John Armstrong was probably the first UK selector to present fully-focussed tropical dance music events, with 10-year weekly residencies (1984-1994) at the legendary Bass Clef Jazz Club in Hoxton Square, playing a mix of Afro, zouk, Brazilian beats, Konpas, reggae, dancehall, soul, soca, salsa, afro-cuban, hip hop and jazz – even Punjabi bhangra for a while.
John Armstrong released the Afrobeat Brasil compilation on BBE Music in 2017: https://www.bbemusic.com/downloads/afrobeat-brasil/
