ALL PROFITS GO TO NIGERIAN CHILDRENS CHARITIES (As chosen by Lo-Fi Odysseys).

The UK’s LO-FI ODYSSEYS bring us the first beat tape in the ‘Palm Wine Beats’ collection. The best Nigerian Music, interwoven with snippets of Nigerian pop culture, this collaboration between POST/POP and SOUL LABELS shows that you CAN make an authentic African music tape on Western labels.

Daniel Oduntan of Lo-Fi Odysseys has compiled an important work of Nigerian history that embodies his childhood, growing up surrounded by the music of his family’s culture on tape and vinyl. Beat tapes are classic streams of consciousness, always unpredictable and in this case, also educational. You will find the true Nigerian greats, mixed in with some surprising and welcome additions, making a truly unique African beat tape for the 21st century.

we made sure the artwork mirrored Nigerian tapes from the 70s/80s.

If you are sick of so-called “African” tapes that were compiled by white guys from New York appropriating African music and taking all the credit, then Palm Wine Beats Vol 1 will be a breath of fresh air.
