Its is rather unfortunate that this compilation dropped on new year’s day and this is the first I am hearing of it. But better late than never, this projecting budding with familiar and not so familiar names boasts of 18 tracks (add the intro and outro to make 20) of intense music. The samples which is solely from the Ghanian music landscape specifically the hi-life and jazz flavours, takes you to a different plane. I should mention here that the collective at Hobo Truffles are producers on the one part and doubling as an internet based label also. This project aptly titled Ode To Ghana, brings to the table names such as Ben Bada Boom, Boost Phillis, GHprodu, J. Vibes, Ja:Kova, Keor Meteor, KommerzKlaus, LinkRust, Maloon TheBoom, Melodiesinfonie, Mono:Massive, Nomad, Peet, Robot Orchestra, Saint Rock, Sev Seveer, Shuffle Jack, Soulpete and Sterio. This is a beat tape of a different kind and is one for the car stereos. It is also available for free download so go get yours real quick. Turn it up truck volume!
