Livy Ekemezie Official Release January 27th 2017


we are honoured to officially release this music masterpiece by Livinus Ekemezie, a record so ahead of its time, a document of how sound travels. Released in 1982 on a private label, this sound has travelled from Goddy Oku’s Godiac Studios in Aba, to the dance floors of Lagos, Port Harcourt, Berlin, London, Paris, Detroit and New York. The vocals are undeniably Nigerian, however the sound of the record is harder to place. This was Livy’s idea and he achieved it wholesomely. He wanted to travel in sound and he did. This holy-grail lp has been on the top 5 lists of most collectors and diggers of afro-boogie.

Official release date is 10th March 2017, pre-orders available from Strut/K7.
