Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds – Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds
Monday, November 6th, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds – Hamad Kalkaba And The Golden Sounds

Image: 1616443 “Hamad Kalkaba and His Golden Sounds 1974 – 1975” I remember the day clearly. I was searching for treasures in a record shop in Yaoundé, the Capital city of Cameroon, when suddenly I came across a 7-inch record with a picture of a young man wearing a traditional hat and bearing the marks of several imposing vertical scars on the side of his face, carved when he was just a boy as a reminder of his heritage in the Musgum tribe of the northern part of the country.

The record contained two songs – ‘Gandjal Kessoum’ and ‘Touflé’ – by an artist I had never heard of before named Hamad Kalkaba. Both cuts were raw classics of fuzzed-out bass, pin-sharp horns, built upon the unshakable foundation of Northern Cameroon’s mightiest rhythm: the Gandjal. The shop owner – who noticed that was listening to the same record over and over again – finally said to me ‘There is another single with a green cover of the same artist, if I am not mistaken’.

Over the next six years I searched for that ‘green cover’ and finally found it in a record collection belonging to an old bar in Parakou in northern Benin. While most of the records had been beaten and worn by a life spent in the jukebox, this one had been sitting in its paper sleeve for forty years, untouched and unplayed, seemingly waiting for us to pick it up and rip the two soulful Gandjal tunes from it, the masterpieces ‘Fouh Sei Allah’ and ‚Tchakoulaté’.

These two records, plus a third simply named ‘Nord Cameroon Rhythms’ constitute the entire discography of Hamad Kalkaba. Neglected for decades by all but the most devoted collectors of Afro music, Hamad Kalkaba and the Golden Sounds at long last gathers together the body of work of one of Cameroon’s forgotten geniuses.

But unlike many musicians who emerged from nowhere, recorded a few singles and vanished again, Kalkaba hadn’t disappeared. Far from it. He was a distinguished public figure, a retired Colonel in the army of Cameroon, and a former member of Cameroon’s Olympic Selection Committee. When we tracked him down he was serving as president of the Confederation of African Athletics. And Although Kalkaba’s job kept him busy, and he seemed initially dismissive of the music he’d made as a young man, he turned out to be an enthusiastic ally in this project. He arranged interviews, helped fill in the blanks and, when we finally met him in Yaoundé in 2016, provided us with photographs, lyric sheets and notes.

During the interview Kalkaba explained how the songs recorded in the mid 1970s were part of a movement, a movement initiated by musicians from all around Cameroon who, with the help of keyboards, drum kits and electric guitars, had started to modernize the traditional rhythms of their regions. For Kalkaba it was no different and backed by his band the Golden Sounds, devoted himself to the promotion of the sounds of northern Cameroon.

One of the aims of Analog Africa is to showcase the colorful diversity of styles that exist in Africa and its diaspora and today we are very proud to be able to give these Gandjal tunes their first worldwide release.

S. Johnson – Red Hot Mama / Don’t You Worry
Saturday, January 21st, 2017 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on S. Johnson – Red Hot Mama / Don’t You Worry

Image: 1608398 ‘Red Hot Mama’ is a cracking mid-50s R&B number that will bless any DJ set or record collection. The personnel and indeed the singer – known only as ‘S. Johnson’ – remain something of a mystery, though it’s known to have been recorded in New Orleans for the Chess label, and certainly the second line drum rolls sound highly reminiscent of NOLA session drummer Charles ‘Hungry’ Williams. Either way, this is yet another unissued gem making its first appearance on 45rpm vinyl on the Jukebox Jam imprint.

In May 1976 a record was released that would have an unforeseen and lasting impact on the music industry “Ten Percent” by Double Exposure was an early release on the New York independent label Salsoul Records. America was in the grip of a disco explosion with new clubs opening on a weekly basis, Salsoul saw what was happening and swiftly created a sound for their label, heavily influenced by the music then coming out of Philadelphia, aimed directly at New York’s dance-floors. Records like “Salsoul Hustle,” “Tangerine” and “You’re Just The Right Size” by The Salsoul Orchestra borrowed heavily from the beautifully orchestrated Philadelphia International records but added a more percussive, bass heavy depth that New York’s DJs loved. So what was so special about this particular single then? Double Exposure was, after all, just another band, “Ten Percent” just another song, one of many “disco” records released that week. First of all Salsoul became the first record label to make a twelve inch single available to Joe Public – the exotic format was previously only available to DJs as promotional items or bought under the counter at certain record stores. Not only that though, the extended version was created by Walter Gibbons, a DJ at New York’s Galaxy 21 who’d built his reputation making exclusive versions of tracks to play in his sets.
In 1976 it was unheard of for a DJ to set foot in a recording studio, being seen as little more than living jukeboxes by the serious music industry. Recording studios were strictly the domain of recording artists and producers so Walter found himself in a unique position, gaining access to a world no DJ had been granted before.
Or so we thought…

The Connection – Labor Of Love
Thursday, July 9th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Connection – Labor Of Love

Image: 1598065 They’ve been applauded by rock pioneer, visionary, and former Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham. They’re championed by E Street legend Little Steven Van Zandt and heard just about every day on the Underground Garage – with 9 singles in heavy rotation, including 5 ” Coolest Songs In The World” . New England’s newest hit-makers The Connection are on a roll… Geoff Palmer, Brad Marino, and the boys in the band recently hit the studio with legendary punk, rock ‘n’ roll icon, producer, songwriter, and historian Andy Shernoff of the Dictators.
“Labor Of Love” is the soundtrack to the love child of Nick Lowe, Flamin’ Groovies, the Kinks, and Graham Parker stumbling through the Bowry with the swagger of Exile-era Rolling Stones, finishing off the night by passing out on the Ramones’ studio floor.

“Labor of Love” features scorching rockers like “Red White And Blue”, punk- rock ravers like “Don’t Come Back” (featuring resident Riverdale, Cheat, and Mope Dan Vapid on his trademark backup vox), slung-back, beer- swillin’ tales of the road like “Let The Jukebox Take Me”, and the Connection’s trademark jangly garage- power- pop of “Circles” and “Good Things”.

The Connection – Labor Of Love
Tuesday, June 30th, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Connection – Labor Of Love

Image: 1598063 They’ve been applauded by rock pioneer, visionary, and former Rolling Stones manager Andrew Loog Oldham. They’re championed by E Street legend Little Steven Van Zandt and heard just about every day on the Underground Garage – with 9 singles in heavy rotation, including 5 ” Coolest Songs In The World” . New England’s newest hit-makers The Connection are on a roll… Geoff Palmer, Brad Marino, and the boys in the band recently hit the studio with legendary punk, rock ‘n’ roll icon, producer, songwriter, and historian Andy Shernoff of the Dictators.
“Labor Of Love” is the soundtrack to the love child of Nick Lowe, Flamin’ Groovies, the Kinks, and Graham Parker stumbling through the Bowry with the swagger of Exile-era Rolling Stones, finishing off the night by passing out on the Ramones’ studio floor.

“Labor of Love” features scorching rockers like “Red White And Blue”, punk- rock ravers like “Don’t Come Back” (featuring resident Riverdale, Cheat, and Mope Dan Vapid on his trademark backup vox), slung-back, beer- swillin’ tales of the road like “Let The Jukebox Take Me”, and the Connection’s trademark jangly garage- power- pop of “Circles” and “Good Things”. Packing a one/two punch in under 30 minutes, “Labor of Love” is jammed with 10 soon- to- be-new classics that all the mods AND the rockers will be screaming for.

Thursday, May 21st, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on Jumpin’ Joe Williams & Red Saunders / Royals – Voodoo Blues / Gas Happy Mama

Image: 1597344 Once again we use our’ ‘legendary R&B imprint” of’ the Jukebox Jam series to release top quality R&B on 45 rpm for the first time, with these two originally unissued cuts from the Okeh vaults finally seeing a DJ friendly vinyl pressing. And two great sides they are too, with Jumpin’ Joe Williams’ super cool vocal track ‘Voodoo Blues’ featuring superior accompaniment from Red Saunders and co, and arranged by the one and the only Sun Ra! On the flip, the Royals’ ‘Gas Happy Mama’ is a raucous, uptempo group vocal romper!

The Chanters / Brother Woodman – She Wants to Mambo / Watts
Friday, January 23rd, 2015 | Posted in Products | Comments Off on The Chanters / Brother Woodman – She Wants to Mambo / Watts

Image: 1594910 Lifted from the second volume of Jukebox Mambo, our album of Latin-tinged R&B, the Chanters ‘She Wants To Mambo’ absolutely epitomizes the sound, with the exotic rumba back-beat and stop-start rhythm – complete with obligatory ‘unghh’ vocal interjections – utilized to ramp up the sex factor. Chanters lead siren Ethel Brown (who also gave us ‘Hot Mama’ from the Jukebox Jam Vol 2 comp) is in particularly flirtatious mood as she coos and oohs back and forth with her backing singers. On the flip, another great side from the Chanters, and another rumba-laced track, this time cut for Chuck Higgins’ Combo label and featuring a male lead, regaling us with a proud tribute to the groups hometown, the south central Los Angeles district of Watts.

Belleruche’s distinctive sound is a self-styled brand of handmade hip hop blues soul: think Sarah Vaughan, Django Reinhardt and Cut Chemist stuck in a lift with Russian beer and a sampler. The trio is made up of Kathrin deBoer (vocals), Ricky Fabulous (guitar) and DJ Modest (decks); the band was formed after Ricky and Modest, […]

Musical feuds and ‘head’ games are nothing new in Jamaican music: in fact the fierce rivalry involved between sound systems in keeping one step ahead of the opposition had given birth to the Kingston recording scene in the late fifties. There has been a long history of sniping, back biting and good (sometimes not so […]

Jackson Analogue
Monday, November 12th, 2007 | Tags: ,
Posted in Features, Magazine | Comments Off on Jackson Analogue

Jackson Analogue are a band to warm the rock’n’roll hearts of all those who still believe that music is about passion, not fashion, and the right song counts for more than the right haircut. Hailing from England’s deep south – and you can’t get any deeper than the Isle Of Wight – the lusty five piece create music that is raw and vibrant, characterised by epic riffs, memorable songwriting, killer vocals and maverick attitude.

Their album debut “And Then, Nothing” displays a dazzling range of influences. A deep respect for the blues-rock of Muddy Waters, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Credence Clearwater Revival, a classic British sensibility that derives from a love of The Who, Led Zep and Family an appreciation of the ’60s r&b sound of labels such as Stax, Chess and King, and an affinity with the ’90s grunge of their own youth are all mixed and matched to create a sound that is uniquely their own, taking the best of rock’n’roll’s rich patchwork and re-stitching it in new shapes and patterns for the 21st century …

Posted in Features, Magazine | Comments Off on A-Trak

Alain Macklovitch aka A-Trak was 13 when he scratched his first record. The year was 1995, the turntable was his father’s, and the mixer … well, he didn’t have a mixer yet. But that problem was remedied soon enough, when he used his freshly earned Bar Mitzvah money to buy himself a used Technics 1200 turntable and, you guessed it, a mixer.

In the months that followed, while the other kids were busy playing sports and watching ‘Full House’, he spent most of his after-school time locked up in his basement, practicing, listening to Pete Rock, DJ Premier and Jazzy Jeff records, studying videotapes and showing his new scratches to his big brother Dave …
