ... read more »

 

DANDY, TREVOR - DON'T CRY LITTLE TREE

DANDY, TREVOR - DON'T CRY LITTLE TREE

A gentle album full of consoling tunes, more or less in the vein of Cat Stevens' 'Morning Has Broken', but with a bit more soul (although this association might be caused by the insistent use of piano on this record). This ultra-rare pearl of funky gospel music was the ... read more »

KELENKYE BAND - MOVING WORLD

KELENKYE BAND - MOVING WORLD

Reissued on CD, 1974's 'Moving World' is a holy grail of Ghanaian groove alchemy. The title track and 'Brotherhood Of Man' are hard, grinding funk outings, while 'Jungle Music' has a more soulful groove. There's also a bit of reggae in 'Dracula Dance' and old-skool highlife ... read more »
