Dan Hancock on afrobeats (http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2012/jan/19/the-rise-of-afrobeats?intcmp=ILCMUSIMG9382) (not afrobeat). I was really into Ice Prince "Oleku" last year but admit I just figured an African act had finally found a way through the major label channels.

Ah right, Luka posted up the Sneakbo version of Oliver Twist the other day which I like a lot. Hadn't realised this was a 'thing' though, just thought that it was a UK Funky tune with an African vocal. Could be interesting, I like that Sarkodie tune thats linked in the guardian article too.

Afrobeats (like UK Funky) is a pretty lame name for it though.

Any mixes of this stuff floating about?

edit, nevermind, theres a link in the article to this one, I'll be checking it out

do you london people know about Dj Neptizzle? i hear he's the king of hiplife over there.

and it don't really matter what people are deciding to call it this month in the UK... this non-sensical, non-descriptive and confusing "name", if it's even any kind of a "name" for "it", if "it" was any kind of cohesive thing which needs a name, will not last long.

i mean the quite different genres, with quite different production values, vocal sensibilities and all over style from the different countries ALREADY HAVE names: HIplife, Naija, Boomba (Kenya), etc. it's like if people decide to put grime and hiphop together in one category and call it "Street Shit"

it is some strange pastine engaged by journalists. /dubstep/ seemed like a pretty lame name seeing it on an XLR8R cover circa 2001. i guess derived from jamaican toast samples being used in Tempa tunes, and UKG being called "2-step" by american journalists, not to be confused with 2-step jungle (see Paradox's 'all you 2-step bastards leave our planet' which im pretty sure wasnt talking about UKG?)

theres a certain lag involved too. listening to DJSL and Scanner.Irational's london-pirate streams in 2000/1 you'd hear "grimey!" when someone dropped Pulse X so at least it was coined by MC's/DJs but theyd moved onto some other adjective before i ever saw it in print.

yes representation of new urban styles from Africa in Europe/America is always a problem. and not only semantically, and not only by the westerners.

i played at the Ghana night of WorldTronics festival here in Berlin last year, and dropped beats for Appietus, Braddez, etc. some of the biggest names in Hiplife. and the entire night i felt did not even represent real Hiplife culture. musically the entire evening to me sounded way too influenced by US hiphop, and not nearly enough of the real Hiplife that i love. which is terrible because i can see how someone not familiar, which is most, would come away having really wrong ideas about what Hiplife is.

afrobeat mashups don't belong in this thread and anyhow these are horribly uninspired and sounds like shit.

especially the second tune, slowing down Charles Kofi Amankwaa Mann's all time infectious hi-life power to a languid listless and lifeless IDM beat.

I guess the Abrantee mix is designed as a sort of easy entry point into this stuff. I must say I'm loving it at the moment, can't stop playing it. But if you've got any pointers to even better mixes I should check out, please share them.

I like nearly every song on the mix, They all sound very anthemic. Slightly less keen on the more hip hoppy stuff and Ice Prince's voice grates on me, but everything else is brilliant. How old are some of these tunes?

fresh Ghana mix (http://www.akwaabamusic.com/blog/gh-love/), and another killer (http://www.akwaabamusic.com/artists/bbrave-artists/oh-wow-really-african/) from AKWAABA.

and this dude in the video above is just promoting his radio show with this name that he is obviously motivated to make into a "genre". i seriously doubt his claim that the name came from Africa; i seriously doubt Naija or Hiplife artists in Nigeria and Ghana are like "oh i make Afrobeats music. that's what my style is called."

judging from the silly shit coming out of his mouth, i probably do.

plenty of American or European friends of mine know more about Chinese culture than i do. ain't nothing strange about that. for instance i have friends who are crazy about Beijing Opera, and can talk for days about its history or stylistic variations -- something which i've no knowledge about what so ever, even though it is the place of my birth and childhood.

so this guy has a radio show called Afrobeats. he has a night called Afrobeats. he wants people to think Afrobeats is a genre so he'll get bookings and influence and money, but he's a clever prick so he does an interview to deny that he's the originator and he's just part of 'the movement' to spread 'Afrobeats', simultaneously legitimising it and distancing himself from it lol

03-02-2012, 01:16 PM
also yeah as Luka says there is a UK African group identity thing definitely, but the individual cultures have always been important when they go home to mama and nowadays there's Gha vs Naija warz in LDN schools, i seen it. if anything the Naija kidz are running tings, they get strength from Skeppy/JME etc etc etc.. now check that Silva - Bo Won Sem Mame tunea gain.. the vid is in a Gha barber shop, the hook is Gha, they're bigging up Gha all day, it's definitely not an African diaspora ting LOL

thing is, Naija kids secretly big up Gha kids for having pride in their own culture cos they remember what it was like to be bagged together as 'Africans' by the West Indian kids. Presumably that's the space that this Afrobeats guy is moving to and looking to exploit.

yeah i guess it's no big deal. i just think it's misrepresenting and homogenizing the cultures. people already think africa is a country fachrissakes.

also why are they bringing up Fela Kuti. Fela has less to do with Naija and Hiplife than someone like Papa Wemba -- and Soukous is historically the biggest African music export, NOT Afrobeat.

i wouldnt really get excited to honest. obviously individual cultures are important, but if you go rave to soca you might see everyone waving the flag of their island but theyre in the same dance. not all african in london are from nigeria and ghana. you got gambians, cameroonians, etc etc and if youre trying to build a little movement why exclude these people. having an umbrella term makes sense to me. its not like africans dont listen to music from other african countries. theres usually one country that is on top musically and has hits across the whole area. whether abrantee is a prick or not is immaterial. obviously hes a self-prmoter but who in the public eye isnt these days.

Stop being mean zhao, this mix is a great listen!

I'm assuming its just a selection of anthems and as an introduction to these sounds, it does its job pretty effectively. The mixing isn't owt special granted, but I get the impression that doesn't really matter too much with this stuff. Nor do think the 'hard' tracks are necessarily the best. Loving some of these throwaway poppy things on there.

Will definitely check your mix out though if you do one, I'm close to rinsing the abrantee one out completely.

just calling a spade a spade Benny. having listened to and played a lot of these types of musics, that is my honest opinion.

of course it's not about being "hard". Afro-Pop is about sweetness and groove. they are saccharin love songs for the most part (but the good stuff transcends cheesiness). and that's precisely why a hard banger like Windeck has no place in it -- Windeck doesn't bang like it should in this context, AND breaks up the love vibes.

while mixing may not be relatively as important as some other musics, but flow IS - something also lacking here.

and speaking of love vibes, this (http://www.mixcloud.com/djzhao/ngoma-08-saudade/)is the closest thing i've done to this type of Afro-Pop so far, a predominantly Angolan Kizomba, Zouk, and Tarraxinha mix.

no i get it, and have gotten it since your first post: solidarity of afro-diaspora within context of UK is important, for rising above various african national identities, putting aside differences, partying together, also for promoting the various different kinds of styles under one umbrella term for the general public, who will likely never remember the names of the specific different genres themselves.

i get it and i agree.

at the same time this Abrantee utters a lot of false, misrepresentative, and plain false crap.


"after 70s Nigerian Afrobeat, "Afrobeats" is the second wave of African music to hit the world"

so what about Soukous, historically the biggest African music export? was that wave 1.5? what about Highlife? Palm Wine Music? Juju? all of which has a LOT more to do with these modern West African pop sounds than Fela.

i think in the interest of self promotion, his attempt to genrify is problematic in many ways.

he could have been a BIT more responsible and accurate in his statements. maybe something along the lines of "'Afrobeats' is a useful generalization which brings together several different styles of West African music, each with its own history, under one umbrella term." instead of "'Afrobeats' is a new genre, a new movement, the second wave of popular dance music coming out of Africa!"

now do you get what I'm saying?

what a beautiful compromise! Well done lads :)

Been listening to some of this guys AFROBEAST mixtapes http://soundcloud.com/wavyj

Fair bit of crossover with what Abrantee plays, perhaps better mixed and sequenced though, maybe you'd appreciate these more Zhao (?).

This is definitely the most infectious and charming pop music I've heard for a long time. I've had Wizkids 'No lele', Oliver Twist, Atumpan's 'The thing' and loads of others going round my head all day for 2 weeks now. i'm guessing some of these tunes have been around for a year or two, but I'm hearing them for the first time so i really fell for that Abrantee tape.

Actually think the sound of Autotune on African vocals is a lovely sound too. No lele is a case in point. And that amazing bombastic intro! No wonder both the Abrantee and the AFROBEAST mixtapes both start with this song.

no doubt. the vocal harmonies, the rhythm... the best is truly blissfully transcendent. after listening to a bunch of Naija and Hiplife "western" R'n'B and pop often sounds very under-developed, lackluster, boring and awkward to me.

i still don't understand most people's reservations or straight intolerance of these kinds of African urban dance-pop: if people can listen to Shakira or any other mainstream US pop/R'n'B, why can't they at least appreciate this? i'm not even asking for recognition of the many ways that these styles are simply BETTER.

yeah Benny, i do like that WavyJ's mixes better.

there are more than 1 roads to Rome, and there are more than 1 way to play this music... but one of the main characteristics of it is the unrelenting high energy -- the feeling of being immersed in a sea of bliss. and as it is with Soukous or many other kinds of African dance music, the times that i have absolutely LOST MY SHIT beyond previously imaginable levels at shows and parties are those times when the energy builds, and builds, and builds, and builds. and when it reaches the stratosphere, when you think OH MY LORD this place can not POSSIBLY get ANY more hype -- the music just fucking kicks it up another notch. total sweat drenched jumping catharsis.* **

and maybe it's my minimal techno background speaking a little bit, this Abrantee breaking up the energy with stop and go all the time in a directionless selection with no flow is just FAIL to me.

*heh, i guess this can be kind of applied to a dj set of many kinds of music... but i think maybe especially with this stuff.

** and by "high energy" i don't mean bpm or physically banging, i mean "high" as in getting high, as in high spirited, as in ecstatic.

DAMN. Guessing "afrobeats" is UK nomenclature, as in my African-rich corner of the midwest, folks typically refer to it more specifically: "Senegalese Hiphop", "Electronic Coupe Decale", "Dancehall from Ghana", and so forth. Mixes I've picked up at my friendly neighborhood Nigerian grocery aren't quite so hype as the ones listed above, tho they're still a little interesting, maybe:

At the moment I'm just listening to mixes/youtubes, but I'd imagine quite a lot of this stuff is available on itunes/amazon etc. Not aware of a specialist site but I'm not sure.

The E.L. double album 'Something ELse' was available to stream/buy on bandcamp for a while but it seems to have disappeared now. Might have to shell out for it, it sounded really good. You can get it on itunes.

The song is apparently on Zigi's album 'The prince of pop' which isn't out in the UK yet. Just searched itunes but is curiously only available in Lithuania at the moment! (at least, thats what it said when i clicked on it) Also forthcoming (maybe?) on amazon http://www.amazon.com/Prince-Of-Pop/dp/B006N7MXX6

Til then there is a hot new version on the same beat to download here.(160kbps only)

This has been around for a few months but wanted to stress that everyone should be appreciating this by now (its also just turned up in the last Neptizzle mix). It's HUGE in Nigeria and apparently a big comeback tune from Olu Maintain whose hit 'Yahooze' was massive a few years ago. No surprises its so big, the song and video are just exquisite.
Maybe my song of the year?

Ball J is Ghana's hottest producer, perhaps best known as the man behind Guru's 'Lapaz Toyota', a mega-hit on the Afrobeats scene. Coming from a background in Hip Hop, he is also the man behind Nu Afrika records, producing the wildest, most inventive Azonto beats for a wide range of vocalists such as Stay Jay, Guru, Gasmilla and Joe B among many others.

This is a selection of some of the best Ball J productions from the last year or so.

no probs, please let me know which ones you like.

I think the afrobeats thing might look like a fad now to the casual observer, especially after the lack of a big follow up hit to Oliver Twist (or much UK press coverage after Dan Hancox's Guardian article). But I've been finding more than enough great stuff to sustain me throughout the year, Ball J, Krynkman and Killbeats having been particularly prolific producers - most of the stuff in my list are by one of them.

Might have underrated this track a bit actually, pure fire and probably my most played song of 2012

nah they're all great songs, would have included bum bum and NAWTi but I kept the list Ghana only. Not that I don't like Naija stuff like Tiwa Savage, Wizkid, D'Banj too of course but I haven't really dug so deep. After NAWTi I think this was my favourite Naija song I've heard this year.

nice one kwaku, thats new to me that one, cool beat. Do you know much about the UK based guys making this stuff? I like Fuse ODG, apparently they've got an album out which is supposed to be good. And 'Antenna' has now been spruced up with a remix, a proper video and a guest slot from...Wyclef Jean!

Also, this one is produced by Ball J, but the singers from London I think.

London definitely looms large in the imagination of the African artists, lost count of the number of tunes that refer to it. Heres just a few.

afrobeats is so much better than jackin, which though i enjoy it, just sounds like a vaguely modified version of bassline and old garage.

an entire sub-genre of this fast azonto stuff out there that is remaining largely elusive to me at the moment.

i'm kind of wondering how long it's been around and i've been oblivious as well. it wasnt until about 4 years ago when spinning around on a decent FM radio and discovering that every corner of the globe had emigrated to Dorchester and started up a FM - some it documented here (http://www.necrat.us/prh/) and putting French skills to use deciphering various creoles to dig a bit. at least the Cape-Verdeans call their hyperkinetic stuff Funana, the Ayisyens Raboday (https://soundcloud.com/djlakay/raboday-lakay-mix-1-dj-lakay), the Dominica Bouyon (https://soundcloud.com/dj-rapetou/session-bouyon-by-dj-Rapetou), but then the Monteserrations who left after some giant volcano will put on drum-machine heavy stuff from 1987 which hits the spot (usually the vocal-less sped-up tech-y version of soca is the "roadmix") (https://soundcloud.com/jcb-h123/dj-f-tboy-bajan-mix), and Grenada and St Lucia seemed to always have had a bit more hard edge than the other islands for whatever reason. it seems theyve been doing it so long the vocalists know how to navigate the waters in some way beyond chicago's trademark 128K RAM short snippets
Gaza Girl Crew - Bad Chatte (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hitVKqRng9A)

am definitely curious about the deal with Portugal as well. seems to have a lot more space than the claustrophobia/overbearing grime thing (great in small doses but gimme RIVET B sides and Certificate18) almost like the villalobos/pronsato background thing but never quite (https://soundcloud.com/deejay-lilocox/o-vento-uma-verdadeira-amizade) and in certain ways (https://soundcloud.com/wk-m-e-grande-produ-oes/wkmusic-mix-mix-mix-2013-house) reminiscent of darker elements starting to distort (https://soundcloud.com/dj-b-bo/b-boy-dos-tia-maria-produ-oes) bubbly stuff circa Pulse-X. NGOMA 20 (in case Zhao is too modest to mention his mixes) had a particularly brassy track which hinted at this

You might be able to ID a tune he's playing for me, rude house/garage number with sultry female vocal "i'm not something, i'm somethiiiing... i'm not [other something] i'm [other somethiiiiing].." sorry that's as specific I can be for the moment

I've just been reading through this thread for the first time, ignoramus that I am, and I'm now a bit worried that I shouldn't have used such a simple label as ''Afrobeats''. In any case I love the mix and in some small way it might get African house/pop a LITTLE bit more publicity.

nowhere near as on it as i used to be but I´d recommend the following...

Itunes and Spotify have quite a lot of stuff by the big names apparently (i don´t use em myself). Otherwise its lo-bitrate mp3s off hulkshare as far as i know

Subscribe to youtube channels while you´re browsing for tunes - this a rabbit hole you could lose yourself in for many hours

Dj Neptizzle´s radio shows and mix cds - much better than Edu I reckon

UK wise Fuse ODG obviously album and stage show this year have been sick, as was him parring band aid lol, plus that "Marry Juana" tune was wicked from Naira Marley and Max Twigz.

Previously it was a missmatch of various YT channels / terribly laid out GH & Naija focused blogs and DJ mixes / radio sets.

Found myself sticking to Neptizzle's shows on Reprezent and NTS atm, who doesn't seem to be as on this stuff - will give Afro B's a go, thanks

Not fully convinced by Zoro on this (Flavour is perfect though) but this beat is incredible. Rampant. Fun video too.
