The Apples
Deep Funk

The-Apples_Deep-Funk

«The Apples was a group of young guys, an Ivorian vocalist/lead guitarist, The Nnaji brothers on bass and 2nd guitar and Frank Ikpefuran who handled the drums. “Mind Twister” is a spacy melodious funky masterpiece produced by Mr Odion Iruoje in 1978. Out on Odion Livingstone on the 2nd of June.»
 

The Identicals
Akwa Kayi Ji Bia Nuwa

The-Identicals_Akwa-Kayi

«This LP is taken from their Rock Exponent LP. This is the only known lp by the group produced by the legendary Mr Odion Iruoje in the mid-70s. A classic afro-rock masterpiece that defies comparison. Very rare.»
 

Ozobby Horn
Do the shake in music

Ozobby-Horn_Do-The-Shake-In-Music

«Very little is known about this group, except it is a holy grail item. A rugged and bared production of hard funk titles rendered in a militant rugged afro style. I love it.»
 

Grotto
Mother to the funk

Grotto_Mother-To-The-Funk

«The young members of this group had played in Ofege, the landmark boy band that launched their psych-funk sound to the world with the seminal, Try and Love, in 1973. This LP was a step in a darker direction, heavy, with a nod to Parliament Funkadelic. Out on Odion Livingstone on the 2nd of June.»
 

Sunny Ojegbalani Ofili
Ofo

Sunny-Ojegbalani-Ofili_Ofo

«This gentleman from the South East of Nigeria, self produced a gem of an album immersed in a militant afro-cultural style. It’s very rare and highly sought after by many collectors. Deep afro.»
