For this fourth volume, the subtitle will be, of course, 'Tropical Grooves & Afrofunk International Vol.4', for which we found the following title: 'HAVE YOU EVER BEEN TO ELECTRIC AFROLAND?', fitting our "Afro/Tropical" concept. Amazing illustrator Ben Hito designed an original artwork, mind-blowing stuff in our books really. And then we're sending the finished art cover as a source of inspiration to our network of artists, asking for tracks… The selection will be curated by the Paris DJs crew with the help of Zakari Frantz from The Souljazz Orchestra.
