Various Artists “Cosmic Discotheque Vol. 2: 12 Junkshop Afro Disco Funk Gems From the 70s” (Naughty Rhythm)
Welcome back to the magic world of Cosmic Discotheque! This brand-new second volume in the series will take you in an amazing journey through the Afro side of the ’70s disco productions. Certainly, bands like Osibisa, Kongas, and Barrabas with their special mix of Afro-jazz-funk and tribal-freak-rock, helped to spread this unprecedented blend of sounds, that along with classic disco music, were in fact the most danced rhythms throughout the European dancefloors of the era. As in the first volume, Naughty Rhythm Records keep focusing on less known artists and unearthed little gems selected from forgotten dusty singles B sides. Exotic atmospheres and highly hypnotic tribal rhythms are the main ingredients of this Cosmic Discotheque Vol. 2. Twelve Afro-disco singles, all so infectious that it’s impossible not to dance to. Stuff that you will be definitely looking for at the next local flea market. Features African People, Beryl Cunningham, Songhoi Band, Ramasandiran Somusundaram, M’bamina, Max B, Tribe, The Starlights, Tumblack, Luky Pistoia, Kinkies, and Black Blood.
