Music

Manuel Göttsching releases the fascinating proto-techno cut "E2-E4", another Paradise Garage classic. New York sees Walter Gibbons with a splendid mix of the ten minute "Set It Off". Jessie Saunders funks Chicago up and almost launches house music while Juan Atkins releases "Techno City" with Cybotron in Detroit. Africa is never far away in the charts with both Hugh Masekela's "Don't Go Lose It Baby" and Tony Allen, Fela's drummer, who releases "Road Close".
