2013 repress, originally released 2006. Mark Ernestus, one half of the Basic Channel, Maurizio and Rhythm & Sound teams, inaugurates our series of reworkings of tracks from Tony Allen's Lagos No Shaking album. "Mark's Mix" is not a nowadays-style remix; more an extended mix in the classical tradition headed by Tom Moulton, back in the days when Francois Kevorkian was his teaboy, and there was a cupboard in his office stuffed with Studio One master-tapes. "Mark's Disco Dub" is its dub. This record brings to Afrobeat the dubwise intelligence of the disco mix. It's beautifully crafted, irresistibly grooving and heavy.
