LP, Vinyl record album

Really amazing music from this very unique group – a Malian ensemble who mix together elements of Dogon roots with 70s electric touches! At the core, the sound here is very rootsy – lots of percussion and quick stringed instruments – played in cyclical rhythms that are extremely hypnotic. Yet there's also some weird production on the guitar and organ that space things out nicely – never too trippy, but with a slightly cosmic undercurrent that lifts the music up into space – giving things a slightly ethereal quality, even when grooving! Titles include "Kanaga", "Gambari", "Sory Bamba", "Sare Mabo", "N'Do N'Do", and "Kulukutu".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 1975. New Copy (reissue)
The first of the legendary Tony Allen albums – and it's got a killer groove that's very similar to some of the best Fela work of the early 70s!

Funky Pack
Cultures Of Soul, 1976. New Copy (reissue)
A massive set from Nigeria's CS Crew – and a set that definitely lives up to its title!

Trad Vibe (France), 1977. New Copy (reissue)
The second album by Cortex – the obscure French jazz group that's been a favorite of funky collectors for years! The group's got a strong fusion-driven groove on this set – with plenty of tight drumming, hard riffing, and spacey keyboards that give the tunes a nicely soulful finish. ... LP, Vinyl record album
Truth & Soul, 2005. New Copy (reissue)
Easily one of the greatest new funk records of the 21st Century – and a set that goes way beyond some of the cliches that are currently gripping others in the deep funk underground! El Michels Affair have a cool, easygoing style to their music – one that's as much 70s jazz as it is 60s ... LP, Vinyl record album
