Africanism with Soha (DJ Gregory & Julien Jabre)Les Enfants Du Bled (original mix, beat, interlude) ... 12-inch
Yellow (France), 2001. Very Good (pic cover)... $1.99
A pounding groover from the Africanism series! "Les Enfants" has a skipping groove that's very catchy – plain and simple, like the Afro Funk that inspired it, with some strange floating instruments in the mix, sounding a bit like didgeridoo! The "theme" version is nice ... (New Grooves, Global Grooves) read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Allenko Brotherhood EnsembleAllen Fresh (Tony Allen vs. Troublemakers)/Right Here In Front Of You (Tony Allen vs. Unsung Heroes)(voc, inst) ... 12-inch
Comet (France), 2001. Near Mint- ... $4.99
The Allenko Afro Funk series keeps on grooving hard! "Allen Fresh" is a really great number with a heavy Tony Allen groove – lots of snapping drum work, a slow building sound, and a bit of spaciness that keeps the cut interesting, and which adds a bit of a psychedelic finish! ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Allenko Brotherhood EnsembleYoruba Road/Leroy (Tony Allen vs. Boozoo Bajou & Tweak) ... 12-inch
Comet (France), 2001. Near Mint- ... $6.99
One of the best in this great series of modern Afro Funk numbers! Both sides have a warm acoustic feel to them – with plenty of heavy percussion, bits of organ or Fender Rhodes, and horn flourishes over the top. Tony Allen co-wrote both tracks – and the work's right in line with his ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Ubiquity, 2012. Near Mint- ... $16.99
A mix of contemporary club and Afrobeat – served up in a sweet limited edition single! "More Heavy" starts with a bouncing beat, but gets more Afro Funk as things move on – adding in percussion and horns with a nice 70s vibe – then mixing things up even more with some ...

Tony GreyTime Factor/You Are The One ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), Late 70s. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
A great Afro disco groove from Tony Grey – a cut that's got plenty of New York club touches in the mix, and a cool moogy part on the intro that feels like the synth on "Ring My Bell"! Tony's vocals are a lot more soulful, though – and this cut's way more complicated than that ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80Think Africa (orig, radio, bonus beats)/Na Oil (orig, radio, bonus beats) ... 12-inch
Still Music (Germany), 2007. New Copy (pic cover)... $7.99
No fake-funk here, as Seun Kuti's working with the legendary Egypt 80 group – on two tracks that bristle with all the soul and sharp instrumental touches of his father Fela's classics from years back! "Think Africa" has a stepping, skittish groove that's classic Kuti all the way ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Eno LouisMove/Hot Love ... 12-inch
Voodoo Funk (UK), 1979. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $13.99
"Move" is an Afro Funk killer – but unlike anything else you might have heard! The cut's got these riffing guitars that are familiar for the scene, but captured with the sharpness of some South Bronx street jam – with Eno doing these English lyrics that are spoken more than ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Voilaaa (Patchworks)African Music/Decalment (voc, inst)/Problems ... 12-inch
Favorite (France), 2017. New Copy ... $15.99
Three great tracks from one of our favorite Patchworks projects! "African Music" has a song that lives up to its title, but also has the warmly clubby vibe that we love from Voilaaa – which almost makes the whole thing feel like a late 70s post-colonial track recorded in Paris ...

✨✧ Shina Williams & His African PercussionsAgboju Logun (12" mix, LP) ... 12-inch
Strut (UK), Early 80s. New Copy (pic cover)... $12.99 13.99
A sweet Afro Funk classic – served up here in two different versions! The 12" mix is nice and long – and builds slowly as a bassline and keyboards introduce a groove that's almost boogie, but a bit more rough around the edges – which opens the door for trumpets and other ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record
