Secret Agent
Secret Agent
'There is no question that Tony Allen is a genius, one of the greatest percussionists in the history of popular music' - The Guardian'Secret Agent,' the first World Circuit/Nonesuch release for Nigerian Afrobeat legend, drummer Tony Allen, has already received ecstatic reviews from critics in Europe where it was released in early June of this year. Metro UK declared that 'the latest album from Lagos born drumming ace reasserts his status as keeper of the Afrobeat key' while Observer Music Monthly said, 'If you're wondering why Afrobeat is hip, start here.'Tony Allen has long been acknowledged as Africa's finest kit drummer and one of the continent's most influential musicians. His playing draws on four different styles - Highlife, soul/funk, jazz and traditional Nigerian drumming - a uniqueand mighty sound. Together with Fela Kuti (with whom he played for 15 years) Allen co-created Afrobeat - the hard driving, horn rich, funk-infused, politically insurrectionary style, which became a dominant force in African music and such, and an influence worldwide. Afrobeat is currently enjoying an upsurge of interest around the world and for fans of hip-hop, funkand jazz, Tony Allen, holder of the Afrobeat flame, is today revered as its seminal living figure.'Secret Agent,' produced by Allen himself, was recorded with his hard-schooled touring band, which comprises musicians from Nigeria, Cameroon, Martinique and France. The music is squarely in the Afrobeat tradition - combining rhythmic tenorguitar, funky keyboards, soulful call and response vocals, and fat, full-throated hard-riffing horns - with a few twists (including keyboard player and arranger Fixi's accordion on some tracks). At its heart of course, is the beat itself, even more prominent now than it was in Fela Kuti's legendary band Afrika 70. Allen drives the music on, straight as an arrow, in a loose-limbed ragged shuffle, fusing the cross rhythms into one irresistible forward motion. The songs on Secret Agent stay true to Afrobeat's original, trademark embrace of protest lyrics. 'Pariwo' (shout, makesome noise) and 'Elewon Po' (too many prisoners) urge resistance to oppression. Others like 'Nina Lowo' (money is to be spent) and 'Atuwaba' (no matter if things are bad, they'll get better), are based on traditional folk proverbs. Some are irresistible exhortations to party - 'Ijo' (dance) and 'Alutere' (the message the drums transmit) celebrate Afrobeat ingeneral and Allen's genius in particular. 'Fela had a different way of writing,' says Allen. 'He wrote like a singer. I write like a drummer.'Tony Allen will tour North America early this summer. In the meantime, 'Secret Agent' is an invitation from this extraordinary drumming force to look for the familiar in the seemingly exotic. As Q Magazine (UK) put it, 'At nearly 70, the man Brian Eno reckons is perhaps the greatest drummer that ever lived is reveling in his heritage, and it's contagious.'

Tony Allen: An Autobiography of the Master Drummer of Afrobeat
Tony Allen: An Autobiography of the Master Drummer of Afrobeat
Tony Allen is the autobiography of legendary Nigerian drummer Tony Allen, the rhythmic engine of Fela Kuti's Afrobeat. Conversational, inviting, and packed with telling anecdotes, Allen's memoir is based on hundreds of hours of interviews with the musician and scholar Michael E. Veal. It spans Allen's early years and career playing highlife music in Lagos; his fifteen years with Fela, from 1964 until 1979; his struggles to form his own bands in Nigeria; and his emigration to France.Allen embraced the drum set, rather than African handheld drums, early in his career, when drum kits were relatively rare in Africa. His story conveys a love of his craft along with the specifics of his practice. It also provides invaluable firsthand accounts of the explosive creativity in postcolonial African music, and the personal and artistic dynamics in Fela's Koola Lobitos and Africa 70, two of the greatest bands to ever play African music.

Each of the tracks on Black Voices explodes with positive energy and irresistible grooves, yet there are also social criticisms and observations running underneath the stunning musical arrangements.

Inspiration Information, Vol. 4
Inspiration Information, Vol. 4
Strut's 'inspiration information? Series moves on from the critically acclaimed mulatu astatke / the heliocentrics collaboration with the fourth album in the series, a mouthwatering head to head between finnish maverick jimi tenor and afrobeat drumming legend, tony allen! Jimi tenor remains a fascinating enigma in modern day music. Consistently one of the best and most unpredictable live artists around, his work since his breakthrough album 'intervision' (warp, 1997) to a series of afro-based albums with his band kabu kabu. Tony allen continues to attract new fans as one of the greatest drummers alive today. Celebrated as the creator of the afrobeat rhythm and a lynchpin of fela kuti's africa 70 band, his recent work has included the good, the bad & the queen collaboration with damon albarn and his first album for world circuit records released earlier this year, 'secret agent'. Recorded at lovelite studios in berlin in november 2008, with further sessions this year in finland and paris, this tenor / allen collaboration whips up a raw, heavy analogue sound mixing the full range of allen's afrobeat repertoire with tenor's off-kilter brew of dark humour, tongue-in-cheek lyrics and tight, firing musicianship. The sessions involved key members of tenor's kabu kabu band. Tenor's trademark saxophone and range of home-made instruments rub shoulders with vintage keyboards and traditional african percussion to create a 'no rules' set that brings the best out of both artists. The resulting album is one of the best recordings that both artists have produced in recent years, topical, biting, funny and always funky, experimental but never straying from 'the one', this is another high quality addition to the 'inspiration information' series!

N.E.P.A. [Vinyl]
N.E.P.A. [Vinyl]
Amazing album from Fela's long-time drummer Tony Allen, originally released in 1984. This officially licensed reissue holds an extra track previously unreleased on vinyl called Olokun!Never Expect Power Always (aka N.E.P.A.) is largely a biting criticism and mocking of the Nigerian Electrical Power Authority, rife with corruption and poor service. It starts with the title track, packing a definite Afro-beat punch and a tighter arrangement than would normally be expected from Fela. Electro-claps stand as part of the percussion line, adding to a more modern look at what Afro-beat was becoming. This is followed by an even further modernized piece of Afro-beat, as the title track is given a dub mix. When One Road Close has a similar pace, and is similarly followed by a dub remix, complete with the necessary space-effects reverb. And to make this reissue extra special the track Olokun, never released on vinyl before, is included.This is the peak of electronic Afro-beat! If you didn't pick the album up the first time around, this is a good time to get it.
