Originally released on Jeffrey Turpin'sTrinidadian record label IDA, 'Star Child' has since becomehighly sought-after by both DJs and collectors alike as aninvisible, yet astonishing piece of Caribbean disco. Unableat the time to gain the traction and success that it deserved,we hope that this re-release provides an opportunity to bringsuch a great record to a much wider audience.Kallaloo consisted of various Trinidadian musicians includingKeith Alexander and Peter Wayne Barkley. Keith had beenwell-respected as a member of the Trinidadian group Impact, andwas later to become an in-demand producer and composer underthe name of Keith Diamond, responsible for various hits by BillyOcean, Donna Summer, Starpoint and Melba Moore. In contrast,Peter was a well-known recording session drummer, but after'Star Child's' release he moved to North Carolina to pursue otherinterests and “was never heard from again”.

Love Africa Soul
7" | 2018 | EU | Original (Kalita)
12,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Organic Grooves
Born in Baleveng, Cameroon in 1952, Momo Joseph is known more for his endeavours in acting than for his musical output, having appeared in numerous French films between 1977 and 2000, including 'L'Africain' 1983 and 'La Haine' 1995. However, his single 'Love Africa Soul', originally released in 1980, is acknowledged by many as an outstanding piece of relentless West African disco, and has recently become highly sought-after by collectors and DJs alike. Momo has lived most of his life in Paris, however has always retained a strong connection to his native Cameroon and to other fellow Cameroonian musicians such as Tala A.M. and Manu Dibango. Here we pair the original 'Love Africa Soul' with an on-point afro disco re-work of the original B side, 'Cameroun Airline', courtesy of Mukatsuku's very own Nik Weston. We hope that this much-deserved re-release helps to shine a light on Momo's career and musical genius.

After moving to Paris in 1976 and having played with other well-known bands such as N'Bamina, Osibisa, and with numerous artists including Jimmy Hyacinthe and Papa Wemba, 'Mon'Da Center' was Ernest's first solo album. Recorded at Studio Caroline in Paris's 20th sector over the space of one week, this self-funded ultra-rare album regularly exchanges hands for eye-watering prices. Pretty much unknown except to the most hardened of diggers, 'Bian Kou', 'E Clolo' and 'Mioukouna' are guaranteed to set any dance floor alight, with hypnotic Afro-disco grooves, killer drums and angelic female vocals. We hope that you love the tracks as much as we do, and invite you to join us in celebrating the musical world of NST Cophie's, all on glorious 180 gram vinyl!
