Last copies of this 2014 release. On the first side South African singer Shaluza Max's massive Mashkandi/house anthem from 2002 gets a first release on vinyl. With a soaring Zulu vocal and big sound it's a fitting reminder of a very talented musician who worked as a well-respected producer, composer, and arranger. On the flip is a fairly unknown track from the mid-1980s from one of the biggest names in African music, Tabu Ley Rochereau. A kind of almost Balearic, proto-house, Congolese pop cut with drum machines and trademark sweet Congo horn section, "Hafi Deo" is a beautiful track that fell into obscurity.
