This week: Marcello Giordani with some Nigerian disco, jet jaguar brings the funky IDM steez, and Awesome tapes from Africa – well, the name gives that one away really.

Marcello Giordani

I’ve discovered that I love disco thanks to the Beautiful Swimmers Don Cherry mix I posted here a few weeks back, & I’ve been doing some internet digging. Here’s a very cool mix by Marcello Giordani – from the Italo Deviance blog – of early 80s Nigerian disco

No tracklist i’m afraid but i’m too Disco’d up to care
