tony allen - Lagos No Shaking
Tony Allen is a true musical innovator. His pivotal role as Fela Kuti's drummer in the 70's established the Afro-beat style which has since spread around the world to infect bands and artists as diverse as Vampire Weekend and Bugz In The Attic. Released in 2006, 'Lagos No Shaking' is the set that gave birth to a slew of celebrated remixes, but more importantly is Allen's return to the super-funked and soulful sound he pioneered with Fela Kuti over 30 years ago. His tightly syncopated yet fluid rhythms have become the cornerstone of much popular West African music and it's really difficult to pick out another drummer who has had so much influence over the sound of an entire genre. There's an absolute wealth of luxuriant, sun-baked sounds on this album that we implore you to investigate. Highly Recommended!
