Following their first 7" in 2018 Budabeats Records is proud the release the debut LP of pioneering Hungarian Afrobeat supergroup, the Mabon Dawud Republic.

The band started out as the Fela Kuti tribute band for the very first Felabration event in Budapest.
In the past two years they created an impressive repertoire of their own tunes. The rawness you can hear on their early recordings transformed into a more mature and sophisticated sound, still deeply rooted in the traditions of West-African music.
They even toured in Ghana where they had the chance to record with highlife legend Pat Thomas, as you can hear on 'Gyae Abrabi'.
On 'Na Lie' they are joined by Fela's original Egypt 80 band member, keyboard player and singer Dele Sosimi.
Other guest performances include Ghanaian vocalist and kologo player Stevo Atambire (on 'Mawadioh' and 'Talk to Me') and vocalist Abate Berihun (on 'Nanu Nanu Neye').


Sil says: Sizzling Afrobeat from Hungary's Mabon Dawud Republic featuring legendary guests Pat Thomas and Dele Sosimi. Remember there are no boundaries to great music, and these guys are the ambassadors of the next generation of Afrobeat musicians.

Budabeats Records celebrates its 10th anniversary with label bosses DJ Gandharva & Von Yodi picking 11 previously unheard tracks from artists of the Budabeats family.

"Shades Of Budabeats" features African-influenced jazz and funk from Dokkerman & the Turkeying Fellaz plus The Mabon Dawud Republic; head-nodding hip-hop beats from Abase and Tom Caruana; straight dancefloor friendly pieces (BeTe aka Suhov, Umoja, M.W.D, Chilum Trio & Auto Reverse) and also, laidback grooves (Freakin' Disco & Crookram).

It's a perfectly balanced compilation, beautifully sequenced too, so as well as cherry picking tracks for your next all encompassing DJ set, you'll be quite content just sticking this one your player at home and reveling in the sounds of truly charismatic label.
