The ever-provocative Strut label’s been on a roll lately with a
series of eye- and ear-openingglobe-trotting, genre-bending collaborations –
including Mulatu Astatke & The
Heliocentrics, Horace Andy &
Ashley Beedle and Sly &
Robbie & Amp Fiddler. The label has also been responsible for those
amazing vintage worldbeat compilations we’ve been reviewing at BLURT: Black Rio Vol.2  and Nigeria ’70. (Watch the BLURT site soon for our
review of their Ze Records overview Ze
30.)

 

Now Strut’s announced the latest volume: Inspiration Information will feature legendary Fela Kuti drummer
and Afrobeat pioneer Tony Allen
along side Finnish electronic / jazz maverick Jimi Tenor.  As the label advises us, candidly, “The is a raw
and forward-thinking take on Afrobeat which will thrill fans looking for the
next evolution in worldly future funk.” Coming soon – watch this space for
details.
