A nine-piece outfit from Hamburg, Diazpora formed back in 2002 and haven't looked back since. For them its all about the grooves and the funk, and now they've reached their fifth album, Islands. There are 13 tracks here that fuse live bass, horns, guitar and Hammond organs in their unique 'no-school' sound. In addition to all this mayhem, the band now boasts a brand singer and 'soul mate', Axel Feige, guitarist and singer of Absolem Max fame. Great to hear that their quest for true funk is continuing in fine style!
