STEPAK-TAKRAW - Socotra (LP, Soul Garden Records Japan, 2015)



Remember that killer 45 from Japanese Afrofunk band STEPAK-TAKRAW which we wrote about, something like a year ago? 'Phat Fat Jackson' was one of the highlights of the year singles-wise. with its blend of afrofunk, latin & surf music… In december 2013 the group had released their third album 'Socotra', but on CD only. That same album is now finally released on vinyl, through Soul Garden Records, and everyone will finally be able to hear it as it was supposed to. STEPAK-TAKRAW proudly say they play afrobeat, afrofunk, latin funk, cumbia, rock and more - but "psychedelic afro-jamband from Japan" would be a better fit for Paris DJs readers. Can't wait to hear the new tunes the band has just finished recording this year…
