This is the ideal first instalment of a series of compilations bridging African tracks from the '70s and '80s with the most talented artists of today into a remix and re-edit series. With no multi-tracks available, the artists have gone through an incredible work of editing and overdubbing - almost remixing the original works. The result is a frenetic and fresh blend of styles ranging from modern Afro-jazz cuts to heavyweight dancefloor gear, almost spiritual hypnotic club anthems and low-tempo dreamscapes. In a time in which African music is coming back prominently as one of the primary influences of electronic music, 'Afrosonique Vol. 1' effortlessly goes full circle bringing together the original energy of African classics with the disruptive talent of today's innovators.
