Freestyle lay down a marker for African Party, their upcoming Ginger Johnson retrospective with this crucial 7" sampler. If you are not familiar with Ginger that's probably because he's an unsung hero of promoting African music in Europe; arriving in London from Nigeria in the late 40s, Johnson established himself as the pre-eminent Afro-Latin percussionist in Europe by the '60s. Dip into his discography and you'll uncover credits on tracks for Rolling Stones and Quincy Jones, whilst Ginger also acted as mentor to a young Fela Kuti. Freestyle seem to have timed this Ginger Johnson & His African Messengers 7" perfectly to arrive just as the sun hits London and listening to the vibrant percussive bump of "I Jool Omo" has us craving the forthcoming album.
