A Side:
“Nassima” is a deep hybrid of Soukous and Highlife, recorded in Abidjan in 1975 by the mysterious Bazaré D. Pablo. Thumping percussion, intricate guitar, ethereal vocals and a solid bassline add up to a perennial Sofrito classic that never fails.

B Side:
Atalaku 8 – a Paris-based Ivoirien/Congolese group operating out of the legendary Kos studio – lay down a seriously funky house-tempo Coupé Décalé track, topped off with a Siwo dub.
