"Some call it disco, some call it boogie, we call it the Lagos Disco Inferno, 12 smokin' rarities straight from Nigeria, dating back to '76-82, compiled by Fronk Gassner (aka OJ Franc 0, Soulpusher) of Voodoo Funk fame. Surprisingly familiar, yet intriguingly foreign, these tracks sound just as fresh today as they did 30+ years ago. Our record is rife with horns, moog and bells and whistles to keep you up all night. Great liner notes by Dean Disi (journalist and former executive of lye Records, lagos) and a special message from extreme record hunter Damian Iwuagwu (Logos). Following in the footsteps of amazing African re-issues of late such as Ofege (Academy LPs), Pax Nicholas and the Netty Family (Daptone), Ghana Special (Soundway), this album stands alone as the first compilation to focus on African disco. But make no mistake, you won't hear any cheesy strings or nasty Roland synths. This is straight up laugh Nigerian disco funk! Restored for you with loving care from Academy LPs. Work it out!" Artists include Doris Ebong, Geraldo Pino, Grotto, Pogo Ltd., Asiko Rock Group, Paradise Stars, Emma Dorgu, MFB, Christy Essien, Tirogo, BLO and Nana Love.
