Review: Following Hot Casa's reissue of his second album The Black Isaiah Of Africa in 2017, here comes the long awaited repress of Kingsley Aigbologa Bucknor's incredible debut album. Rarer than hen's teeth, known to pass hands for triple figures and so vibrantly freeform and longform; both extensive 15+ minute tracks take up a side each as Kings and his 16 player / 10 backing singer Afrodisk Beat 79 troupe lay down two crisp Afrofunk trips. Singular.

Review: Hot Casa's latest deluxe reissue should delight all those who enjoy Afro-funk fusion from the early 1980s. It comes from Togolese artist Itadi K Bonney and is thoroughly obscure even by Afro reissue standards (if you can find an original copy for sale, it will cost you the best part of L900). Bonney and his backing band recorded and released it in 1983, filling the album with rich political soul, William Onyeabor style Moog motifs and thrillingly loose fusions of U.S funk, boogie and contemporaneous African dancefloor styles. This edition not only comes with an insert containing a rare interview with the now sadly departed singer, but also two previously unreleased tracks. In other words, it should be an essential purchase.

  2. Fontaine (Drink Drink) (4:04)
Review: DjeuhDjoah and Lieutenant Nicholson are French composers and Afro-soul singers whose 2016 album on Hot Casa is a perfect summer soundtrack. This cheeky 7" actually features two of the standout tunes from their equally essential 2019 album Aimez Ces Aires. 'El Nino' is a a real summer classic, with falsetto vocals singing about how hot it is with big horn leads and funky drums getting that party started. 'Fontaine (Drink Drink)' is a deeper cut with xylophone sounds, hand claps and a warm, organic feel that is again set to get temperatures rising this summer.

Review: Florian Pelissier is a jazz pianist and band leader from France who now serves up his fifth studio album. It was recorded at the legendary jazz institution, the Rudy Van Gelder Studio, and sits right up there with some of the studio's best recent project. Each piece is accessible and airy, with lilting rhythms and dancing keys backed up by fine horns and expressive sax work. Pelissier's expressive piano is a key feature on many pieces, such as the wildly intoxicating 'Life At The Vanguard' and swinging number 'Baron Samedi' which is ripe for the dance floor.

Togo Soul 70: Edits & Rarities

  2. Roger Damawuzan - "Loxo Nye" (Pushin Wood remix) (5:39)
  3. Napo De Mi Amor - "Cacatchoule "Berceuse Bassari"" (3:04)
  4. Sewavi Jacintho - "Miade Dua" (5:35)
Review: Hot Casa's latest must-have release is a veritable smorgasbord of Togolese treats. It focuses specifically on obscure soul music made in Togo in the 1970s, with two hard-to-find original cuts being joined by two contemporary re-edits of similarly obscure classics. The EP opens with Bosq's smooth, dancefloor-focused tweal of Yta Jourias's breezy, horn-heavy tropical soul workout "Adome Nyueto", before Pushin Wood takes over and adds a little contemporary electronic bounce - and some particularly colourful synths - to Roger Damawuzan's "Loxo Nye". Over on side B, Napo De Mi Amor's "Cacatchoule Berceuse Bassari" is a fuzzy soul shuffler rich in bright, Juju style guitar solos, hazy vocals and Hammond organ stabs, while Sewavi Jacintho's "Miade Dua" is a sweatier and heavier concoction powered by loose-limbed drumming and sun-kissed instrumentation.

Review: K. Frimpong & His Cubano Fiestas was a cult and rotating cast of musicians from Ghana. They were early champions of the famous highlife sound and in 1980 they put out Me Da A ?nnda, a four track suite that will cost you a hefty amount on second hand markets. But this reissue will change all that. The original tracks and art are included and it is the charming percussive clatter and seductive guitar lines of 'Daben Ni' that get things underway with plenty of trademark horns. 'Me Yee Owu Den' is another sweet jam, with tangy rhythms and those lead horns lifting your spirits before the extended 'Nye Mea' works you into a spaced out mind state.

He studied flute and latin arrangements in Cuba during the 60's & became orchestra leader for the national ivorian tv in Abidjan in the mid seventies, toured all over the world with the famous Africando band.

Review: Hot Casa's latest deep dive into the Afro-funk archives takes us to the Democratic Republic of Congo at the turn of the 1970s. It was here, in a nation brimming with post-independence confidence, that a funk band called The Soul Kids briefly burned brightly. This reissue of their impossible to find debut album should be essential listening for anyone interested in West African funk. It contains a mixture of sizzling self-penned instrumentals and inspired cover versions of American funk standards, including a memorable take on Wilson Pickett's cover of Beatles classic "Hey Jude" and two fantastic versions of James Brown's "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag".

Review: This is a glorious example of the highlife sound with some extra digital funky touches that really make it pop. The Ghanian producer Frimpong Manso is the man who made it so when it was recorded back in 1987 at the Ghana Films Studio in Accra. The title Boafo Ne Nyame can be translated as "Helper is god" and the super sweet voice of K. Adusei is the lead vocalist who helps lodge these tunes deep in your soul. Each of the five tracks goes long and is filled with hypnotic hi-life grooves, deeply funky guitar licks that bring plenty to each tune, and tight drumming that oils the whole affair nicely.

Review: Selected rare Togolese recordings featured here from between 1971 to 1981. According to label Hot Casa, finding these tracks and their rights holders was quite the task, involving numerous trips all over the west African country bordered by Ghana , Benin and Burkina Faso. They have selected 13 tracks, which they've charmingly described as 'a snapshot of some hundreds of rare and often forgotten tapes from the most prolific, professional and exciting phase of the country's recording history'. Highlights on this compilation not limited to: Akofa Akoussah's sultry and bittersweet crooning on "I Tcho Tchass", the life affirming Afrobeat vibes of Aime Orchis Mathey's very obscure "Tralala Vo Dou" and of course the very funky and groovy hoedown that is Adamah & Agbote's "Dzo Le Gbo Nye" .

  3. On Se Pousse (6:29)
Review: "On Se Pousse", a mazy chunk of life-affirming Afrobeat with Sengalese influences, was one of the standout highlights of Vadou Game's 2016 album, Kidayo. Here it gets a deserved single release, with the near perfect original being complimented by two reworks by Osunlade under the Yoruba Soul guise. On the A-side you'll find his main remix, a loose, warm and organic interpretation that wisely retains almost all of the band's brilliant instrumentation while adding a few hazy deep house touches. Thrillingly, the remix rolls along on jaunty polyrhythms before Osunlade switches to rolling deep house beats midway through. An instrumental version of the fine Yoruba Soul remix completes a brilliant package.

Review: Togolese Afro-funk band Vaudou Game has been responsible for some of the most essential music on Hot Casa Music, so the arrival of a new single from them following an extended absence of three years is positive news indeed. A-side 'Bella' is little less than superb: a sparkling slab of Afro-soul in which spacey Moog lines and the band's own distinctive vocals ride a gloriously sunny, percussion-rich groove. They revert to their trademark up-tempo Togolese Afro-funk style on B-side 'Be My Wife', which adds Highlife style guitar motifs and more spacey synth sounds to a stomping, club-ready rhythm. Sun-soaked brilliance: don't sleep!

Review: After teasing with a couple of singles from it, Togolese Afro-funk band Vaudou Game finally unveil their new album Noussin. The band has been responsible for some of the most essential music on Hot Casa Music and this record continues that with lush Afro-soul, percussion rich groves and tight, funky rhythms all interwoven with spacey Moog and distinctive vocal. Elements of highlife define the trilling sounds of 'Bella,' 'Lady Bobo' is more straight up Afro funk and 'Tu As Deconne' is a super high speed chase with 60s guitar riffs and compelling ad libs.
