Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Nigerian music is known for its polyglot character, a fact that is exemplified by its native juju and highlife--a perfect storm of indigenous music traditions bolstered by Western technology. Lesser-known are Nigerian attempts to adopt Western music trends wholesale, as with the exquisitely rare disco and funk groups compiled for NIGERIA DISCO FUNK SPECIAL: THE SOUND OF THE UNDERGROUND LAGOS DANCEFLOOR 1974-1979. Taking obvious cues from stateside horn-driven funk ensembles like B.T. Express, Ohio Players and the J.B.'s, the propulsive dancefloor beats are punctuated by horn blasts and the scratchy, repetitive insistence of rhythm guitars--a sound with distinctive echoes of the ringing melodicism of highlife guitar sections. Highlights on this funky slice of Afro-disco include: Asikos's "Lagos City," an energetic blast of African brass, and Dr. Adolf Ahanotu's "Ijere," a slick, overdriven funk number done in a distinctly Nigerian style.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.103) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "The Afrobeat thunder is still strong on NIGERIA DISCO FUNK SPECIAL....T-Fire could be the Lagos branch of Clinton's P-Funk family."
