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.

Tad Wily is an amazing producer, he makes really funky minimal house and boogie tunes. This remix of Bumper was a real stand out from his latest DJ mix. I love how the bass evolves and gets better and better as the track drives on.
