Amoeba Review

05/31/2018

Ten years after the legendary 2008 compilation, African Scream Contest, Analog Africa delivers a second volume, reminding the world that some fantastic music came from Benin in the '60s and '70s. With rocking Afrobeat, Afro-funk, Afro-ska and more, these rare tracks from artists like Les Sympathics de Porto Novo, Ignace De Souza & the Melody Aces, and Lokonon André et Les Volcans, are irresistible, especially on the dance floor. The songs vary from updated versions of traditional Vodoun rhythms to straightforward Afrobeat and crossover funk, kicking off with Les Sympathics' fierce “A Min We Vo Nou We” and never letting up.
