Hotline :: You Are Mine


Say what ever you want, but there’s no denying that West African funk can shake any dancefloor around the world. When you have the right record in your hands, it’s like a bomb ready to explode and spread the groove to everyone that can hear this magic boogie beat.

Hotline’s “You Are mine” it’s like that. An album recorded at Decca’s studio in Lagos, Nigeria in 1986 and released by the Decca sublabel Blackspot.
This is the only known recorded album by Hotline.

The band was miles ahead of its time. They had a very unique sound with heavy synth moog lines, groovy bass and rudimental mind thinking drums

The band was miles ahead of its time. They had a very unique sound with heavy synth moog lines, groovy bass and rudimental mind thinking drums.The whole atmosphere of their album it’s the thin line between reggae and boogie music, close to many tracks from this period of the Nigerian scene. But here we have to say it again, the sound is unique!

All tracks are killers and you can feel that from the very first moments in each song.
Heavy on the dancefloor, always in demand. Their insane boogie funk reggae tracks gonna explode your mind for real. This rare masterpiece is now double re-issued by the French label Jamwax and the British Soundway. Exclusive photos from Hotline’s personal collection are included.

Fella’s did it in Lagos!
