Kasai Allstars' wild new album now on preorder


The long-awaited 2nd LP by the mindblowing Congotronics collective from Kinshasa, DRC, will come out as a 2CD and a limited-ed. vinyl



Filmed during the recordings, "The Chief's Enthronement", the first video off the album was premiered on Pitchfork.

It's exhilarating just to watch this much physical work from a musician."

The 2CD and 1LP versions of "Beware the Fetish" can now be preordered HERE
