A Lagos Something



 Reckon they’re calling this stuff ‘Afrobeats’ in the UK, though in my African-rich corner of the midwest, folks typically refer to it in terms of specifics: “Senegalese Hiphop”, “Electronic Coupe Decale”, “Dancehall from Ghana”, and so forth. Self appointed genre spokesman Abrantee would likely tell you it’s the fact that these local styles are partying together in the same mixes which makes it worthy of novel nomenclature, and really, who are we to argue?

 While it often bears lots in common with the dance preset-heavy radio rap that’s been dominating US airwaves for the past decade or so, the genre’s best selectors frequently transform it into something so aggressively funky, it raves every bit as hard as most UK hardcore. In addition, African accents sound surprisingly awesome when autotuned:

 The mixes I’ve picked up at my friendly neighborhood Nigerian grocery aren’t quite so hype as Selecta Maestro’s, though they provide ample testimony to something I’ve believed for years now: Africa is the Future.
