Celebrating the smoky nights and early mornings of the Congolese nightclubbing scene of the 1970s, this record brings together 11 prime cuts from Verckys et l´Orchestre Vévé who epitomised the funked-up fever of the Congo at this time. Whether it’s the transatlantic shimmer of Sex Veve or the irresistible rumba charm of Nakomi Paralise, these songs document the growth in popularity that this music saw in the mid-late 70s. Channeling the passion of the Congolese floors with the sweltering East Africa heat (a number of the cuts were recorded in Nairobi), this collection of tunes capture a moment in time that still sounds refreshingly upbeat and infectiously spirited.
