Africanism with Soha (DJ Gregory & Julien Jabre)Les Enfants Du Bled (original mix, beat, interlude) ... 12-inch
Yellow (France), 2001. Very Good (pic cover)... $3.99
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

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

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

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

Two sweet West African groovers – back to back on a limited 12" single! First up is this amazing cut from Bazare D Pablo – "Nassima" – a number that leaps around with this really dynamic bassline, while the percussion riffs right through the middle, with plenty of ... read more 12-inch, Vinyl record

Paradise Bangkok/Studio Lam (UK), 2016. New Copy (pic cover)... $9.99
A great return to form for the Paradise Bangkok Molam International Band – stepping out here in a groove that mixes Southeast Asian roots with more contemporary clubby elements – yet all without sounding gimmicky or forced at all! The cut begins with a complicated line played on a ... 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 ...
