Ernesto Djédjé was a huge star on the Ivory Coast in his day and listening to “Ziboté,” it makes perfect sense. Catchy vocals, great instrumentation, groovy rhythms, and—although rare for West African records from the 70s—the recording is crystal clear and expertly mixed. One look at the cover and you know it’s gonna be funky.

The elusive Detroit champion Moodymann has been churning out deep, sample-based soul music for late-night dance floors for 20 some years. This self titled LP, in my opinion, is his greatest achievement.
