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- ... $2.99
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

Comet (France), 2001. Very Good+ ... $5.99
The last single in the epic series of Allenko Brotherhood releases from Comet – featuring two wonderful sides that are very much in keeping with the series' best work!

Crown Ruler (Australia), 1983. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... $16.99
Electro soul from the Johannesburg – a trio of tracks that's a fair bit different than most of the South African material you might know from the time! "Hay Hay" is a real beat street sort of track – Linn drum beats and Roland keyboards, percolating in a very catchy groove ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

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

Celluloid, 1984. Very Good+ (pic cover)... $9.99
From the "Watto Sitta" album, recorded for Celluloid by griot Foday Musa Suso, who plays mostly kora, inaddition to a variety of other percussion instruments.

Kooyman, Early 2000s/2017. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
The first few numbers we've heard from trombone player Toli and the Femm Nameless group – an all female Afrobeat-inspired combo who made some waves in the fertile Brooklyn live funk scene of early 00s alongside scene legends like Antibalas, the Dapkings and Menhan Street Band but disbanded ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

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 ...

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
