Image: 1598720 A double shot of vital Soukous / Coupé Décalé hybrids out of Abidjan & Paris.

A1: Nassima (12? edit) / Bazaré D. Pablo
B1: Africa (Original mix) / Atalaku 8
B2: Africa (Siwo dub) / Atalaku 8

A Side:
“Nassima” is a deep hybrid of Soukous and Highlife, recorded in Abidjan in 1975 by the mysterious Bazaré D. Pablo. Thumping percussion, intricate guitar, ethereal vocals and a solid bassline add up to a perennial Sofrito classic that never fails.

B Side:
Atalaku 8 – a Paris-based Ivoirien/Congolese group operating out of the legendary Kos studio – lay down a seriously funky house-tempo Coupé Décalé track, topped off with a Siwo dub. Available from 21.08.2015
