Oops this "african" has not heard any this. total lack of these riddims on the radio. south africa is quite "european" tho.
time to go back to school.
Xyxthumbs to this thread.
don't miss out on the fact mix by bass clef!

factmagazine Wrote:For his FACT mix, our man – real name Ralph Cumbers – has avoided the kind of British and Jamaican bass sounds that he’s invariably associated with, and chosen instead to showcase some of the African music which has been his private passion for years now. The results are incredible. All the tracks have been ripped from vinyl and specially edited, and it’s not hard to see how they’ve impacted on Cumbers’ productions in terms of mood, rhythm and character. See over the page for the mix’s tracklist and a few words with its maker.
lovin this thread cheers
Wow, haven't heard of any of this stuff - will have to get checking.

I'm surprised noones mentioned Fela Kuti though. Great musician and an amazing character, worth reading his wikipedia entry.
