Wake Up Your Mind

Hot Casa
HC 16

Joni Haastrup's classic, cosmic disco LP is among the best of the best in terms of Afrobeat. What is particularly special about it is its 1978 release date - this was miles ahead of everyone else at that stage of African disco music - and the fact that it was the only piece of music to be released under the artist's real name. On the latter point, these six tunes are perfect for just about any situation requiring a dance.
