Haven’t had a chance to check this out yet but I luv the concept and idea.
I hope it’s good and can’t wait to hear it.

Here’s what the producer says:
“AFRIKO-THEQUE: The Bootleg EP” is the first of it’s kind to infuse traditional African-culture and classic samples with that of the sound of modern day Electro/ Electronic Dance & House Music. We’ve taken the best of a few carefully hand-selected hidden treasures from artists all the way from Nigeria to Mali to Zaire and more and remixed them for a unique remake that would work on today’s dance floor. Featuring remixes by Shabaaz Foster (New York), JamNights (Chile), and The Super Ninja Pizza DJs (New York).
Well, even though I have not heard it yet ( I am at work sitting in my office as I write this where music has been banned due to my rebellious/rule breaking nature) I can tell you that it will definitely NOT be the first of it’s kind. People have been mixing up African samples within Dance/House music since the 70’s mate.
