AFRO FUNKE’ LIVE PRESENTS

AFROLICIOUS

Afrolicious is Pleasuremaker aka Joe McGuire’s foray into African music. Formerly a radio dj at University of Kansas, he relocated to SF where he created and cultivated with his brother Oz McGuire San Francisco’s legendary weekly party at the Elbo Room called Afrolicious. Working with musicians from all over Africa and the diaspora, this project explores his deep admiration and respect for the rhythms, sounds and musicians from Africa. During one of his gigs he passed a demo to Thievery Corporation’s SF transplant Rob Garza, Garza who really vibed on the music and thought the project had potential soon decided to produce the project, the 1st EP entitled a “Dub for Mali” will be released this summer on ESL music.

Recently, Pleasuremaker opened up for Thievery Corporation at Red Rocks to an amazing response. Afrolicious has also been featured on Nickodemus recent Turntables on the Hudson compilation, remixed Thievery Corporation’s ‘Vampires’ and are regularly touring and djing around the country. Currently Afrolicious is putting together a dj mix of the ESL Music catalog as well.
