2013 repress. "Two raw slabs of Afro rhythms re-edited by Frankie Francis (Sofrito) and Simbad (Raw Fusion/Brownswood). The second in the Sofrito Super Singles series uncovers dancefloor sounds from two of the musical legends of Benin City in western Nigeria. Victor Uwaifo's early '80s psychedelic masterpiece 'Ohue' is brought down to the bare bones to produce a seriously heavy dancefloor beast -- loping synths, deep bass and a heavy beat combine to produce a track that takes in dubby disco and pure Nigerian sounds for an Afro club winner. Sonny Okosun's Afrobeat classic 'Odenigbo' is smartened up for the dancefloor into a take-no-prisoners club workout for the Tropical DJs."
