Alegria (12" + MP3 download code)

  3. Puxa (Beat Laden remix)
  4. Cuka (Maga Bo remix)
Review: Batida have been a key part of Soundway's successful 2012, debuting on a rather nice looking split 7"alongside A.J. Holmes & The Hackney Empire before unveiling their debut self titled album in March. For those who might have missed out on that wondrous long player, a welcome chance to indulge in the blend of traditional Angolan sounds and contemporary Kuduro is offered here with the Alegria 12". The record features three of our favourite album cuts extended and reworked by Batida creator Pedro Coquenao alongside Portuguese producer Beat Laden and Brazilian Maga Bo. The title track has instant appeal, with sampled guitar licks offering true heritage and bass heavy Kuduro rhythms providing real thump - it sounds even more joyous extended to over six minutes by Coquenao. Beat Laden's take on "Puxa" offers a curious dub heavy Portuguese slant on UK Garage aesthetics, whilst Mago Bo displays a dizzying understanding of polyrhythmic percussion on a delightful remix of "Cuka".

Review: Soundway fans should be more than familiar with Pedro Coquenao's Batida project, with the Lisbon-based Kuduro fusionist dropping a killer self-titled album on the label in 2012. Supplemented by several 12" releases, this has laid down the groundwork of a relationship between Coquenao and Soundway which was always likely to result in further releases, such as the album. Dois is a fourth Batida album overall and find Coquenao at his most confident, retaining the feel of previous albums but widening the stylistic remit, working with guests and utilising more live instrumentation. Afro house, benga, semba are thrown into the mix along with Kuduro, whilst Coquenao slips in the odd Clash sample as well as referencing his heritage with Angolan movies and afro-beat tracks plundered for usage.

Review: The Busy Twist run a really interesting operation... Inspired by the UK's bass movement, the London-based producers have recorded extensively in their native Ghana, giving this a truly international tongue. A fine case in point is Drumtalk's remix of the brilliantly titled "Auntie Fatty": riddled with all manner of chopped up chants and percussion, there's a very familiar riff on the drop. "Floor Excitement" is another highlight; the vocals are reminiscent of a Wookie plate but delivered with heartwarming gusto. Technically this is an EP... But with such a bounty of tropical treats, this is almost album material.

Review: Aljawal translates to 'the traveller'. A perfect name for such a far-reaching, explorative album from French beat conjurer Debruit and Sudanese singer Alsarah. A truly unique fusion of east-meets-west sonics, their collaborative creations are instantly distinctive as Debruit's off-kilter synth funk and bass brews are coated with the stunning cries and moans of Alsarah. Highlights include the delicate harmonies and shimmering synths of "Jibal Alnuba", the naked vocal beauty of "Loulia" and the boogie bass and dramatic strings and pipes of "Khartoum". Truly stunning... Happy travels.

Review: Evidently the alias of someone already established, you can forgive the diversionary tactics of East London's DrumTalk when the music he makes is of the standard shown on this killer Soundway 12". No stranger to the label having previously contributed a remix to The Busy Twist's excellent Friday Night EP, DrumTalk has also graced the likes of More Music, Sofrito and Huntleys & Palmers with his distinct brand of dancefloor output. A cross pollination of sounds derived from London, NYC, Detroit and Chicago blended with the polyrhythms of West Africa, it's not for nothing that DrumTalk often gets compared to Dan Snaith's Daphni. There's a confidence and diversity to the four productions that mark DrumTalk out as an established producer clearly looking to be judged on music alone and it's an impressive statement.

  1. Pass It On (part 1)
  2. Tomorrows Sun
Review: Yet another top release from the Soundway imprint, with the international disco and funk focus shifted to Guyana for the label's first 12 inch in over two years! Here they present two outstanding South American disco cuts from Eddie Hooper, more commonly known for his Soca output but on brilliantly soulful form here. "Pass It On" comes filled with warmth via the primitive synths and undulating Rhodes riffs that characterise the melody, whilst crisp insistent percussion and Hooper's distinctive vocals provide the life affirming drive. The flipside counterpart "Tomorrow's Sun" has end of night written all over it with a heavy reliance on organ dramatics, sparkling harp melodies and the hugging groove a perfect backdrop to Hooper's soothing tone.

Review: Los Miticos Del Ritmo is a seven piece band put together by British musician/producer/DJ Will' Quantic' Holland. Since 2007, Will has resided in Columbia and this band is assembled from Vallento & Cumbia musicians living in the tropical depths of Santiago de Cali. The obvious highlights on the album are mad cover versions of Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust" and Michael Jackson's "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough", which rock the dancefloor; even for those not familiar with the Accordion and cumbia rhythms. It's not just about cover versions however, as the album also displays decent original tracks such as "Willy's Merengue" and "Cumbia De Mochilla". Recorded entirely on 4-track tape, Will's approach has been to produce an album with the aesthetics of 1960s tropical recordings that might have been made in Colombia and the Caribbean, and to these ears he has nailed it.

  4. Gatanga Boys Band - "Tiga Kundega" (Hide & Smile edit)
Review: Prepping us for the Kenya Special compilation, here's a selection of the respectfully remixed highlights. Soundway have done all the research: it seems the Mbiri Young Stars and Kalambya Boys originals were way ahead of their time weighing in at five minutes plus and already oozing subs long before Batida and The Busy Twist got their edit-ready fingers on them. Elsewhere we find Frankie Francis adding a little extra oomph to the Congo rumba of "Mapenzi Hayana Daktari" and Hide And Smile adding a tribal urgency to the Benga drums on "Tiga Kundega".

  3. Africa Is Soul (8:54)
Review: Soundway come through with the goodness once more, offering up a fresh heavyweight reissue of Joe Mensah's Cry Laughter, an extremely rare document of Nigerian funk from the '70s. A rich mixture of poly-rhythmic afro-soul, jazz, highlife and afrobeat it has an undeniable Ghanaian flavour with Joe's arrangements, keyboard-playing and vocal style adding an extra sophistication to proceedings. This album, one of West Africa's very rarest, was recorded for the Decca label in Lagos and only ever released in tiny numbers in Nigeria in 1975. Two of the tracks previously featured on the Ghana Soundz compilation from Soundway but this is the first time it's been officially reissued in its entirety.

Working with like the decorated likes of Mark de Clive-Lowe, Alsarah Elgadi, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and Yared Teshale, Wondem traverses east Africa by way of the west coast with a rich collaborative vibrancy. Chapters in Story's sprawling, engaging narrative include the dust-kicking stomps and yearning twangs of "Be My Habesha", the timeless soul swoons and keyboard flurries of "Changamuka" and the liquid sunset of "Mowa". The final chapter "Yene Konjo" closes the book on a touching soulful note, leaving you hoping for another Story very soon.

Review: There's something admirably epic and far-sighted about Soundway's Ten Cities compilation, which draws together producers from five European Cities (Berlin, Bristol, Lisbon, Kiev and Naples) with instrumentalists, producers, rappers and vocalists from five African cities (Cairo, Johannesburg, Lagos, Luanda and Nairobi). With more than 50 artists involved across the 17 tracks, it takes a little time to sink in. It is, though, worth the effort, as this is global fusion and electronic cross-pollination on a colossal scale. From deep house-Afrobeat hybrids and techno-afro jazz-fusion, via kuduro, kwaito and hard-to-pigeonhole global hip-hop, Ten Cities is an eclectic, open-minded and groundbreaking delight.
