Diablos Del Ritmo – Part 1 [coll] – [Analog Africa]
Between 2007 and 2012, Samy Ben Redjeb managed to meet the right folks in Colombia to obtain the best of its 1970’s music by offering trades for African vinyl. (He found out that African music had been very popular with DJs in coastal towns.) This is the first of planned group of Analog Africa’s releases for the best tracks, especially those that show an African influence. A mixture of African and South American beats – who can tell where one leaves off and the other begins – are dominant in the percussion section. Most tracks have vocals, some have backup choruses, and all feature great instrumentals such as organ, trumpet, clarinet, etc.
