Afro-Noize Part 1 - ObaFunke


Free Download - ObaFunke - "Obachant" Buy Album


Somewhere around the year 2000, one of our favorite producer/DJ's, King Britt released a beautiful slice of Afro-funk-house under the guise of the mysterious Obafunke. For some reason this sweet record "slipped through the cracks" and never got the full recognition I think it deserved. All that has changed now as King has re-released the album CosmoAfrique (including a killer new bonus remix) on his ambitious new FiveSixMedia on-line store. The Afro-house thing can get a bit "cheesy" in the wrong hands but rest assured that this project hits all of the right notes. As far as I'm concerned, King is the best kind of DJ/Producer- one who has impeccable and incredibly diverse taste coupled with production chops that have as much respect for our ears as they do for the needs of the dance-floor. If you missed this project the first time, here's your chance to make good.
