VariousBeyond Addis Vol 2 – Modern Ethiopian Dance Grooves Inspired By Swinging Addis (with download) ... LP
Trikont (Germany), 2014. New Copy 2 LPs ... $16.99
The influence of Ethiopian grooves has been strongly felt in the worlds of funk and jazz over the past decade or two – thanks to tremendous global exposure of the sound of the 70s through various reissues and the Ethiopiques compilation series – which has inspired a whole new generation of artists with their sound! That huge influence can definitely be heard here – in a wonderful collection of contemporary cuts brought together by JJ Whitefield – a funky colleague of many of the artists here, and who, like them, have really helped re-shape the sound of funk with a range of global elements. Some of these tracks are from Ethiopian artists, but many more are by American and European acts who've picked up plenty from the generation of Mulatu – and really made a great run with their styles! Titles include "Cave Of Brahma" by The Sorcerers, "Yesega Wat" by Debre Damo Dining Orchestra, "Safari Strut" by Whitefield Brothers, "Lions" by Anbessa Orchestra, "Followed Path" by Karl Hector & The Malcouns, "Stuzzicadenti" by Cosmic Analog Ensemble, "The Biz" by Transgressors, "Musicawi Silt" by The Daktaris, "Ethopino" by Jungle By Night, "The Viper" by Tezeta Band, "Zilzil" by Les Freres Smith, "Cool Runnings" by Onom Agemo & The Disco Jumpers, and "Anbessa" by Akala Wube with Manu Dibango.

✨✧ VariousBeyond Addis – Contemporary Jazz & Funk Inspired By Ethiopian Sounds From The 70s ... CD
Trikont (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
If the sound of Nigeria was a huge influence on funk bands in the previous decade, the sound of Ethiopia has been an even bigger one in recent years – as testified by the huge amount of contemporary work presented in this set – which offers up a very fresh spin on the golden era styles of the 70s! All the cuts here are by younger groups from around the globe – but acts who feel a huge influence from the sorts of sounds presented on the Ethiopiques series – especially the unique hybrids of jazz, soul, and exotic phrasing that made music from Ethiopia so incredible, and unlike anything else taking place on the continent at the time. All the tracks on the set were picked by JJ Whitefield – a funk artist who's given us plenty, and who has also opened up his ears to these sounds – and titles include "La Marche Des Smith" by Les Freres Smith, "Yefikir Woha Timu" by Imperial Tiger Orchestra, "Jawa Jawa (alt take)" by Akale Wube, "Phantom Of The Panther" by The Heliocentrics, "Sem Yelesh" by The Whitefield Brothers, "The Scarab" by Shaolin Afronauts, "Drop It" by Tezeta Band, "Origin Of Man" by Budos Band, "Addis Ababa" by Zafari, and "Girma's Lament" by Karl Hector & The Malcouns.
