Dama Damawuzan Et Les As Du Benin - Unreleased Lp
Amazing discovery, unreleased lp out of Togo composed by Dama Damawuzan.
After research, we didn"t find any informations about this recording.
We've found this lp without sleeve, with the labels of the "Tropical Souvenir Vol. 2" lp... Strangely, when we've listened the record for the 1st time, we were surprised, the music isn't the same, the four tracks was previously released on Tropical Souvenir Vol. 2" but it's different versions, more fat and completely twisted with killer synths and drums / drum machine works.. An incredible lp from start to finish!!!
Firstly, this is a studio recording, not a live, the production is amazing, secondly, the tracklisting isn't the same..
Check the long soundclip, the 1st track, "Loxo Nye (Ma Belle Mère)" is a monster hard hittin" cosmic afro funk tune!!!!! ridiculous!!! Then comes " Vino La Medo Na Aziaxo O", also twisted, this version is really fat and funky!! Listen also "Do You Known My Name", check the drum break at the end of the track, insane!!! And " El Trabajo" was overdubbed with string machine.
Record has marks, it plays fine with some light tics.
Don't sleep on this one...
