Karl Hector - Soul Sauvage d'Afrique Vol.2 - African 45s

Karl Hector Soul Sauvage d Afrique Vol 2

Following up on his march 2011 'Soul Sauvage d'Afrique' mix, Karl Hector is back with a second volume, prepared with a choice selection of African 45s! Who is Karl Hector? He's one of the mysterious figures behind the Poets Of Rhythm collective (catch their anthology out next month on Daptone!), a regular Paris DJs guest who's always coming back with tasty selections of VERY rare stuff to share. His previous Afro mix was one of the most downloaded of its year, and this one should please our listeners too, packed with 72 minutes of hard to find African seven inches, specially picked from the personal collection of Karl Hector.
