A little over a year ago, we watched Tony Allen effortlessly chop it up with The Good, The Bad & The Queen at the Levi’s/FADER Fort in Texas, wearing his shades and paying little mind to the task at hand. GBQ songs are great, but it’s not like they’re percussive workouts or anything. But surely a bunch of people heard them and made the effort to check for Tony’s epic back catalogue, and now another reason to pay him his dues is out. Lagos Shake: A Tony Allen Chop Up compiles a bunch of FADER favorites’ recent 12″ remixes of Allen jams including Bonde do Role, Carl Craig, Hypnotic Brass Ensemble, Diplo, Son Palenque De Colombia, et al. We got Diplo’s “Fuji Ouija” and Son Palenque De Colombia’s “Samba” for you below, but check samples of the rest and buy the album at Honest Jon’s.
