CD


4.50 32

A Belgian take on the Congotronics vibe – not done in the same musical style necessarily, but definitely grabbing that great spirit for homemade instruments and unique stylistic hybrids! There's a punky, funky sort of vibe going on here – but one that also has more laidback qualities too – almost as if the Beastie Boys spent a lot of time dabbling in world music – coming up with their own unique instruments and sounds, and delivering them with a brash, youthful sort of approach! And while the approach doesn't always hit home, there's plenty of playfully creative moments on the set – almost an update of older European experiements by Aksak Maboul. Titles include "Beni B", "Otanato", "Stoemp", "Bruges", "1815", "Couque De Dinant", and "3 Regions 3 Communautes".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Vampi Soul (Spain), 1970s/1980s. New Copy Gatefold
Seminal sounds from Son Palenque – one of the funkiest, earthiest groups to ever come from the Colombian scene – and an ensemble who draw so much inspiration from African styles, they've really found a musical bridge across the Atlantic! There's a fair bit of Afro Funk in the mix here, ... CD

Skeletal Essences Of Afro Funk – 1969 to 1980
Analog Africa (Germany), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy
The title gets it perfectly right on this sweet little set – as the grooves are raw and stripped down – often just to the core elements of Afro Funk! The music may be the most hard-hitting we've ever heard from this legendary combo – and it's served up beautifully in this well-sel ... CD

Afro Fire
Tramp (Germany), 2014. New Copy
An Afro Funk combo, but one who really open up their groove, too – mixing in some great outside instrumentation that still stays close to the roots! The core combo is a sextet with a really firey brace of saxes in the lead – a pair of players, one of whom sometimes shifts to flute ... CD

Ibibio Sound Machine
Soundway (UK), 2014. New Copy Gatefold
A really fresh group with a very unique sound – a combo that's partly rooted in older Afro Funk modes, but who also deliver their groove with kind of a leaner, New York street soul vibe as well! The album's cover image really gets the groove right – as the vintage is more 70s through ... CD

Heavenly work from the enigmatic Laraaji – a musician who's best known for his ambient collaboration with Brian Eno, but who's also recorded a lot of sounds on his own! The package is the first we've ever seen to bring Laraaji's talents to light this strongly – as it not only features ... CD

Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy 2CD
