Derrick Harriott – Black Skin Blue Eyed Boys (Jamaica, 1982, Crystal D)

Great cover by Derrick Harriott (my favorite rocksteady artist) of this classic song from Eddy Grant and his Equals band !

Derrick Clinton Harriott, born on the 6 February 1939 in Jamaica, is a singer and record producer, who founded the famous Crystal records label.

This version sums up the Jamaican producing skills, mixing together disco, dub and roots music, and is for me a direct answer to the song Disco Devil, by Lee Perry.

Bell’A Njoh – Ebolo (Cameroun, SOH, 1978)

Today, I wanted to share with you one of my favourite secret dancefloor weapon, a track from Bell’a Njoh, a Cameroonian artist native of Douala and a friend of mine who passed away a few years ago..

Bell’A Njoh was, with Nkotti François and his Black Styls, one of the father of the Makossa, a musical genre from the city of Douala, and he recorded several albums from the 70s to the 90s.

Ebolo“, the track presented here, is a unique Tropical Afro Disco Boogie song with crazy synths, taken from his first albums and that always set on fire all the dancefloors when I play it – Enjoy !!

Siassia And Talk (Republic of Congo, 198?, Private Press)

For today, I wanted to present you a super obscure one and only 12 inches 4 track EP recorded in the 80’s in Paris by the Congolese artist Albert Siassa, originary from Pointe-Noire.

I decided to make you discover “Escale (Bolingo)”, a nice #Afro Boogie track recorded with drum machines – but the whole EP is great and in the same vein !!
