Itadi

    A tremendous Afro-Soul album recorded in Togo in 1977 by Itadi Bonney. This rare album was created by a four piece band formed and leaded by Itadi. It was recorded live in Ghana at the radio station and remixed in Togo. A really stunning fusion of funky arrangements, jazz inspirations and typical Togolese rhythms, sung in English, Mina and Akposo. Itadi’s music is a blend of Ghana’s highlife and soul to create a sparkling, undulating and eminently danceable wave of melodies and rhythms, punctuated by funky keys and layered with smooth vocals and harmonies. Official license pressed on a 180g vinyl housed in heavy deluxe cover including an interview of the artist.

    Rare and in High demand Afro digital Soul EP, recorded in Abidjan (Ivory Coast) in 1981. Originally from Martinique, Clem Marise Voltine aka Mac Gregor moved to Abidjan in 1979 searching for, what she called, her “negritude quest”. She sang about her love for her adoptive city until her death in April 2004 at CHU of Abidjan, Trechville Hospital.A visionary composer, poet and singer, mixing Creole, French and Nouchi, she made a brilliant musical bridge between the West-Indies and Ivory Coast, backed by a soulful group of top Ivorian musicians such as the great Houon Pierre. This unique and must have record is a pure dancefloor killer and will definitely be the next Afro Tropical Hit of the next decade!

    Patrick says: Hot Casa bring you the hottest shit around it seems! This week we get a massive Afro disco grail, recorded in the Ivory Coast and repressed for everyone's enjoyment. Buy on sight folks, there aren't that many around...

    Mindblowing Afro-Soul music from the Ivory Coast here, served up by Deke Tom Dollard, an obscure artist who only recorded two albums in 1979 and 1981 but who created an original funky fusion with Bété langage. This 12" offers a selection of four amazing tracks recorded in Abidjan on two different records label called War Records and As Records.
    The music here is a mixture of funk with heavy basslines, traditional percussions, funky guitar riffs, nice horns section and lyrics in Beté. The song “Demonde” is inspired by harmonies of the famous “Dance to the Drummer Beat” by Herman Kelly. Those two rare records were found by Afrobrazilero (aka Djamel Hammadi) and never appeared on the vinyl market.
