A new treasure-trove of Vodoun-inspired Afrobeat heavy-funk crossover greatness from Benin, West Africa, every bit as joyous a voyage of discovery as its predecessor was 10 years ago.
A great compilaton can open the gate to another world. Who knew that some of the most excitng Afro-funk records of all tme were actually made in the small West African country of Benin? Once Analog Africa released the frst ‘African Scream Contest’ in 2008, the proof was there for all to hear; gut-bustng yelps, lethally well-drilled horn sectons and irresistbly insistent rhythms added up to a record that took you into its own space with the same electrifying sureness as any favourite blues or soul or funk or punk sampler you might care to menton.
Ten years on, intrepid crate-digger and Analog Africa founder Samy Ben Redjeb unveils a new treasure-trove of Vodoun-inspired Afrobeat heavy funk crossover greatness, featuring 14 tracks from 1963 – 1980. Right from the laceratngly raw guitar fanfare which kicks of Les Sympathics’ pile-driving opener, the previously unreleased “A Min We Vo Nou We”, it’s clear that ‘African Scream Contest 2’ is going to be every bit as joyous a voyage of discovery as its predecessor.
