Franck Biyong is a Cameroonian musician, composer and singer, creator of the "Afrolectric" sound fusing Afrobeat, Electro-Funk and Avant-garde Jazz. Here are 4 tunes co-produced with Paris DJs' main man Grant Phabao, extracted from the "Ki I Ye Yi" album they released together in 2012. Driven by a heavyweight spatial sound, this music is the missing link between the bold roughness of Fela Kuti and the melodic sophistication of Manu Dibango.
