The West London institution's winter schedule also includes Kassem Mosse, Ricardo Villalobos and Tapes.
The run began with Rang'ala: New Recordings From Siaya County, Kenya by Ogoya Nengo & The Dodo Women's Group, which hit the shelves on Friday, November 7th. The label has announced a further nine upcoming records, though only one—The Golden Boat by Glasgow harmony singing group The Crying Lion—will come out before Christmas.
Several more releases are slated for January and February 2015. There will be a double-pack from Sex Tags Mania co-founder DJ Sotofett called Drippin' For A Tripp (Tripp-A-Dubb-Mix). Each side of the record contains a different collaboration, with Jaakko Eino Kalevi, Phillip Lauer and Versatile Records founder Gilb'R among the artists involved. (You can check out the tracklist below.)
Another double 12-inch release comes from Insanlar, the Istanbul-based trio of Hogir, Baris K and Cem Yildiz—that one comes backed by two long Ricardo Villalobos reworks. A set of three Kassem Mosse remixes of Simone White is also on the way: eagle-eyed readers will have spotted KM's version of White's "Flowers In May" in Lowtec's recent RA Podcast.
A new album from Moritz Von Oswald Trio (featuring Tony Allen on drums) called Sounding Lines is set for an early 2015 release. Berlin artist Tapes has a 12-inch coming out, too—that one's called Datura Mystic and features a contribution from Wareika Hill Sounds. You can also expect a compilation called Early Recordings Of Singers From The Levant, comprising music from the 1910s and '20s; a self-titled retrospective of Japanese jazz and blues singer Maki Asakawa; and an LP called Christians Catch Hell: TK Gospel.
Ogoya Nengo & The Dodo Women's Group are currently on a European tour, with dates lined up in Kraków, Hamburg, Düsseldorf and Amsterdam over the coming months. (Full listings are below.)
