Soundway presents the first in a new series of 12" releases which will make available many hard-to-find tracks on loud, DJ-friendly pressings. On Asafo/Enye Woa are two late 1980s Ghanaian highlife cuts taken from the catalog of Nakasi Records. The A-side showcases a track from Jon K, a rework of the traditonal Fanti song "Asafo Beesuon". On the B-side, Pat Thomas needs little introduction; this dance floor-heavy cut has eluded recent reissues. With horns arranged by long-time collaborator Ebo Taylor, it's an instantly recognizable sound that also features Rex Gyamfi, himself a well-known purveyor of 1980s highlife.
