Miles Cleret - Nigerian Rock

Miles Cleret Nigerian Rock

The worldwide 70s Afro revival in music has to be credited first of all to a few diggers and record collectors, who have ignited a flame all over the world that should be burning for many years. Miles Cleret is one of them, he launched the Soundway Records label 10 years ago whose influence cannot be denied (check our article). We wanted to celebrate this anniversary in a special way, with 4 exclusive mixes to be aired in the coming weeks on our podcast, starting with this Nigerian Rock selection by Miles himself. Mixes from Batida, Chris Menist and Quantic are to follow in the next weeks... So happy 10 years to Soundway Records and let's hope it'll last at least another 10 years!
