Awesome Tapes From Africa
Ata Kak’s legendary tape “Obaa Sima” introduced one of the greatest left-field dance floor jammers of all time, “Daa Nyinaa”. Now available on 12″ single for the first time, the song Ata Kak recorded in his Toronto apartment in 1993 lives on. The artist was cloaked in mystery until very recently; he created a joyously idiosyncratic balancing act of highlife, R&B, rap and house music that resonated with listeners many miles and several years away. The single is backed with the tape’s final song, a minimalist electronic instrumental dripping with lo-fi rhythmic soul called “Bome Nnwom”.
Summer Heat, Crazy Beat!!!
