Loik - Afro Diggin'

Loik - Afro Diggin'
(MP3 Podcast on www.parisdjs.com) Kraked, 2009-07-02

Africa is a wonderful song from Bob Pinodo, famous for bringing the gospel vibes to Ghana, a must in soulful breakbeat Afro vibes.

Osima - Waouh!! This is pure delight from Rex lawson, one of the fathers of Highlife, an instant classic to my ears, with amazing classy drumming and a haunting melody, this is a masterpiece no less!

Ise Owo
is Apala Soul and I want more!! A dancefloor bomb from the master of nigerian saxophone, Orlando Julius.

You Are The One
is a special crossover of Soul, Disco, Latin and Afrobeat with a strong statement. It could be an anthem on any afrogroovy dancefloor. Deep & catchy music from Tony Grey.

I fell in love with Show Me Your Love by the Opamanbuo International Band Of Ghana. With its haunting guitar licks and irresistible voice, it throws my blues away and makes me feel good. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I do.

All those are really rare records coming straight from Africa, so clicks and background noise are numerous, even with all the love we gave them. But all those songs need to be rediscovered, and often vinyl is the only testimony left. So let's hope you'll enjoy the ride - and don't worry there are more to come... (Loik)
