Amazing work from the legendary Mulatu Astatke – one of Ethiopia's funkiest musicians of the 70s, making a rare appearance here on this lost American recording! The album has been a holy grail for years amongst beatheads – loved for its killer blend of weird rhythms, sweet funk, and super-dope vibes – and the grooves on the set are really unique – slow, snakey, and with a sinister, almost other-worldly feel. There's not nearly as much vibes on Mulatu's Ethiopian recordings – and their appearance here really gives the set a nice American sort of twist – almost Roy Ayers meets Sun Ra with a hot dose of African funk thrown in for good measure! Titles include "Chifara", "Munaye", "Kaselefkut-Hulu", "Mascaram Setaba", and "Mulatu".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Pure insanity from the mighty Mulatu – one of his few American albums from the 60s!

EMI/Now Again, 1974. New Copy (reissue)
A landmark album from Musi O Tunya – a set billed as one of the first Zamrock albums, but a record that's also got a fair bit of funk and jazz as well!

Prestige, 1965. New Copy (reissue)
Incredible! This is a stunning set of African-inspired jazzy percussion tracks – similar to some of the work done by Art Blakey on his Orgy In Rhythm albums, but with a lot better horn work, and with an overall conception that's much more unified!

Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1971. New Copy (reissue)
A heady South African group from the early 70s – but one who feel much more like underground funk of the late 60s! The feel here is a garagey blend of instrumental soul and early funk – mixed with with some fuzzier guitar lines that add a nice psychedelic undercurrent, but not in the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Edip Akbayram
Pharaway Sounds (Spain), 1974. New Copy
A seminal debut set from Edip Akbanyram – a 70s Turkish singer whose music is every bit as compelling as arabesk rock by Baris Manco or Erkin Koray! Like both of those artists, Edip mixes older Anatolian roots with a freakier, fuzzier style from the psych generation – mixing electric ... LP, Vinyl record album

Pathe/Soundway (UK), Mid 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Wicked work from Jimmy Mawi – one of the coolest cats to work on the Kenyan scene of the 70s!

Fortuna, 1978. New Copy Gatefold
Cool compelling grooves from Grazia – sung in Turkish, released in late 70s Israel, and a mad mix of styles throughout!
