Released: 10th Jun 2016


some of the most extraterrestrial synth music you'll ever hear makes up the 20th release by the fabulous Analog Africa Label, with a somewhat unbelievable back story to support its release.

Located 350 miles off the west coast of Africa, Cape Verde is one of the last places you’d expect to find a treasure trove of electronic dancefloor grooves. The island that synths certainly didn’t forget, it’s the focus of this superb compilation, revealing a vibrant & intoxicating scene that flourished in the late ’70s & early ’80s as the arrival of synthesisers & electronic instruments revitalised the nation’s local mornas, coladeras & funaná rhythms. 8 out of the 15 songs presented here had been recorded with the backing of the band Voz de Cabo Verde, lead by Paulino Vieira, the mastermind behind the creation & promulgation of what is known today as "The Cosmic Sound of Cabo Verde".
