MY VOTE DEY COUNT (LTD ED LP)

YAABAPHONE


Released: 14 Jul 2014
Country: UK/GHANA


Price: £14.95



The acclaimed My Vote Dey Count now available on on vinyl

The follow-up to 2010's Afrobeast finds Yaaba Funk maturing their high energy modern highlife-meets-afrobeat signature sound. Confident drums and percussion propel Yaaba Funk's dual vocal delivery as afrobeat horn sections stab off the beat making the infectious beat downright contagious. My Vote Dey Count covers all aspects of this Ghanaian focussed collective, with social politics never far from the surface, and a solid dose of African funk, it all comes together to form the unique and powerful sound which is ... Yaaba Funk!

'solid and confident, with musical wit and drive' (fRoots)

'far more accomplished and engaging album than anything recently released by the legendary Kuti clan' ★★★★ (Songlines)

'The Brixton 10-piece’s second album packs a punch from the off' ★★★★ (Independent)

A product of Brixton, Yaaba Funk are London's première 21st century new-Afro group. Ghanaian highlife, cut with a strong dose of afro-broken-beat and more than a hint of dub. Two infectiously energised vocalists, a horn section and the tightest rhythm section this side of Accra are underpinned by analogue bass and African guitar.

NYASH! E GO BITE U 10" VINYL SINGLE

YAABAPHONE


Released: 11 Jan 2010
Country: UK/GHANA


Price: £5.95



Yaaba Funk are a 10-piece Hi-Life/Afro-Funk explosion, a product of Brixton and influenced by 1970s Ghanaian hi-life, the funk of James Brown and UK sounds like Roots Manuva and The Specials. Their floor-filling extravaganza combines the tightest rhythm section this side of Accra, fat analogue basslines, blazing horns, sparkling African and gritty rock guitars. Their first single is a very limited edition double-AA-side 10" vinyl release consisting of the hi-life sound of the late Alhaji K Frimpong classic "Hwe Hwe Mu Na Yi Wo Mpena" and the self-penned live favourite "Nyash! E Go Bite U".
