Colombian sound-system music in-depth with 40 slow, nagging bangers made spliced from mad subs, Nigerian highlife records and tumpin’ kicks, all presented on (double) vinyl for the 1st time!

Rough, tough, thumping, bumping sound-boy breakbeats from the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Forty brand new buckaroos, tooled and primed by Jeanpi Perreo, Edwin Producciones, and DJ Ander - all from local sound-systems - careering guarapo-style out of punches of vintage Nigerian highlife, by legends like Steven Amechi, Sagbeni Aragbada, and Cardinal Rex Jim Lawson. 

Includes a full-size booklet detailing the fascinating history of this music, seamed into the strange, tentacular byways of hand-to-hand vinyl distribution, record collecting, and musical connoisseurship, and the soundclash traditions of the region, suffused with the politics and culture of the Black Atlantic, stretching back to the 1950s. Edited and mastered by CGB at Dubplates & Mastering for maximum oomph and presented in a gatefold sleeve.
