ATAMINA- Sycophantic Friends - LP - MAKKUM RECORDS / RED WIG

click to enlarge Another discovery from Ghana#s Kologo music scene, and Atamina is one of its most radically socio-critical and political protagonists. He had already a collaborative track with KING AYISOBA on "This Is Kologo Power!", and one of his songs was featured as well on MOJO magazines "Revolution Blues" compilation. Stripped-down hypnotic beats and obnoxious rants. https://atamina.bandcamp.com/releases

KING AYISOBA- Modern Ghanaians - LP - MAKKUM RECORDS

click to enlarge Another outstanding release on Arnold de Boers (ZEA/THE EX) label! A selection of the best songs by KING AYISOBA, previously released on cassettes and CDs, for the first time ever on vinyl! KING AYISOBA is a star in Ghana, but almost unknown in Europe, and the idea for this album came when touring Europe together with ZEA in 2012. Mixing Ghanaian music, played with traditional instruments, with modern elements (like Hip Hop and Dancehall) and electronic beats, bleeps and basses, it's a great document of African traditions being confronted with the influences of western civilization and resulting in new lifestyles. http://www.makkumrecords.nl/mr8.html

PRINCE BUJU- We Are In The War - LP - MAKKUM RECORDS / RED WIG

click to enlarge Prince Buju from Ghana is singing and playing the Kologo, a primitively made lute-guitar. His music is stripped-down, raw and direct, energetic and intense. It's not Punk-Rock, but it's Punk... Really interesting and impressive! If you like KING AYISOBA, you'll love this one as well! http://princebuju.bandcamp.com/releases

ZEA- Split with OSCAR JAN HOOGLAND - 7" - MAKKUM RECORDS

click to enlarge Limited split-single featuring a joyfully swinging and bouncing ditty called "Exploding Head Syndrome" from ZEA. A catchy pop-tune with guitar, electronis, and vocals, and it's almost a Dancefloor smasher! On the B-side "Electric Clavichord" is an experminental noise-track recorded by Oscar Jan Hoogland with (as the title suggests) an electric clavichord. http://zeamusic.bandcamp.com/album/zea-oscar-jan-hoogland-split-7
