Ata Kak — DaaNyinaa

from Obaa Sima (1995?)

When I first heard this I was in a stupor for seven minutes—what the hell is this?

It’s Ghanaian highlife singer Ata Kak rap-singing on top of clubby techno beats and shabby synth piano, with a few Michael-Jackson-esque shrieks thrown in—and released on CASSETTE. This shit is old. And it’s some of the catchiest stuff I’ve heard in recent memory.

I first heard this track on Dent May's Journey Through the Nite mixtape for Vice Magazine, which is highly danceable and highly recommended. The original source is of course none other than the unbeatable blog Awesome Tapes from Africa—but you might want to grab the remastered album, here.
