Mr. Manager

Zazou Bikayes second record which only ever came out on vinyl, in 1985. This edition comprises nine additional tracks, including six previously-unreleased recordings, and three which were only included on limited-edition singles. In 1984, after the Afro-experimental adventures of Noir et Blanc, Zazou Bikaye turned into a proper band, and started developing their own special brand of digital Afrobeat/Afrofunk. The vinyl version includes eight tracks, plus a download card giving access to all fourteen tracks. All fourteen tracks will appear in the digital and the CD versions. A fusion of African chants and polyrythmic percussion strung across hip-hop drums and coloured with synths reminiscent of Kraftwerk... A sensual synthesis of Afro-European electro-jazz. An exercise in transcultural musicianship and hypnotic tribal repetition. (i-D, UK, 1986)
