RIYL: Fela Kuti / William Onyeabor / Orlando Julius / Sony Okosun / Basa Basa / Antibalas / Fontanelles

Label: Lyskestrekk Records

Steamy, hot DIY Afro-Funk direct from the Oslo underground!

This is a reeeal hot tamale, good peeps. True West Coast African 70’s grooves locked and loaded with cosmic vibes, soaked in spicy club sauce and served by spacy dub dogs. Grab a slab, bring it to ur next party, and you’re bound to fill the dancefloor within seconds! It’s that groovalicious, trust me on this one.. As a nice bonus this album is infused with some weird voodoo-magick that offers a high chance of getting laid (% increase based on volume and numbers of tunes played in the club)! So do the people a favour and crank it <3

Both Lyskestrekk (groin pull) Records and Flammer Dance Band was spawned in the depths of Hausmania, an alternative self-governed cultural house in Oslo with deep roots in the art of DIY and general weirdness. I’ve attended a few gigs and clubs at the venue over the years, and I can confirm that there’s no party like a Hausmania party. Til the break of dawn, no rest for the wicked!

NOTE! This is the 2nd pressing of “Flammer”, offered by demand as the original 2018 release is rapidly becoming rougher to come by at a decent price. As with the first, this one is a limited edition of 500 copies (presented in a sleeve with Purple background and orange labels, where the 1st had a Blue sleeve/ white labels).
