A.T.F.A presents Simon’s Slow Music from Africa Mixtape


The incredible specialist spot – Awesome Tapes From Africa – bring forth the Afro Slow beats, which makes a refreshingchange from the slew of “funky Africa” comps floating around the store and online. There’s some absolute killer sounds here folks. Don’t miss it.

“My friend Simon has a pretty impressive collection of vinyl from Africa, well, actually from all over. But he seems to be growing his African selection a lot lately. He sent me this mixtape the other day and I wanted to share it with you people. Dude is on his way to Guinea to make a film about children and music drawing peace pictures. If this very concept strikes your fancy, as it does mine, you should write to Simon and tell him “good luck/you’re mad” at drawingpeace at gmail dot com.” – Thusdayborn (Awesome tapes From Africa)
