Afrika man / Afrika man (Diesler rmx)
RK45030 KOKOLO feat JoJo Kuo - " Afrika man" / " Afrika man (Diesler rmx) " on 45/ Digital Download.
On the heels of their critically acclaimed “Heavy Hustling ” album, the lions of New York City Afro-beat return to mark their territory with “Afrika Man ” a brand new single featuring legendary Fela Kuti/ Daktaris/ Antibalas drummer JoJo Kuo. Complete with flawless beats, heavy percussion, soaring horns, funky keys Afrika man is destined to smash dancefloors for years to come. Sounding better than ever, KOKOLO reaffirm their international reputation as kings in today’s Afro-beat jungle with a bona-fide crowd pleaser that brings them back to their original Afro roots. The b-side features a killer remix by Diesler (Tru Thougts/Freestyle). Literally an afro-disco smasher that completes one hell of a ’45. Necessary?... WITHOUT A QUESTION!
"Loving both tracks, the original keeps things downtempo and soulful, and Diesler takes the track into African Disco territory. Great stuff." - Flevans (Tru Thoughts)
"A funky little groover from Kokolo -- a cut that's part Afro Funk, part deep funk, and plenty darn soulful all the way through! The tune romps around with a great sense of energy -- more frenetic than usual for a number of this sort, which is really reflected in the tight, short horn solos that happen in the middle! The Diesler mix is even faster, and more beat-heavy too." - Dusty Groove America
"Absolutely love that!" - Pete Isaac (Jelly Jazz / Phonic FM) .
"Excellent release & Diesler provides a fantastic remix. Will support at every opportunity" - Ian Allen (Lazy Days Music)
