Catalog no.: DTWM0000001

Item ID: 490729

First release in Dig This Way's maxi 12" series in the form of an experimental highlife/boogie called 'Imo Special Release' which includes some gems taken from two wonderful and unknown LPs from the heart of the Igboland. Side A features Soki Ohale with his I.S.C.A.C. Band. The track is called 'Igbo Nwe Egwu' and it is a mix of highlife, boogie and electronic sound from 1986, sung in the Igbo language that shows a traditional village style melted together with a modern rhythm. It was pressed on a limited and raw LP sponsored by the Imo State Council for Art And Culture. Strongly recommended for a powerful and no-limit dance floor. Side B features La Bruno's 'Instant Reaction' and 'Instant Rap', an endearing disco boogie sound full of crazy synths. The original LP is literally impossible to be found, but Dig This way has been lucky to locate a clean copy during their second trip to Nigeria few years ago and were even more lucky to meet Mr. La Bruno himself just walking around Owerri, the capital of Imo State, located in the east side of Nigeria! The cover artwork is totally hand drawn by Greg Jata Illustration (France). The audio has been restored by Davide Bassi at Press Rewind Studio (Italy). Limited to 350 copies, pressed by Phonopress (Italy).
