Just heard an interview w/ Antibalas on one of the NPR shows - got me primed for Afrobeat...ah lovely..
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:12pm northguineahills:

Crap, I wish I knew it was there. I worked 2005-2007 in LeFrak City and would usually explore the area during lunch, and made it to Lewis Ave many times.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:13pm Gary:

NGH! You know, there is also a Ghanian grocery across the street from LeFrak that sells CDs
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:17pm northguineahills:

I've been that grocery to buy groceries and chili peppers, but somehow missed the cds.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:18pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

(...not sure this is 'Afrobeat' zackly - but a joy by any name...)
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:18pm Gary:

They are on the wall to your left-hand side when you walk in. But maybe they didn't have them until after 2007?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:19pm Gary:

Not Afrobeat, RevRab, just straight up Nigerian pop / rock!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:21pm Gary:

This Wrinkar Experience track is my pick for all time greatest pop song ... from anywhere

Not Nigerian, but in the neighborhood (American/Burkinabe)

@Hyde, tambourine? or ... one of those scritchy scratchy things?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:35pm hyde:

@Gary it sounded weird!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:36pm Gary:

It could have been a stream or CD glitch!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 7:38pm northguineahills:

Nice Olatunji vibe w/ the last track. (can't imagine why....)

Thanks Gary. May try to get out there sometime; rarely get to Queens.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 8:02pm TDK60:

Good to hear more trad/roots music; most Nigerian stuff I've heard so far is pop.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 8:02pm Gary:

I love that the shop has a full spectrum -- you don't always get that

I thought of you when I picked it out, Tim! It's almost Moroccan-sounding in a way

From the WFMU warehouse, I'm not sure to pick the old slipmat from 2012 or yet another dj premium (still slowly picking my swag).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 8:49pm Gary:

Slipmat!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 8:49pm Gary:

Tho, I got a dj /rupture premium
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 8:50pm northguineahills:

Yeah, I was leaning that direction, it has psychedelic jaguars and leopards on it.

/already have all of /rupture's premiums, the one left there is amazing, 4 hours of rai inspired Algerian music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 8:51pm Gary:

Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 8:55pm Gary:

You'll love it!
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 9:00pm northguineahills:

When I got that premium, I was working at a marketing tech firm, and some random Korean developer sat behind me. I got up, and heard through his ear buds he was listening to Arab music. It was his last day (never saw him before), so I let him copy it (He was grateful).
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 4/4/18 9:01pm northguineahills:

Ok, leaving work in 5 mins, thanks Gary!

"juju music" was a revelation for me. i'd been dabbling in african music but at that age -with my drugs and space jams i didn't know there'd be nigerian music that suits those explorations.
...his live show was just as conducive to inner exploration.
