Review: This latest reissue from Awesome Tapes From Africa is the whole reason for founder Brian Shimkovitz starting the blog and the label that grew out of it. Some 13 years ago, Shimkovitz stumbled across a cassette copy of Obaa Sima whilst travelling Ghana and his love for Ata Kak's music lead to the foundation of the Awesome Tapes From Africa blog and the commencement of a long running effort to track down the Ghanaian musician. Some four years after ATFA became a label, Shimkovitz finally tracked down the musician, real name Yaw Atta-Owusu, and was granted permission to reissue Obaa Sima, using the second hand tape purchased in Ghana as the source. The seven tracks on this LP are a winning tinny combination of highlife, rap, pop, and more with "Daa Nyinaa" sounding like a cover version of William De Vaughn's "Be Thankful For What You've Got".

Review: Awesome Tapes From Africa surely scored one of the best reissues this year with the vinyl and CD edition of Obaa Sima, a quite startling album from Ghanaian musician Ata Kak that covered highlife, rap, pop, and more. The fact the discovery of the original tape was ATFA founder's Brian Shimkovitz original reason for starting the label made it all the more special. With copies of that album no longer in press, Awesome Tapes From Africa have tempered demand with a series of 12" releases featuring cuts from Obaa Sima. Here the title track makes the transition, pressed nice and loud at 45rpm (do try it at 33 too for a different vibe), whilst the slower electro funk-edged bliss of "Adagya" lines the B-side.

Review: A slice of Senegalese history... Aby Ngana Diop's only album was the country's first commercial album to feature a traditional female tassukat. It took Awesome Tapes From Africa several years to track down the late artist's family but they've finally done it and can now unleash this for everyone's pleasure. Ranging from the classic drum samples of opener "Dieuleul-Dieuleul" to the more traditional mbalax dynamics of the album's title track, this is a captivating and unique listen from start to finish. As usual superbn stuff by Awesome Tapes From Africa.

Review: Ghanaian producer DJ Katapila laid down this truly unique document in 2009. Now reissued on Awesome Tapes From Africa, Trotro takes us on a crazy trip around his country's traditional ga music by way of 808s and 909s. The result is a fast-paced, linear, stripped back trip that oozes character, fun, funk and some really off-the-cuff moments of madness like the pitched-up vocal twists on "Zoomlion" and his own staccato vocal drama on "Cocoawra". One of a kind.

Review: As a member of several chart-topping groups and an in-demand producer in his own right, Thami Mdluli was something of a superstar on South Africa's "bubblegum" scene during the 1980s. Yet as the decade progressed, it was for his club-focused instrumentals - released under the Professor Rhythm alias - that he became most celebrated. By the time this album was first released in 1995, he'd helped to develop the now celebrated "Kwaito" style of house-influenced South African dancefloor fusion. Bafana Bafana does contain some distinctive kwaito moments, but for the most part it just sounds like a gloriously South African take on mid 1990s U.S, Italian and British house music. Crucially, it's also superb, like some long lost '90s house album made in Jo'burg, rather than New Jersey.

Review: Ghanaian virtuoso SK Kakraba is a master of his craft in every sense; one of the country's foremost gyil players and makers, he literally carves every sound you hear on this unique album. A member of the xylophone family, the gyil's distinctive buzzing sound is created by covering the instrument's holes with spider web silk giving it a captivating sound like no other instrument. The first time Awesome Tapes From Africa has commissioned and released a brand new recording, each of these songs are recorded live, played solo and guaranteed to spirit your attention away from any sense of mundanity or preoccupation. Beautiful.
