Number two in the series of tropical treats from Sofrito! -

Back in press, thankfully!

Uncovering the sounds of Benin City in western Nigeria, the Sofrito label launch two heavy jabs at the disco with Frankie Francis (Sofrito) and none other than Simbad (Raw Fusion / Brownswood) at the controls for two heavy edits of these infectious afro-rhythms.

"Victor Uwaifo’s early ‘80s psychedelic masterpiece ‘Ohue’ is brought down to the bare bones to produce a seriously heavy dancefloor beast – loping synths, deep bass and a heavy beat combine to produce a track that takes in dubby disco and pure Nigerian sounds and defies categorization…

For the flip, Sonny Okosun’s afrobeat classic ‘Odenigbo’ is smartened up for the dancefloor into a take-no-prisoners club workout for the Tropical Djs and rhythm enthusiasts"
Pure, undeniable rhythm - love it!
