Contemporary Afrofunk doesn't get more authentic or progressive than this: The Heliocentrics have teamed up with Nigerian legend Orlando Julius to revisit some of his past creations and lay down some of Julius's earliest work that has never been recorded before! The result is a timeless sound that carries all the hallmarks and urgency of the '70s while dynamically reflecting modern dancefloor arrangements and production standards. Peppered with psychedelic twists, raw analogue grit and an infectious funk that can't be denied., this is a proper schooling from two Afrofunk and modern jazz pioneers, old and new.
International Afrofunk fusion troupe The Beta Club gets the treatment from one of the Paris DJs' most reliable version-masters Grant Phabao. Paying full respect to the instrumentation and arrangement of the original, Grant has inserted a rich warm skank spine into the body of the track, giving it instant soundsystem appeal. Essential party business.
