Acayouman - Funky Reggae 12" OG

    We are very glad to offer this ultra rare cleary impossible to find caribbean electro funk-reggae 12"Holy Grail by Acayouman, this band formed in Martinique in the early 80’s by musician/composer Dominique Durepaire. They recorded this never commercially released 12” in 1984 with the help of their friends, the sound engineer/musician Jean-Pierre Bulot and Joël Heloise (from Frégate Orchestra / Syn-Ka) with no other ambition than playing the music they felt in love with and discovered during their many trip to Miami, U.S.A. Very far from the zouk scene that was overwhelming the music industry in the French West Indies, they created their own sound strongly influenced by American soul, the boogie and electro productions from the East Coast and even Jamaican reggae. With Take You Down, a surprising US electro funk inspired title, and the monster hybrid Funky Reggae who mixes digital reggae – tinted with Creole lyrics - caribbean rhythms and evolves into a monster electro funk dancer track, this 12’’ sounds unique compared to any production from the French West Indies from that period. Also includes Soul Music a nice funk track that does not features on the recent repress on BeauMonde. Record is EX cover is strong VG ++ with used spine no split. Almost impossible to find !
