(MP3 Podcast on www.ParisDJs.com) 2010-03-16

While legendary American bands like Shalamar, Atlantic Star and Change were scoring big hits in US R&B charts in the early 80s, numerous inspired outfits across the globe tried to immitate the popular synth/flap bass Boogie sound of that golden era of Soul music. Successful imitations saw the day in cities like London, Rio de Janeiro or Tokyo. Yet, until very recently, very few knew that a massive Boogie scene was also existing in a very improbable part of the world: Lagos, Nigeria. This selection is an attempt to introduce you to some of the lost treasures of the very respectable early 80s Nigerian Boogie scene. Enjoy!
