My new HOUSE OF MARLEY headphones (thanks, Cary & Rocky!) have been over in Nigeria so far this week, as I’m starting to have withdrawal symptoms from having not mixed at an AFRO FUNKE event for two and a half months now. As much fun as it is for a music lover/collector to spend time researching and digging up shiny and heavy new tunes for our ears, it’s also sweet when an amazing label like SOUNDWAY RECORDS shares gems from their own mining operations. Thanks and respect to MILES CLERET and co. for releasing this rare album last fall…EASY KABAKA BROWN!!

And big shouts to deejays RANI D and SON ZOO for feeding my soul with all the funkiness last night at RADIO AFRIQUE! Congrats on a great debut, fellas!

yes, sir!

If I were asked to choose which tune I like more, between Sir Victor Uwaifo’s tunes Ekassa 24 or Ekassa 42, I’m not sure that I could. I love ’em both…so here they are below. Be sure to check out this great blog post if you’d like to know more about Sir Victor and his ‘ekassa’ brand of music:
