It’s an essential & beautifully illustrated guide to uber-cool labels like Habibi Funk, AnalogAfrica, Teranga Beat, Glitterbeat, and  Far Out Recordings, based on Sophie’s groundbreaking interviews & dissertation for her degree at SOAS. Catch the AWIL team roundtable discussion about crate-digging, vinyl revival, record-collecting, and the unprecedented success of independent labels that are propelling world grooves into the mainstream! Also on this AWIL, an exclusive sneak preview of the forthcoming Strut Records vintage compilation ‘AlefaMadagascar’, brought in by special guest Quinton Scott from Strut Records!
