8 TRACKS: FROM ACCRA, GHANA WITH RABO & SNOB

An inspirational force amidst the Israeli electronic music community

Since the mid nineties RaBo and SnoB have been collecting records and playing their take on funk, soul and disco out in clubs in Tel Aviv and beyond. The pair are arguably an inspirational force amidst the Israeli electronic music community and continue to shine a light on sounds far beyond the realms of the country. The pair are set to release a new EP on LoveDancing titled 'Yawumna'. The release was the result of a chance meeting at Accra's main market while the duo were out looking for records and handmade percussions. They guide us through some selections found overseas. 

" As far as we’ve been told, there’s only one record shop left in Accra. Basically it's a metal ship container packed with records, literally up to the ceiling. All look in REAL bad shape, some are not audible, some still play nicely and all are separated into batches of 25 records each. They are tied together with plain rope. It's hot, we mean 40 Celsius, steamy hot. Out of nowhere the man in charge pulls out a very old, yet still functioning, turntable which is connected to a shabby mid range only boombox with a steel wire. Now, let the digging begin."

GYEDU-BLAY AMBOLLEY - APPLE

Recognised the name from a killer tune Simi Rap, and when we saw this LP our heart started pumping real fast, but it ain’t nothing compared to the beats and craziness in this amazing LP. If we were to pick just one we'd pick 'Apple'. The title track is a pure Ghanian Afro funk bomb with a crazy disco bass line, quirky synths and that stomping laid back groove on which Gyedo is doing his thing. Something big.
