Unauthorised item in the bagging area

Obscure Monday- as if it hasn't been obscure or obtuse enough here recently. Afrobeat legend and drummer Tony Allen remixed by Berlin techno legend Oswald von Moritz back in 2007 (that's ten years ago now, as if you need reminding that these things are all longer ago than you thought they were). What is this? It's Afro-techno-dub.

That doesn't really do it justice. It's lighter than air, languid poly-rhythmic, Nigerian disco via  Deutsch motorik funk with a dubbed out end section.

Whatever it is, I love it! Thanks for this one SA.

That whole Lagos Shake album is very good. Personal favourites are the Mark E and Carl Craig mixes.

I would consider something from 2007 'current' or 'new' Jesus

Some of the kids at school were talking about music. I was earwigging. One of them said she was into 'old' music. Turns out she meant, ready for this, The Strokes, White Stripes etc. Old music.

Jesus, what does that make The Mary Chain then?
