Djeuhdjoah And Lieutenant Nicholson

2 Plus

DjeuhDjoah & Lieutenant Nicholson are French composers and Afro-soul singers. The duo are creating a new vibe with French sounds and mixing it with jazz, Afrobeat, electronics and soul. They call their music 'Afropean songs', a collection of jazzy-pop melodies, Afro-soul and funk arrangements. It's a deliciously fresh sound which respectfully tips its hat to many styles of global soul and funk that has preceded it. A true melting point of influences dressed and decorated in a production prowess and electronic patina that gives it some serious weight and instantly makes it sound modern. There’s a irreplaceable charm throughout as the duo navigate the varied landscape plotted throughout the LP. Whether its pool-side sway, soundsystem ready party tracks, ode-to-Brazilian pop, broken beat or reggae-funk jams; the duo approach each track with confidence and flair. Recommended!

Roger Damawuzan

Fine Fine

Since his introduction in the 60’s, Roger Damawuzan has lit stages on fire, whether it be with The Rickers Orchestra or with The Melo-Togo Orchestra (taking home 2nd place for the first National Festival of Tologese Music). His first 7" vinyl "Wait For Me" is a holy grail for diggers all around the world. It was such a hit that Togolese music is and will forever be stamped by Roger Damawuzan. He was principal in introducing Gazo, Akpesse and Kamou rhythms to modern day soul music. Relentless and unstoppable, Roger Damawuzan is now making a comeback with a heavy funk 7 inch!

This release contains an unreleased single from the album "Seda". Such a force of nature, this album could have been only captured, if not mastered, by one studio. Such mission was accomplished by the legendary studio OTODI (Office Togolese of Disks) by utilizing solely analog equipment to translate and to breath all of Damawuzan’s soul into this album. Roger Damawuzan could have been supported by only one group. Led by Peter Solo, the members of the Vaudou Game and Lomé’s most talented musicians are at Damawuzan’s disposal for this new record.

Djeuhdjoah & Lieutenant Nicholson

Pas Si Vite

The funky French duo is back with a new 7"! Once again, DjeuhDjoah & Lieutenant Nicholson push the boundaries of the traditional 'French song' to make the world dance. Two effervescent numbers, the first rich with boogie instrumentation seriously catchy vocal parts. Our two contributors are the self-heralded leaders of Créolité & Afropeanité, and the song "Pas Si Vite" champions deceleration and positivity during our trying times! 

"Caipirinha" is a soft tribute to Bossa Nova, acoustic drums and guitar gently bolstered with electronic bassline and (I think) extra kick drum for the weight. 

Recorded at Le Triangle des Bermudes, the home studio of Lieutenant Nicholson, Horns, live drums, percussions and vocal choir were recorded at Bastille village at the label basement, e
Mastered by Frank Merritt at The Carvery.

Pas Si Vite
Caipirinha

A classic and essential hi-life & afro funk album from one of the greatest Ghanaian singers and composers reissued for the first time!

The legendary Alhaji Kwabena Frimpong's fantastic rare album was recorded in 1984 in Germany and originally produced and distributed from Hamburg. Frimpong was born on July 22nd 1939 at Ofoase in the Ashanti - Akim district, died Oct 18th 2005 in Kumasi (Ghana).

He entered right into music after elementary school by joining Star de Republic and later Oko's band after which he left for K. Gyasy's band where he worked for more than 6 years. As a prolific songwriter and singer, here's the reissue of his amazing album, a modern fusion of hi-life and soul. The excellent background is given by the famous Cubanos Fiesta with members of Vis-A-Vis band such as the famous Sammy Cropper on guitar or Slim Manu on bass.

Originally produced by Atakora Mensah in Hamburg, this four songs recording is a blend of danceable and spiritual soul and straight hi-life. A must-have vinyl of percussive afro-funk for all the music connoisseurs, “Abrabo” is a true masterpiece, so hard to find and reaching crazy prices in the second hand master.

Remastered by Frank Merritt at The Carvery. Pressed on Replika format. Fully licensed by the Alhaji Kwame Frimpong Family.
