I think this might actually be the best mix I’ve ever posted on this blog, mostly because I’m cannibalizing a whole bunch of other excellent compilations that were put together by actual, legitimate anthologists. This is also the longest mix I’ve ever posted, featuring over two hours of music drawn from:
Nigeria 70: Lagos Jump 
The Rough Guide to Psychedelic Africa
African Scream Contest: Raw & Psychedelic Afro Sounds From Benin & Togo 70s
Brand New Wayo: Funk, Fast Times, and Nigerian Boogie Madness
Francis Bebey - African Electronic Music 1975-1982 
Those Shocking Shaking Days (Indonesian Hard, Psychedelic, Progressive Rock & Funk: 1970-1978)
Brazil Bossa Beat! The Story of Elenco Records
Plus rare soul from Brute Force (feat. Sonny Sharrock) and Donnie & Joe Emerson (recently covered by Ariel Pink and Hype Williams), a cut of smoking m’balax from Senegal’s Etoile 2000 (a band formed by two members who split off from Youssou N’Dour’s Etoile de Dakar band in 1977), and a selection of the finest in steamy contemporary beats from Blues Control, Peaking Lights, Nguzunguzu, Moons, Jeans Wilder, Clams Casino, Poolside, and Kindness (a 9-minute dub edit by Philippe Zdar!). And a brand-new track from the Dirty Projectors. Enjoy!
