Looking at Dibson & Essody's Justice, one might be surprised to know that a monster boogie track, or even a handful of them, are hidden right beneath those seven bold letters. Dig This Way Records and Sleeve Records have combined forces to make the impossible possible with a reissue of Dibson & Essody's Justice. Originally recorded in 1982 and released by distinguished Nigerian label Wilfilms, this rare, revelation of music was meant for sharing and the two labels will be doing just that. Reworked and remastered, this seven-track dance floor masterpiece follows the 1960 Nigerian liberation from Western colonization, when Nigeria began to use music to move everyone into a place of harmony and community. Like the majority of music emerging from within the Nigerian state at the time, this pairs disco and funk-infused beats with strong, political lyrical statements. Here, the political undertones of "Justice" blend with the smoldering grooves of "Music Lovers" and "Let Your Body Move," classifying this disco as one of the monumental must-haves of Nigeria from the early 1980s.
