Various 'Mr Bongo Record Club Vol 5' 2xLP
It's hard to believe it's up to Volume 5 of Mr Bongo's renowned Record Club series. Curating these compilations, where they share their latest musical discoveries and old favourites from the global stage, is always a labour of love.
This selection is less dancefloor-driven than our previous volumes, as fewer opportunities for live events drove us to explore other paths and styles in the musical spectrum. But, whether you're DJing for a kitchen or a club, there is still a generous serving of spicy dancefloor magic.
For Volume 5, they looked to a broad church - from Brazil to Cuba, Ghana, Jamaica, Japan, Mauritania, South Africa, Sweden, Trinidad and Tobago, the UK, and the US. They've pulled songs from the 70s up to the present day and feature a stellar cast of artists. There’s an exclusive track from Sven Wunder which was recorded solely for this compilation. There's also a track from Admin which was released as a private press 7" at the start of 2021 and one they felt was far too good to only be available for the lucky few. You’ll also discover one of the most treasured Gyedu Blay Ambolley productions, a full-force African disco colossus!
