Over the last couple of weeks I have been exploring some great new sounds. Well… new to me anyway!
Having listened to the Craig Charles Funk and Soul show on BBC 6 Music quite a lot recently, I have been developing a keen interest in some funky / afrobeat rhythms, and I thought I’d share a few of my recent discoveries / favourites with you.
First up: EMEFE
I downloaded their Good Future album and was absolutely blown away. I was therefore delighted to learn that they have recently released details of their up coming self-titled Funk-Pop album that is set to be a groove laden and exciting ride!
Next: Fela Kuti: Go Slow
Ok this one isn’t completely new to me, but after reading that EMEFE were influenced by Fela’s music, I decided to go back and listen again to some old favourites!
Finally: Fusik: Percusso
Found this one on soundcloud whilst having a funk inspired browse. This Florida based group will get you moving!
Ok… First post done! More on the way 🙂
