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 LP 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 LP 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: Sidiku is an impressive gentleman. A Ghanaian athlete turned musician with over 16 albums to his name he shook his country's music industry up as the chairman of the Ghanaian Copyright Society and now president of the Musicians Union of Ghana and the vice president of International Federation Of Musicians. He can also lay down a mean hook; "Anokwar (Truth)" is a firing slice of late 70s synth-infused afrofunk while "Music" comes a little later in the 80s with its rapid synth boogie groove and big Fanti chants. Righteous.

Review: Bouncing his time between Antibalas and his Marcos Garcia and Chico Mann projects, Chico returns after several years of silence with a sweet slice of lolloping broken soul. With its soft padded synths and cotton wool hug of Kendra Morris's vocals, there's a delicate tumble to proceedings as we nod and slide into a sound that's remained in its own soul universe since emerging almost 20 years ago. When done as well and with as much authenticity as this, it's timeless.

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.

Review: An incandescent sonic spectacle drawing on both members and influences from the stratosphere via Dubai and South-East London, Flamingods have set themselves apart from most else which surrounds them with a rhythmically driven sound informed by both hedonistic fury and wide-eyed abandon. 'Majesty' is the band's most concise and focused effort to date, without losing the intensity and extra-dimensional flourishes by which they've made their name. Kicking their sound into space like a pop-tinged version of Boredoms or an Animal Collective without the dippy self-indulgence, Flamingods here set their stall out as modern technicolour psychonauts to be reckoned with.

Yet more mysterious than ever, they've somehow crafted a manner in which to be both more adventurous and more focused on this second effort, arriving at something akin to a tastefully disorientating dream sequence on a glorious psychic wavelength somewhere between high-energy Brazilian carnival and the nameless void.

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: Odion Iruoje aka Sound President was one of Nigeria's top producers in the 1970s and early '80s, but his solo recording career was restricted to just the one release, Down To Earth. Originally released on Iruoje's own label, Odion Ltd, in 1983, it was only ever distributed in small quantities and Soundway Records have given this much needed re-issue. Iruoje is known for having signed the legendary Fela Kuti to major label EMI and acting as his producer throughout the early '70s. Starting out with the proto funk rap cut "Identify With Your Root (Which One You De?)", there's some killer West African boogie-funk-soulfulness on "Ikebe" and some feel good disco vibes; Lagos style on "Love Care".

  4. Just Do You (instrumental)
Review: Soundway has high hopes for the third album by "underground super-producer" Lord Echo. That set is due to appear in early 2017, and as a taster, they've decided to drop this fine single. "Just Do You" features the vocals of Mara TK of Electric Wire Hustle fame, and is a deliciously cheery chunk of Caribbean inspired dub disco indulgence. It's accompanied by a fine Dub - which, naturally, features more tape delay and a tougher, stripped back groove - and an instrumental version. There's also a bonus cut in the shape of "Only You", which features regular Lord Echo collaborator Toby Laing, best known as a member of globe-trotting Kiwi supergroup Fat Freddy's Drop.

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.

Review: Chico Mann and Kendra Morris combine sublimely on the Same Old Clown 12" through Soundway which is a thrilling taster of what's to come on Magical Thinking, the multi instrumentalist's third solo LP. Whilst the Antibalas guitarist has remained close to his Afrobeat roots on previous long players for Wax Poetics and Kindred Spirits, his new album is said to offer a more expansive portrayal of Chico's tastes taking in latin, freestyle, funk and boogie and "Same Old Clown" certainly suggests this is a rewarding approach. Mann's classic squelching 80s electro funk arrangement is the perfect backdrop for Kendra's slinky vocals and the accompanying remixes from Linkwood and Kon only serve to show her range, with the Firecracker man's boogie house update our personal favourite here at Juno.

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: With so many archival labels putting out compilations of 1970s Nigerian funk and disco, Soundway has decided to change tack. Doing It In Lagos is a primer on the country's lesser-celebrated 1980s boogie scene. According to the superb liner notes, most of the music on show here - and, yes, it's universally brilliant - was created by a younger generation of musicians who wanted to move away from Afrobeat, and further towards an authentically American style electrofunk sound. As a result, many of the tracks featured on Doing It In Lagos - not least Hotline's brilliant opener, Livy Ekemezie's disco-funk slammer "Holiday Action" and Sonny Enang's superb "Don't Stop That Music" - are every bit as special as the American-produced records they were trying to emulate.

Review: Having explored the rich heritage of Nigeria and Ghana with well researched vigour, Soundway turn to Kenya for their next adventure... A rare insight: while Lagos was churning out seminal Afrobeat compositions, Kenya took to western influences in a much subtler fashion. With heavy emphasis on the Kenyan benga and Afro-Cuban rumba there's a much deeper, local folk presentation and format throughout most of the selection. Complete with detailed notes and beautiful presentation (like all Soundway compendiums) this won't look out of place in any collection.

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.

Review: On its release in 2013, Soundway's Kenya Special compilation was praised for shining a light on the previously overlooked East African music scene of the '70s and '80s. The collection's real genius was the way in which it highlighted the 'anything goes' essence of the Kenyan sound during the period. This aspect is once again extensively explored on Kenya Special Volume 2. While there are plenty of tracks inspired by soul, funk, highlife, afrobeat, juju and disco, for starters, you'll also find cuts that sound more obviously influenced by South African pop, local percussion workouts, U.S electrofunk (see the fantastic "Hinde" by African Vibration), and snaking Middle Eastern jazz (Mac & Party's "Harambe"). Throughout, the quality of the previously unheard music is immaculate.

Review: Soundway offer us a new compilation featuring 20 rare tracks from the currently much talked about world of Nigerian pop music; a zeitgeist of their early 1980s club culture. The country's economy was booming at the time and so was its recording industry. Strongly influenced by '70s disco and funk, this new generation were, as the liner notes explain "Eager to sound as American as possible with no hint of the fervour for afro-beat, afro-rock and afrocentric thinking that the 1970s had thrown up". The original albums that many of these singles came from go for exorbitant prices online, so here's a chance to snap up some of the periods finest music, remastered across three 12"s.
