Various Pop Makossa The Invasive Dance Beat Of Cameroon 1976 1984
Horns blare so loud, they might make famous salsa musician Willie Colon jealous. But the real highlight is the counter rhythm on the synth that is almost Various Pop Makossa The Invasive Dance Beat Of Cameroon 1976 1984 simplistic sounding. Featuring a similarly large band with intense Farfisa organ solos, punctuated horns, and a chorus of backup women preaching behind, it doesn't have quite the professionalism of Fela Kuti, but embodies that type of James Brown groove they were both striving for.

Pop-Makossa shines a light on a glorious but largely overlooked period in the story of Cameroonian makossa, when local musicians began to replace Various Pop Makossa The Invasive Dance Beat Of Cameroon 1976 1984 and highlife influences with the rubbery bass of classic disco and the sparkling synth flourishes and drum machines of electrofunk. The resultant compilation, which apparently took eight years to produce, is packed full of brilliant cuts, from the heavily-electronic jauntiness of Pasteur Lappe's "Sanaga Calypso" and horn-totin' Highlife-disco of Emmaniel Kahe and Jeanette Kemogne's "Ye Medjuie", to the dense, organ-laden wig out that is Clement Djimogne's "Africa".
