King Sunny Adé had been making his own music since 1974 with his group the Green Spots before creating his large African Beats group. This band, despite making literally over 100 records in Nigeria, failed to stir much Western interest until Mango Records, a subsidiary of Island, took a chance and issued the breakthrough album Juju Music in 1982. With its seven extended cuts, it introduced King Sunny Adé & His African Beats to the U.S. as well as England and most of the rest of Europe – save for France, where the band had previously been able to tour. This U.K. two-fer reissue of 1983's Synchro System and Aura (on Cherry Red's T-Bird imprint) is comprised of the other two recordings in the band's Mango catalog (the band was dropped after sales of these two recordings proved disappointing to label bosses who tried to market Adé as "the new Bob Marley").

Africa is the motherland of rhythm, and the place where music that speaks of great hardship often winds up sounding blissfully angelic. It's also the world capital for music that unlocks the pelvis. This compilation of material the Nigerian guitarist King Sunny Ade (born Sunday Adeniyi) recorded in his homeland in the early '70s is a shining example of all that. Juju is music of extraordinary liquidity, propelled by precisely pitched talking drums and intertwined electric guitar conversations, sometimes four at once. There are vocals, and Ade's band, which during this period contained up to sixteen instrumentalists and singers, often gathers itself into a church choir. The prayerful themes float over isolated, sometimes hyperactive strands of guitar counterpoint, with rhythmic repetitions that lead, slowly but surely, to illumination.

Juju Music is the 1982 major label debut of Nigerian Jùjú band King Sunny Adé and His African Beats. It represented the first worldwide release for Adé, who was already established in his native Nigeria as its "biggest musical draw and Juju music's reigning monarch". The album was a critical and commercial success, peaking at 111 on Billboard's "Pop Albums" chart. The New York Times, which described the album in 1982 as "the year's freshest dance-music album", credited it in 1990 with having launched the "World Beat movement in the United States"

Quite possibly the most beautiful and influential West African record ever released internationally, Juju Music remains a revelation. With a phalanx of electric guitars that functions like a percussion section, and talking drums that sound like a gossipy Greek chorus, Nigerian juju star King Sunny Ade and His African Beats, all 20 of them, proved that African music could be as complex, dramatic, and symphonic as any European ensemble. Some thanks must go to French producer Martin Meissonier, who took the basic elements of Ade's sound–unison guitars, Yoruban drumming, seamless song medleys, and self-reflexive lyrics–and added a diverse assortment of Jamaican production techniques to heighten, deepen, and psychedelicize a sound that, with Ade's deliciously sweet vocals and the haunting strains of Demala Adepoju's Hawaiian steel guitar, was plenty wild to begin with. A masterpiece

The renewed popularity of Afrobeat in dance music has been well documented with a number of compilations exploring some of the many original Afro funk fusions that have influenced today’s music. Strut take the idea forward with a definitive look at funky Lagos during the 1970s over 3CDs and 3LPs.
The project digs deep into the Nigerian archives, highlighting funky rarities from established names Fela Kuti (from his early days to his later work with Africa 70), King Sunny Ade and Sir Victor Uwaifo. We also take a look at the wide variety of funky fusions spanning the full spectrum of Nigerian tribes and dialects from the Sly Stone funk of Segun Bucknor and the raw Ibo rhythms of The Funkees to the more Muslim-influenced Hausa language grooves of Bala Miller. The set comes with a fully edited documentary as the third CD featuring exclusive interviews with many of the key figures in Lagos at the time from King Sunny Ade and Ebenezer Obey to Ginger Baker, Roy Ayers, Fela and Femi Kuti.

A cerebral soul-jazz trio gives up some art and some funk with guest horn players and guitarist Marc Ribot. They call it "Shuck It Up," and rightly so, since they're neither as dissonant nor as ironic as many of their peers playing around downtown New York City. But that doesn't explain why these three don't swing as hard playing Monk, Coltrane, and King Sunny Ade as they do laying down their own earnest grooves and dismantling Bob Marley for mixing up with the Monk. Whether it's insecurity, indifference, or the physical chops they haven't developed to match their minds is for demanding listeners to decide. Or else it's all the same dilemma and will go away with time, just like the band's slow tunes.

Within weeks of the release of their acclaimed debut album, television performances and augmented reality iOS app, we can reveal that the collaboration between Brian Eno and Karl Hyde continues with a second full-length record HIGH LIFE, which is released 30th June 2014 on Warp Records. The experiment drew inspiration from the repetitive minimalism of composers like Steve Reich and Phillip Glass, and from the polyrhythmic music of Fela Kuti and funk, as well as continuing the work that Eno and Hyde have done separately.
