Editorial Reviews

Analog Africa proudly present - Pop Makossa - The Invasive Dance Beat of Cameroon 19761984 in 2 beautiful packages (CD with 44-page Booklet amp; 2XLP Gatefold LP (140gr)with 20-pages LP size Booklet) The Pop Makossa adventure started in 2009, when Analog Africa founder Samy Ben Redjeb first travelled to Cameroon to make an initial assessment of the country's musical situation. He returned with enough tracks for an explosive compilation highlighting the period when funk and disco sounds began to infiltrate the Makossa style popular throughout Cameroon. So why has it taken almost eight years from that first visit to the final compilation From the very beginning, there were several mysteries hanging over Pop Makossa. What had happened to Bill Loko, the teenage super-star whose monster hit 'Nen Lambo' caused such a sensation that he was forced to flee to the other side of the world How did bandleader Eko Roosevelt go from Cameroonian prodigy to chief of an idyllic seaside village And who exactly was Mystic Djim, the dreadlocked producer and mercurial hit-maker whose wizardry on a simple home four-track recorder could outshine even the mighty studios of Cameroon's National Radio station It was not until DJ and music producer Dni Shain was dispatched to Cameroon to finalise the project, license the songs, scan photographs, and interview the artists that some of the biggest question marks began to disappear. His journey from the port city of Douala to the capital of Yaound brought him in contact with the lives and stories of many of the musicians who had shaped the sound of Cameroon's dance music in its most fertile decade. Indeed, all the tracks on Pop Makossa are a revelation. The beat that holds everything together has its origins in the rhythms of the Sawa people; Ambassey, Bolobo, Assiko and Essew, a traditional funeral dance
