SIMIGWA (LP)
12" Vinyl UK 08.10.18
gyedu’s first album, released in 1975. super funky highlife tunes here. includes the killer tunes fa no dem ara, this hustling world and akoko ba. the album is written and produced with ebo taylor. gyedu-blay ambolley unleashed his unique brand of -simigwa- music on an eager yet unsuspecting world in 1975 with the release of this, his debut album. suffused with his larger-than-life personality, this lp ia an absolutely irresistable manifesto of his heavy afro-funk simigwa philosophy. long sought after by collectors, academy lp’s and voodoo funk have teamed up once again to revive this incredible record from the vibrant musical scene of 70’s west africa. mastered from the original master tapes and featuring the rather remarkable original sleeve, this is an ultra high-quality reissue that continues the reputation acadamy has built up with its previous releases!

MUDEI DE IDEIA (LP)
12" Vinyl UK 15.12.16
rare brazil album made available again through mr bongo, incl. voce abuso & kabaluere. nice! a truly fantastic record that sounds the way it looks – psychedelic rock, samba-funk and tripped out mpb. features kabaluere as sampled by marcelo d2 on his hit qual e. arranged by rogerio duprat, featuring legendary guitarist lanny gordin. antonio carlos & jocafi were a very successful and famous brazilian writing duo, born in bahia. they worked with the likes of wilson simonal, rosinha de valença, trio mocotó, milton banana, toquinho and more. originally released on rca brazil in 1971, this was the duos debut lp. two versions of the album cover exist in brazil – this, the psyched-out, burnt out version, and a much less exciting photograph of the chaps, pressed to include the single desacato which became a popular hit in brazil and several european countries.

the holy grail of brazilian music. a wicked afro psychedelic album. a joy to listen to from the beginning to the end! highly recommended! tip! pedro dos santos, born in rio in 1919, was a percussionist virtuoso, composer and inventor of instruments that apparently included oddities such as the tamba (electrified bamboo drum) and the mouth berimbau whistle. nicknamed perdo sorongo after the rhythm he invented, that features throughout krishnanda. a highly spiritual man who was regarded as a philosopher by many.

12" Vinyl lp, 180gr UK 04.05.17
this half-speed, deluxe edition released for rsd 2017 features unseen photography from the recording session in a 16 page full-size booklet. the audio source is the continental tapes, mastered at half-speed by the legendary miles showell at abbey road in london – the most stunning reproduction ever made, accentuating the details and nuances that appear throughout this masterpiece.
in our opinion this record is a true and complete masterpiece in every sense of the word, considered by many people to be one of the greatest ever made, regardless of genre. the original continental versions of the album now fetch around $2000.
