Paris DJs followers should be aware by now, we're not joking, every 6th of the month is Kologbo day! Later this year on upcoming 6ths of the month we'll unveil some brand new productions recorded this summer, but until then we're proud to keep on revealing new tunes from Fela's tenor guitar player in Afrika 70 brand new album "Africa Is The Future", to be released at the end of this month.

Today we're presenting "You No Lie", a majestic Nigerian/Ghanean/French/American/German afrobeat collaboration, starring no less than Tony Allen on drums (do we really need to introduce Tony Allen? Fela's drummer and afrobeat rhythm master), Pat Thomas (the golden voice of Ghana, who recently released on Strut Records an essential album with the Kwashibu Area Band and an extensive compilation of his 70s/80s works) and Ayo (the Nigerian singer from the Adunni & Nefretiti band) on vocals, Ben Abarbanel-Wolff on tenor and baritone saxophone and Stu Krause on trumpet (both from Ebo Taylor's Afrobeat Academy and Poets Of Rhythm), Martin Perna on flute (from Antibalas), and Oghene Kologbo playing keys, bass, percussion and guitars. Recorded and produced by Loik Dury (former Radio Nova programmer in the 1990s, now movies soundtracker for Cedric Klapish among others), who mixed it with Grant Phabao (the unstoppable man behind the Paris DJs sound).

"You No Lie" opens the "Africa Is The Future" album that's currently being crowdfunded on the Kiss Kiss Bank Bank website. You have until the end of the month to take part in this release, there's still time left to grab a limited edition translucent green vinyl (250 copies only!) or a marvelous made in France T-shirt (3 different designs are available, the kind of high-quality clothing you'll wear again and again). Don't hesitate to share the campaign around, it's just passed over the 50% of its goal, and Kologbo needs your support now more than ever!
