about

Tony Allen completely rewrote the books on what was possible within the AfroBeat genre with his stunning 1999 album from Comet Records, Black Voices.

Throughout Black Voices, Doctor L takes the mesmerizing rythms and musical progressions that Allen creates and spins them into a stunningly modern sound, filling them with bright organ lines, as well as placing the occasional clavinet and more "dub DJ" effects. Such juxtaposition between an old end new sound has never sounded so exciting, and every single song on Black Voices is just as brillant as the next, creating one of the finest, purest "groove" albums ever recorded.
