URGENT HELP NEEDED - Party Playlist suggestions - AFROBEAT / SKA

Hi guys.

I'm tasked with providing the music at a party in the next 24 hours and I could really do with some help.

The party goers are into their african dance and drumming so the flavour is a world music / ska one:

Can anyone suggest any winning tracks?

To give you a flavour so far i've got:

Afrobeat - Fela Kuti, Tony Allen

Gypsybeat - Balkan Beatbox, Antibalas

African Rock - Amadou and Mariam

Latin - Rodrigo y Gabriela

Ska - Toots & the Maytals

IF YOU CAN SPARE A THOUGHT I WOULD APPRECIATE YOUR SUGGESTIONS!

TRACK NAMES AND ARTISTS IF YOU WILL...

Dont know if this is any good for you but there was a House Music Movement called Africanism which had House Producers working with some well respected African musicians to create some great tunes

Anything fron On-U Sound System Record labeleg Dub Syndicate (one of my fave tunes this from my messed up youth)EDIT - this track is a MUST - awesome or Tackhead but Tackhead may be a bit too industrial hardcore dub

Maybe Aphex Twin
Which mixes nicely with this - Ozric Tentacles or this (also Ozrics)
