After the #1 World Music Charts Europe album Rise & Shine released in 2010, the Sierra Leone's Refugee All Stars have been collaborating with our friend DJ Logic on a remix album, Rise & Shine Remixed, and then went to famous roots reggae, soul & Afrobeat producer Victor Axelrod, aka Ticklah, keyboard player from Antibalas, Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings, Amy Winehouse, Easy Star All Stars and more… to produced their third and new album, Radio Salone, recorded at Menahan Street Band's Dunham Studios in Brooklyn. Those guys have taste! We played their massive afro-soca single Mother In Law in our latest afro mega-selection 21st Century Afro Spectacular Vol.2 but there's a lot more coming from this full-length Afro recording. As with all Ticklah productions, the sound is wide and spacey, clear as if the band was playing right on your own lawn, a feat rarely achieved these days in the 70s-influenced roots music scene. The grooves shift from soca to afrofunk, through reggae, zouk and highlife, making this album a sophisticated affair of purely refined 21st Century Afro-Carribean music.
