Get The Music Now / Africa
7" - For the first time on 7-inch vinyl, Acid Jazz present short versions of both Get The Music Now & Africa, taken from the super rare self-titled album by Ipa-Boogie. Originally released in 1978 these tracks are some of the only known recordings by this obscure band and present the listener with some of finest afro-boogie and afro funk there is.

Bakassine Gabou / Moumouni Bassina Borou Fo
7" - These two tracks were released as a 45 in 1975, but this is so scarce that a copy is yet to surface on eBay and it isn't even listed on Discogs. But it’s not all about the rarity – 'Bakassine Gabou’ is highly-charged hypnotic dancer perfect for DJs, while 'Moumouni Bassina Borou Fo’ builds in sonic intensity by layering guitar, vocals and percussion.

Gbeti Ma Djro / Angelina II
7" - More dancefloor dynamite from Benin's almighty Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou Dahomey, this time in the form of 'Gbeti Ma Djro'. Confusingly described on the centre label of the 1971 original issue as ’Soul’, this is in fact a prime slice of Afro-psych-funk complete with wails and grunts over fierce drums and picked guitar. 'Angelina II’ is a much warmer affair that rides a shuffling mid-tempo pachanga groove.

Unité Africaine
LP - Two monumental full-side tracks from a pair of late 70s Orchestre Poly-Rythmo albums! Originally released in 1977, the title track is an infectious Afro-Latin workout that is interwoven with driving horn stabs by master trumpet player Tidiani Kone. 'Mede Ma Gnin Messe' is taken from the 1978 release 'Special 30 Novembre', and this time Poly-Rythmo wore their Afro-funk hat to deliver almost sixteen minutes of dancefloor fire.
