Nik Weston Presents Afro Funk Gems Volume 1: Music Of West Africa

A 2 track single () — released April 23rd 2012 on Mukatsuku
# #

Mukatsuku Records dig deep into the French label Oriki music catalogue (founded in 2005 by Gregoire de Villanova) to unleash two sought after classics of West African funk gems that have stood the test of time as timeless pieces of music.Orchestre Baobab ,initially from Senegal were formed in 1970 as an afro cuban band and went onto to have a considerable career until the mid 1980's and then reforming in 2001. 'Kelen Ati Len' was recorded in the mid 1970's and its appeal is not only with fans of world music but with b boys and funk lovers who dug the tough breakbeats and funky arrangements within. On the flipside ''Samba'' from Malian artist Moussa Doumbia is edited by Nik from GUYNAMUKAT into a 45 friendly length. ''Samba'' is infused with hipnotic guitar,shuffling funky rhythm patterns,fantastic brass arrangements and James Brown type screams which possibly hint at his cosmopolitan lifestyle having lived in Paris for several years and been facinated by African American Music.Strictly vinyl only 7 inch issue and mastered by Sean P. No Downloads.Support so far comes from Rob Luis(Tru Thoughts),Faze Action,Sofrito Crew,Pat Les Stache,Sccucci Manucci and many more
