Album Review: Vaudou Game – OTODI [Hot Casa Records: 26th October 2018]

A sentimental fist-bump to Afro-Funk, Vaudou Game’s album OTODI (released by Hot Casa Records) mixes traditional Togolese scales with a James Brown-style rhythm section intended for ritual dance.

Album Review: The Hempolics – Kiss, Cuddle & Torture Volume 1 [Reggae Roast, 6th October 2017]  

The Hempolics’ debut album Kiss Cuddle & Torture Volume 1 is a fun and inventive debut record packed with zesty numbers from start to finish. Perhaps what makes The Hempolics so distinctive is their refusal to fully commit wholeheartedly to one genre – to describe them simply as a reggae…

Review: Womex 2016 (Santiago de Compostela, Spain – 19th to 23rd October 2016)

Womex is something more than an exhibition: it’s more intense and bonding. That’s probably why, for the second time in the last three years, it happened in Santiago de Compostela.
