Déni Shain's 'Ghana Mixtape' for Analog Africa covers afrofunk, highlife, afrobeat and everything in between.
We've long been fans of Analog Africa and their consistent excavation of great sounds from across the continent. How could we forget their Africa Airways compilation? Today the German-based label dropped a true musical gem in the form of a Ghanaian mixtape spanning afrobeat, highlife, afrofunk and everything in between. Behind the mastertape/vinyl-pooled mix is AA friend Déni Shain, a French/Mexico-based DJ/producer with a taste for funky organ synths, claves and punchy brass riffs.
