It’s Friday . . . Let’s Dance

Today’s track come courtesy of a remix project that came out on Honest Jons in 2008.

Lagos Shake brings together Moritz Von Oswald, Diplo, Mark Ernestus and other dance producers who take tracks from the Lagos No Shaking album by legendary Nigerian drummer and musician Tony Allen and remake and remodel them into something quite different to great success. I don’t think that there is a dud track on the album. The album is worth buying for the cover art alone, here.

The posted track has founding father of techno, Carl Craig turn the track Kilode into an 8 1/2 minute dance classic.

    I'm imagining that on the soundtrack of a hard-hitting political thriller set in the mean streets of contemporary Lagos.

    Some of the guys wanted to leave; I said, 'No, we need to wait for Drew'.

    Don't want to interrupt this conversation but could I say great track.

    Pint of beer please. Don't like gin. No, no lager. Beer. Thanks… and some cheese and onion while you're there.

    Chees and onion, would that be Walkers or McCoys Ctel?
