Synthesize the Soul: Astro atlantic Hypnotica Cape Verde Islands 1973-1988 Various Vinyl LP

Through 18 diverse tracks, this compilation reveals how immigration from the Cape Verde Islands to Europe and the U.S. gave us an alternate history of the electronic music that dominated hearts and minds across the world in the late 1990s. But the story doesn't start in a major Western cultural hub, rather in the small cluster of islands 400 miles off the Senegalese coast, and offers an unparalleled insight into the long-term cultural splendor catalyzed by migration.

Largely overlooked outside the Lusophone realm, Cape Verde's Astro-Atlantic gumbo of instrumentation and rhythms offer a timely lesson of migration's power to produce cultural innovations ahead of its time. This unknown, ultra-progressive sound could not have been perfected without the induction of Cape Verde's artistic human capital into the West.
