William Onyeabor has emerged as one of the most important people in electronic music, making records reputedly as good as the ones coming out of New York at the same time in the mid seventies to early eighties, the golden age of dance music.
William is singular in exciting both musicians and the general public alike. One really does feel quite fortunate to live at a time when music like this has been found, documented and shared using the wonders of modern technology as in the following “cannot recommend highly enough” mini-documentary.
The brilliant news about the album release, is that it contains all his albums in one package.
I know the album has been out for a little over a year, but it seems a lot of articles in blogs and news websites seem to have “obtained” their information from the video in this post.
