We're coming Home: Pat Thomas' Stage Two - an afro-funk Masterpiece! →



Nana Amoo-Mensah I aka Pat Thomas is a national treasure in Ghana, affectionally referred to as “Mr. Golden Voice,” but his success early on, much like the success of many other funky Ghanaian vocalists, was in large part due to his working, and personal, relationship with the legendary Ebo Taylor.

New Sol Power Joint: Ernesto Djédjé “Ziboté (Meistro Sol Power Dub)”

Keep the summer going with this groovy, dubby slice of Ivory Coast soul. The original was  a big hit in its day — Meistro upped the tempo, added a ton of tight percussion, some subby bass, and got loose with some spacey dub effects. Should rock a tropical dance floor near you.

Check out Ernesto rockin it live on Ivory Coast television below. Be sure to wait for the slick dance moves that start at around 3:40

New Sol Power joint: Arbé De Cadjau (Meistro Sol Power Rework)

Check out Meistro’s dance floor work out of Arbé De Cadjau by the Cabo Verde artist Nhú de Ped’Bia. Don’t know much about the artist, but this slice of synthy, disco-y, funk we think was released sometime between 1978 and 1981. Meistro recently got his hands on the LP, loved the track, and beefed it up for today’s dance floors. Summer time vibes!
