Nigeria Disco Funk Special is an intuitive and supreme collection of heavy dance- floor grooves from urban Lagos in the ‘70s – hot and driving slices of funk, disco and boogie that show just how vibrant the music scene was in one of West Africa’s most populous and culturally diverse cities.

In the ‘70s, it wasn’t just James Brown who influenced the musicians playing in Lagos. The loosely structured and elongated jams that he was pioneering in America had long been a part of Nigerian music. Lagos was the funk and disco capital of West Africa with more nightclubs, bars, spots and dance-floors than any place along the coast from Dakar all the way to Kinshasa.

This collection is a product of the Lagos youth soaking up the funk and disco of the US (Brass Construction, BT Express) and adding their own stamp on a sound that was in tune with America’s latest craze but with a uniquely African twist.
