Rediscover the Afro Rock Magic of Remi Kabaka’s Son of Africa on Vinyl, Now on Double LP at 45 RPM


BBE Music has breathed new life into a rare gem of an album by Afro Rock pioneer Remi Kabaka. The highly sought-after original pressing of Son of Africa has been known to fetch a staggering £700 on resale, making it a treasure for DJs and crate diggers.

In a fascinating twist, this vinyl reissue is not only a double LP, but it’s also cut at 45 RPM, offering a slew of benefits for audiophiles and music enthusiasts alike. These advantages include improved sound quality, better signal-to-noise ratio, increased dynamic range, enhanced stereo separation, and longer-lasting records. All these factors contribute to a more immersive and enjoyable listening experience.

The reissue’s exceptional sound quality can be attributed to Grammy-nominated mastering engineer Frank Merritt from The Carvery Studios. Merritt employed a “less is more” approach, resisting the urge to modernize the album’s sound by boosting it excessively. Instead, he focused on correcting the low-end frequency and warming up the low mids and subs. This meticulous process resulted in an album that not only remains a cornerstone of the Afro Funk genre but also serves as a testament to the power of technology in preserving and enhancing music.
