Afro NationalTemedi Oh/Den Kick ... 7-inch
No Wahala Sounds (UK), Early 70s. New Copy ... $8.99
Two great tracks by this group from Sierra Leone! "Temedi Oh" has this fast-moving groove that's totally wonderful – followed by guitar that riffs along in quick time with the pulsating bass, and topped with a vocal call that's like icing on the cake! "Den Kick" is a bit ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ ApostlesBanko Woman/Faith Luck & Music ... 7-inch
Cultures Of Soul, Mid 70s. New Copy (pic cover)... Just Sold Out!
Fast funky grooves from The Apostles – one of the few 70s Afro combos who could maybe go head to head with the sharpest American funk acts of the time! "Banko Woman" is a wickedly quick barrage of basslines, snapping percussion, and very cool guitar – a tune that's got a bit ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Bacao Rhythm & Steel BandXxplosive/Burn ... 7-inch
Big Crown, 2018. New Copy ... $8.99 9.98
Maybe some of the most explosive steel drum sounds you'll ever hope to hear – but that's what we've always expected from the mighty Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band! "Xxplosive" is funky, but in a nice slow-stepping way – with the bassline really carving out the groove, as ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Doctor NativoBugiganga Tropical Vol 2 – Guatemaya/Sabrosura ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $11.99
An interesting little single – one that definitely lives up to the Tropical Diaspora label's name – given all the many elements moving together in the grooves! "Guatemaya" was recorded in Belize, but has this slow-stepping groove that's almost mellow cumbia – but ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

EL V & The GardenhouseEl Doctor/Tamarita (colored vinyl) ... 7-inch
Tropical Diaspora (Germany), 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $5.99
"El Doctor" is a lively little number with a nice hint of revolution – performed here by a combo from Italy, but with a very South American vibe! The percussion is upbeat, the horns punch along with the groove, and the rolling lyrics are nice and compelling – and the flipside ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Ikebe ShakedownAssassin/View From Above ... 7-inch
Colemine, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99 7.98
Heady Afro Funk from Ikebe Shakedown – a tight little tune that sums up everything the group does so well – with sharp riffing guitar in the rhythms, lots of lively percussion, and horn parts that really flesh out the mood! "View From Above" is deeper funk overall – ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Kakai KilonzoMama Sofi (parts 1 & 2) ... 7-inch
No Wahala Sounds (UK), Early 80s. New Copy ... $8.99
Early 80 benga from Kakai Kilonzo – done in a style that has this fantastic bassline that kind of bubbles, dips, and inflects along in this almost bubbly sort of way – while Kakai sings out the lead lyric in a raspy vocal with a bit of backing – and guitar lines bubble up to ring ...

Kou Keri KouCanto Negro/Cerbatana ... 7-inch
Electric Cowbell, 2018. New Copy ... $6.99
A Spanish group, but one who draw inspiration from all over the globe – as they criss-cross Southern Hemisphere sounds from both sides of the Atlantic on "Canto Negro" – a tune that's got a nice sing/songy groove! "Cerbatana" is even deeper – a rich tune with ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record

Philophon (UK), 2019. New Copy ... $11.99
Legendary Ethiopian singer Alemayehu Eshete joins the Polyversal Souls here – adding his tremendous vocals to "Addis Abeba Bete", in a way that makes the tune the coolest thing the group has ever recorded!

So-OnsTej/Short Shrift ... 7-inch
Transistor Sound, 2018. New Copy ... $8.99
A nice little Afro Funk style jam from The So-Ons – representing the LA, with an early for African percussion & rhythms! "Tej" cooks over a steady rhythm, horns and a really nice spindly guitar groove. "Short Shrift" carries a similar path of the other side, but the ...

Tanzania Albinism CollectiveWhite African Power (We Live In Danger)/Stigma Everywhere ... 7-inch
Third Man, 2018. New Copy (pic cover)... $5.99
A stylistic boundary pushing couple of tracks by Tanzania Albinism Collective – raw percussion, chanted vocal driven East African folk music unlike any we've heard before, and all the more compelling for it! The group is an ad hoc combo of singers and players from Ukerewe's Standing Voice ... (Funky 45's, Global Grooves) read more 7-inch, Vinyl record
