The second in the Sofrito Super Singles series uncovers sounds from Benin City in western Nigeria – click on the titles to listen!

 

Side A – Sir Victor Uwaifo ‘Ohue’ – Frankie Francis & Simbad Edit

Side B – Sonny Okosun ‘Odenigbo’ – Frankie Francis & Simbad Edit

“Frankie Francis and Simbad get trigger-happy with the loops on yet another fine re-edit from the Sofrito camp. Check for the analogue fizz and Afro thump on ‘Odenigbo’. Party starter!” DJ Magazine
