Grant Phabao and Djouls - 21st Century Afro Spectacular

Grant Phabao and Djouls 21st Century Afro Spectacular

We've counted at least a hundred very interesting new releases in the 21st century afro scene since our last mix, 21st Century Afro Extravaganza. Here's nearly 20% of all those new cool afro grooves from all over the world, with an exclusive new track from the Grant Phabao Afrobeat Arkestra, friendly vibes from Afrolicious, Karl Hector, Les Frères Smith (mixed by Phabao!), or Kiala, more friendly vibes sent by our label collegues from Record Kicks, Tramp Records, Jazz&Milk, Enlace Funk, Kindred Spirits or Kept Records and a few things we grabbed here and there. 21st Century Afrobeat, Afrofunk, Afrolatin and Ethio grooves from Australia, Trinidad, USA, Germany, Japan, Canada, France, Spain or The Netherlands, selected by Djouls, mixed and fully mastered by Grant Phabao.
