SNDWCD010 – Nigeria Disco Funk Special! The sound of the Underground Lagos Dancefloor 1974-79

Nigeria Disco Funk Special! The sound of the Underground Lagos Dancefloor 1974-79

Lagos, Nigeria, 1974-79: The Funk & Disco capital of West Africa. More nightclubs, bars, spots and dance-floors than any place along the coast from Dakar all the way to Kinshasa. The only 24 track recording studio in the same stretch with more DJs & imported American LPs and 45s than any of it’s neighbours. Soundway presents 9 slabs of rhythm form a time when Saturday  and Sunday nights in Lagos City were for looking good and going out. All of them vital musical feathers in the Lagos DJ bow alongside the latest  Brass Construction, BT Express & James Brown imports that were hot of the plane.
