Sofrito International Soundclash: Raw Dancefloor Rhythms From Africa on 2LP
Strut couldn't be happier to have a new collection of incredible music on the way from the expert selectors in Sofrito, their second compilation together. And with a release date in late July of 2012, International Soundclash will come at a perfect time to add some extra heat to the summer. Taking in everything from the bump of ’70s Haitian cadence to the swing of synth-drenched soukous, from the hypnotic refrain of a Guadeloupean carnival rhythm to DIY disco from Cameroon, the compilation reflects the sound of a Sofrito session in full swing.
Hugo Mendez and Frankie Francis have dug incredibly deep to bring you a one-of-a-kind selection of music from Trinidad, Colombia, Dominica, Congo, Cameroun and beyond. Exclusives include the deep Pacifico sound of Grupo Canalon’s "La Zorra y El Perol," a new project from Nidia Góngora, singer with Quantic's Combo Barbaro, a previously unreleased track by UK/Kenyan sensations Owiny Sigoma Band, and a Tropical Treats edit of Haiti’s dynamite "Les Difficiles de Petion-Ville."
Strut also provides special packaging, courtesy of visual maestro Lewis Heriz, who interprets Sofrito's fresh perspective on the world with a specially designed cut-out globe on a pull-out poster to accompany the double LP.
