Berliners Nu Guinea have proven their worth as electronic beat-makers. With this album they focus their efforts around the Afrobeat rhythms pioneered by Tony Allen, a legendary drummer in his own right and perhaps best known for his work with Nigerian musical revolutionary Fela Anikulapo-Kuti. After getting the green light by Allen himself, Comet and Early Sounds Recordings teamed up to release 'The Tony Allen Experiments', the third installation of their Afrobeat Makers Series. It's a pleasing blend of cut-up, reworked and rearranged Allen drumming, mixed in with vintage synths, drum machines and suave electronics.
