19/04/18Atangana Records Reissues The Haitian Singer’s Acclaimed Single “Divizion”

Founded this year by DJ/producer, percussionist and avid record collector Déni Shain (Space Echo, Pop Makossa), Marseille-based Atangana Records is set to drop its eagerly awaited first release on May 4th. Originally issued in 1981 the label's premier 12" features the acclaimed single "Divizion" by Haitian singer Fédia Laguerre along with a remix by French afro-disco collective Voilaaa as well as an additional instrumental cut, which recently premiered on The Ransom Note (listen here).  

Atangana Records is result of almost two decades of musical exploration from Europe (Germany, France, Portugal) to West Africa (Guinea, Burkina Faso), Brazil and Mexico by the self-proclaimed "tropicalist globetrotter" Déni Shain, who now teams up with his partner Thomas Vicente to "to dig, reproduce & transmit cross-cultural music, usually unreachable and/or less known by the public"

And Fédia Laguerre's "Divizion" (available via Bandcamp) is just the right record to get things rolling. Listen to the original below and mark May 4th in your calendars.
