PAM Club: 80s Ghana Funk by Julien Lebrun

This week at the PAM Club, the co-founder of Hot Casa Records Julien Lebrun brings us to Ghana with a mixtape full of funky gems from the 80s!

With his colleague Afrobrazileiro, Julien Lebrun created the seminal label Hot Casa Records in 2003. Little by little, the label has been working carefully to reissue largely forgotten gems of African music focused on two thematic compilations dedicated to Togo and the Ivory Coast. With a specialization in Latin and African sounds, the label allows contemporary Africa shine through the vision of musicians such as Vaudou Game, DjeuDjoah and Lieutenant Nicholson and Franck Biyong. Today, the globe-digger takes us to Ghana via a funky selection, meticulously chosen from his record collection. It is a mix along the same lines as his Hot Casa Radio Shows, commented on title by title by the selector himself.
