Description

We have this electronic dance floor banger from Zaire “Nakombe Nga” by Les Choc Stars in stock. Comes with the largely unheard Belgium new beat version on the flip from the Teknokrat's. Both tracks were originally released in 1989 and this is the first time they appear together on 12". Reissue co-curated with John Gomez

The music on this winning double-sider was written by Tony Baron and Gery François, two Belgian producers that were involved in several musical projects on the New Beat scene in the 1980s. They worked under many aliases and recorded the Teknokrat’s haunting “What Did She Say?” at the famous Studio Madeleine in Brussels in 1989. Prompted by Jean Martin from Espera Records, Baron adapted the music into a further two songs to be released that year, Virginity’s melancholic “The Key”, and the surprising but ear catching collaboration with the label’s soukous stars, Ben Nyamabo’s Les Choc Stars Du Zaire. It is still a mystery how the seeds were planted for the one-off pairing that culminated in the electronic soukous bomb “Nakombe Nga”.
