  2. Music (5:55)
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: 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.

Funk
Review: Former DJ Shadow collaborators The Heliocentrics have always been tricky to pin down. While much of their work feels inspired by the outer-space ethos of Sun Ra and the hazy heaviness of late 1960s psychedelia, it also draws on such disparate influences as hip-hop, krautrock, cinematic soundtracks and musique concrete. Now with a new vocalist in tow - young Slovenian chanteuse Barbara Patkova - the East London based combo delivers a fourth full-length that retains their ability to simultaneously surprise and impress. Throughout, they rely heavily on their seemingly innate ability to turn improvisations into cosmic musical gold, along the way delivering what may well be their strongest album to date.

Review: Contemporary afro funk wizardry abounds as London-based band Ibibio Sound Machine don a pair of disco, funk and boogie spectacles and study their Nigerian roots with attention to detail. The end result is a truly unique fusion of sounds that range from the 80s synth boogie of "The Talking Fish" to the Fela-level freneticisms of "I'm Running". Other highlights include the slamming pop jitters of "Let's Dance", the crazed synth squiggles and slap bass madness of "The Tortoise" and the alluring juxtaposition of modern drum production, captivating poetry and jazzy dynamics of "Prodigal Son". A highly accomplished debut... This needs your attention.

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".

Review: Jeremie Moussaid Kerouanton, simply known as iZem around our circles, is a new face on the downtempo scene, and one which we'd very much like to see more of. Luckily, he's returned with his debut album, and it's on the incorrigible Soundway label; we probably mention it often, but it is one of our meccas when it comes to the leftfield end of the spectrum. This is a proper album and, by that, we don't mean that it sounds good and that every track is amazing; we mean that it works as one single body of music, a real 360 degree view of iZem's point of view. The tracks are as varied as the sounds in them, and from Eastern vocals to improvisational tribalism and subtle waves of deep house, we feel that this is the sort of LP that'll appeal to many different sorts of collectors. The house-heads will like it for its sensibility to other genres of music, the balearic fiends will find it naturally welcoming, and the folk fans will find plenty of inspiration. Don't miss out on this, it's a keeper.

Review: Over the course of the last decade, dub-soaked musical fusionist Lord Echo has delivered a string of fine releases, including two top-notch albums. Given his fine track record, it's perhaps unsurprising that Soundway has snapped up the Kiwi producer's third full-length excursion, Harmonies. It features contributions from a posse of guest collaborators - Tony Laing of Fat Freddy's Drop and regular studio buddy Mara TK included - and giddily infuses reggae and rocksteady with disco, Afro-soul, Afro-funk, Afro-beat, spiritual jazz and, more surprisingly, techno. It's a hugely vibrant and entertaining set, all told, offering a good balance between dancefloor vibrations and more laidback concoctions.

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.

Review: Soundway's debut Sierra Leone exploration introduces us to Muyei Power who toured their country (and, on occasion, the US) throughout much of the 70s. With only a handful of 45s recorded, their sound has been largely unheard for the last 30/40 years. Until now. Complete with detailed liner notes and artwork, this album is a fantastic document. More importantly, it sounds fantastic: stretching from the more western influenced funk dynamic of "Bi Loko" to the frenetic percussive fusion of "Be Patient" via the smoky, mournful horns on the folky "Ben Ben Bee" there's a unique sound that resonates with everything else you know and love about African music during the ever-fertile 70s, yet rings and stamps with a life of its own.

Review: Back in 2012, Will "Quantic" Holland joined forces with Colombian musician Mario Galeano to form Ondatropica. The eponymous debut album that followed was quietly impressive, fusing traditional South American styles - cumbia, champeta etc. - with elements of hip-hop and funk, with the assistance of musicians from the vibrant Colombian scene. For this belated follow-up, the duo has tweaked the formula slightly, incorporating more from the Caribbean and African influences that have seeped into the music made around Bogota and Old Providence Island. While the palette of influences made be broader, the resultant music is every bit as enjoyable and entertaining as that found on its predecessor.

Review: Soundway surpass themselves again with this wonderful reissue from the Ghanaian artist Rob, who released two albums back in 1977 for the West African Essiebons label. Rob was a seasoned musician in the 70?s, having recorded and toured with many well known bands. The album is a somewhat Spartan, brooding affair where less is most definitely more as slow burning, hip swaying cosmic funk drenched compositions are offset by wonderful punchy brass arrangements. A slow burning pulse is present throughout with highlights being ''Loose up Yourself'' and the irreplaceable carnal conquest anthem '' Make it Fast, Make it Slow''. Songs of celebration sit alongside other pieces of introspection and socially conscious topics; some might criticise the odd duff notes and occasional raw vocal edge, but this just adds texture to the overall performance and vibe. Without question one of the best reissues of 2012.

Review: LA industry insider Dexter follows his 2012 debut Seasons with a deeply personal love letter to Ethiopia. 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: 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: 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: Way back in 2002, Soundway Records announced their arrival with a fine collection of Ghanaian funk and Afro-beat delights. Since then, the vinyl edition of Ghana Soundz has become a sought-after item online, prompting Soundway to put together this welcome reissue. It contains a wealth of sought-after fare, from the heavyweight Afro-funk of Marijata's "Mother Africa" and percussive Afro-beat brilliance of Gyedo Blay Ambolley & The Steneboofs' "Simigwado", to the Africa '70 style shuffle and chated vocals of The Ogyatanaa Showband's, via the hot-to-trot high-life thrills of "Self Reliance" by The African Brothers. While other labels have since showcased the effervescent of the Ghanaian scene during the 1970s, few compilations have hit the spot quite like Ghana Soundz.

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.
