Having built its reputation on releasing long-forgotten gems from 70s Africa, especially Benin (including two releases by Orchestre Poly-Rythmo de Cotonou), Analog Africa is moving its focus to another continent altogether for release number seven.

“Mambo Loco” is a compilation of tracks by Anibal Velasquez, the legendary accordionist from Barranquilla in Colombia. In fact, when not crate-digging in Africa, Analog Africa founder Samy Ben Redjeb can often be found in Colombia. This coupled with the fact that many of the tracks presented here have become essential during Analog Africa DJ sets and have set fire to more than one dance-floor, means this new release has all the hallmarks of becoming another Analog Africa classic.
