Released: 5th July 2010 | 2 track africa single
The Real Sounds of Africa have always been one of Africa's top groups. Their music combines Zairean rhumba with mbira music of Zimbabwe to make their own sound 'the real sound of Africa'. Their records Seven Miles High mixed by Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim as he is now) and Get Real mixed by Stomp founders Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas have been successful worldwide. Before that Wende Zako featuring the football anthem Dynamos v Tornadoes (3-3) became Cooking Vinyl's top selling record. Before that their album Harare featuring their other great football song Dynamos v Caps (0-0) was number one all over Africa. The classic world football anthem and the signature tune of BBC 5live's world football show 'Soccer Fan' by The Real Sounds of Africa originally mixed by Norman Cook is remade in a special 2010 World Cup mix. Joined by rappers MC Buzz and Eminemmylou and producer Latest Bill, The Real Sounds create a truly global ecstatic feel of the joys of football. Gaining rave reviews from NME to The Independent, and playing at nearly every major festival in Europe, The Real Sounds of Africa are not to be missed!
