Various - Organic Audio Presents Hi-Life
This compilation celebrates the explosion of Afro-house by bringing together 12 recent singles from that are among the most popular in the genre.  

Contributing artists are a mix of the popular and obscure.  Followers of the scene will recognize the names Soul Ascendants, Idjut Boys and Tosca, while Solimoto and The Deal are relative newcomers.  All performers revel in the rhythmic throb that has made Africa a point of inspiration for house music.

Key cuts include DJ Gregory's "Block Party," "Africa Moves Me" from Solimoto, and "Jehlaz," a collaboration between Dennis Ferrer and Jerome Sydenham, who have been major forces in bringing an African influence to house music. Rising star Needs contributes a remix to "The Only Redeemer" by Noiseshaper.

A quality introduction to the field, Hi-Life  is good for curious listeners eager to understand what the fuss is all about.
