Mr Bongo knows records so when the upcoming Record Club Volume Five arrived in the post last week, we were excited to see just what they’ve thrown on this 2LP compilation and it exactly what we expected. Covering a wide spectrum of music, volume five takes us across the board and delivers a few of our favorites and even more of what we weren’t previously hipped to which is exactly what they’ve provided with these releases.
“This selection is less dancefloor-driven than our previous volumes, as fewer opportunities for live events drove us to explore other paths and styles in the musical spectrum. But, whether you’re DJing for a kitchen or a club, there is still a generous serving of spicy dancefloor magic. For Volume 5, we looked to a broad church – from Brazil to Cuba, Ghana, Jamaica, Japan, Mauritania, South Africa, Sweden, Trinidad and Tobago, the UK, and the US. We pulled songs from the 70s up to the present day and feature a stellar cast of artists.”
“There’s an exclusive track from Sven Wunder which was recorded solely for this compilation. We also have a track from Admin which was released as a private press 7″ at the start of 2021 and one we felt was far too good to only be available for the lucky few. You’ll also discover one of our most treasured Gyedu Blay Ambolley productions, a full-force African disco colossus!”
