With this release, Comb & Razor Sound launches its exploration of the colorful world of popular music from Nigeria, starting with the post-disco era of the late 1970s and early 80s. Tip!!
The years between 1979 and 1983 were Nigeria�s Second Republic, when democracy finally returned
after twenty-three years of uninterrupted military dictatorship. They were also the crest of Nigeria�s oil boom, when surging oil prices made the petroleum-producing country a land of plenty, prosperity and profligacy. The influx of petrodollars meant an expansion in industry and the music industry in particular. Record companies upgraded their technology and cranked out a staggering volume of output to an audience hungry for music to celebrate the country�s prospective rise as global power of the future.
While it was a boom time for a wide variety of popular music styles, the predominant commercial
sound was a post-afrobeat, slickly modern dance groove that retrofitted the relentless four-on-thefloor bass beat of disco to a more laidback, upbeat-and-downbeat soul shuffle, mixing in jazz-funk, synthesizer pop and afro feeling. At the time, it was still mostly locally referred to as �disco,� but has since been recognized as its own unique genre retrospectively dubbed �Nigerian boogie.� A Brand New Wayo: Funk, Fast Times and Nigerian Boogie Badness collects 15 pulsing Nigerian boogie tracks in a lovingly compiled package chronicling one of the most progressive and creative eras in the history of African popular music.
