Disco Highlife Reedit Series Vol 2

Comet presents the 2nd release from its new Disco Highlife series, featuring remastered originals by Ghanaian legends Ebo Taylor & Pat Thomas and disco re-edits by Monsieur Scott and 2 Paris Septembre.

Founder of Comet Records, Eric Trosset started working with those great heroes of West African music, Ebo Taylor & Pat Thomas, back in 2010. Taking on the role of manager/publisher, Comet teamed up with Strut Records and musician/producer Ben Abarbabel Wolff to revive Ebo Taylor‘s international career with a string of album releases. In 2014, Eric collaborated with Pat Thomas & The Kwashibu Area Band on a new album, gathering together the old ‘pals’ (Ebo Taylor, Pat Thomas, Tony Allen) in producer Kwame Yeboah’s studio in Accra and inadvertently creating a new hybrid: Afro-Funk Highlife.

It is with great pleasure that Comet launches this second EP of the Highlife series, a soulful afro touch of new Parisian underground. On Side A comes “Peace On Earth” by Ebo Taylor, a stunning track from the album Twer Nyame, originally released in 1978. “Peace On Earth” is definitely a must have! Monsieur Scott, the Paris based afrobeat scientist comes back with a deep and soulful afro-house remix.

On Side B is “We Are Coming Home” by Pat Thomas, a classic highlife anthem originally released in 1980 on the LP Stage 2. 2 Paris Septembre is an electronic music group composed of two Parisian brothers, raised with the music of Fela Kuti. Their production is a mix of electronic music, afrobeat and hip-hop. “Remixing Pat Thomas was an honor. He’s a true living legend of Highlife afrobeat music.” Until then get funked with their debut rework on Comet and expect a lot more from the pair in the coming months.
