Ethiopiques 7″ Box Set

For those of you who are in awe when someone drops an Ethio set, scratching your head, and asking, “how did they get these records?”, this box set is for you. Heavenly Sweetness has reissued some of the finest in the genre that includes all of the best artists: Mulatu Astatké, Girma Béyéné, Mahmoud Hamed, Getatchew Mekuria, and tlahoun Gésséssé. The set itself is six 7″s of double sided heaters out of Ethiopia that you may or may not know. If you are familiar with these great tunes (or just jumping into them), the chaps at HS do a bang up job of representing this very special brand of music. This was originally only available for RSD, but has been made available through the Heavenly Sweetness shop now. In our opinion, a really dope box set. Check out what is on it:

1/ Getatchew Mekuria
A « Antchi Hoye »
B « Shilela»

2/ Girma Béyéné / Mulatu astatké :
A « Yebekagnale”
B “Yegele Tezeta »

3/ Alemayéhu Eshété
A “Afer Yemegnshale”
B “ Chiro Adarie Negne »

4/ Mahamoud Ahmed

5/ Tilahun gésséssé

B “Sima »

6/ Ali Mohamed Birra

B “Sinhanbisin Werri”

This reissue features original artwork, a poster, and of course turntable melters that are featured on the vinyl. We are all about it, and will have to pull the trigger on it because this music is just too good to pass up.
