Papa Wemba decided to support Riigo Makengo, Bob Masua “R.I.P.” & Jhimmy Mukelenge in their war against “foreign” musicproducers (Jean Pierre Saah of JPS Production & Simon Ndonang of SIPE Production) and the French (Bodinat of Sonodisc) who were “stealing” their market and musicians. Papa Wemba always stated in his interviews that Congolese people have to control their music business themselve. Papa Wemba  was a patriot when he decided to let Rigo Makengo produce the album of Nouvelle Ecriture and not Sonodisc, he decided to let it record in Kinshasa af studio Meko to really show the of his country. It was recorded shortly after the split in Ethopia with Ramazani, Bendoson & Pompom Miyake. When they finished the album they went to tour 8 months in Europe and went to correct some solo partitions and vocals and also adding mabanga. With them also performing at Zenith & Olympia and the album being released in December 2000.

9.01 min Jimmy Mukelenge attacking indirectly Jean Pierre Saah for laundering his money of the maffia he was doing

Bass and solo were alright. However the programming of the drums and synthe is borderline terrible. I'm a big fan of the album regardless

Lots of RIPs for the album contributors, pretty sad

I thought A La Une was recorded in Studio Ndiaye, judging by the programmed drums.

No wonder why the quality is trash

When you compare it to the sound quality on albums like Couvre-Feu and Intervention Rapide, which were recorded in Kin and probably mixed in Kin, it doesn't sound too bad. Probably because it was mixed in France.
