jaribu afrobeat arkestra - jaribu

blazing horns in unison and a slightly awry choir come together, work in opposite directions, completing a true rhythmically woven carpet with the tight rhythm section's network: multi-layered, close-knitted and nearly impenetrable.

he eight japanese musicians led by masamichi ishikawa play more funk and jazz than the nigerian afrobeat originals fela kuti and tony allen did: a swift flute, a blazing trumpet playing and extensive solos from the very beginning. you've gotta love it!

the album will be released on vinyl, cd and digital download. the double-gatefold vinyl lp is limited to 500 copies and comes with a full album download code.

the kutimangoes - afro-fire

what would it sound like if fela kuti, charles mingus and ornette coleman formed a band in copenhagen? inspired by these artists, the kutimangoes play their very own mix of afrobeat, eclectic jazz, soul and blues.

well established names and new faces have come together to create some music that sounds like nothing else, with a focus on a strong groove and pure, unadultered energy. the 6-piece band counts drums, percussion, saxophones, trombones, keyboards, fender rhodes in a playful mix where the musicians change instruments from song to song.

the vinyl lp is limited to 500 copies and comes with a full album download code.

various - movements 6

the movements saga started in 2005 by music maven tobias kirmayer. today, he proudly releases the 6th volume of this essential series. though the track listing still contains amazing music you may never hear elsewhere, the series has matured since its first volume. the track selection has become more open minded, compiling ballads and soul-jazz tunes, even proto-disco in addition to the rare funk tramp fans expect. Tracks are selected in chronological order so that the listener may get an impression of the development of the art form from jazz to rhythm and blues to rock & roll to soul and of course - funk.
