Ignore the genre tag but enjoy this great "afrobeats" mixtape by DJ Abrantee.
<p><strong>DJ Abrantee </strong>was the main protagonist in that sideways <a href="http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/2012/jan/19/the-rise-of-afrobeats" target="_blank">Guardian article</a> on "afrobeats" which, among many generalizations, mistakenly credited him with coming up with the genre tag (a claim Abrantee denied). While we can't overlook <a href="http://africasacountry.com/2012/01/27/the-whole-afrobeats-thing/" target="_blank">the problem</a> of lumping in several, fully separate genres under one vague "afrobeats" mixtape umbrella, we also can't ignore the increasing popularity of these — mainly Nigerian and Ghanaian — dance jams in the UK. Basically, what we're getting at is: ignore the tag, but enjoy this great mix of highly-addictive pop tunes from the likes of <strong>D’Banj, P-Square, Wande Coal, R2Bees, Atumpan, Naeto C</strong> and others mixed by UK selector DJ Abrantee.
