this guy goes to africa and buys old vinyl from afro-beat bands. there may be a whole lot of cultural appropriation issues at work here but i will forgo them for the sake of good music! he runs a blog called voodoofunk
this is a trailer for a documentary someone is making about him.

two tracks today, one old one new.
crazy p are a british live disco/funk/boogie whatever group and they have been making some really good music over the past five years or so. This track is a single from their latest record and it features the london's unabombers on the remix, they had a long running club night in london called the electric chair. their remix turns the discofied original into a classic new york house workout.
huge track right here, this is eddie grant's(!) original project, this is one of those songs that is hard to classify, there are some disco elements and maybe some dub influence but it really goes beyond that. pat mahoney played it at the last dfa night at celebrities and people were getting wild.
