The Mighty Mocambos (feat. Afrika Bambaataa, Charlie Funk, Hektek & Deejay Snoop) - It's The Music (7", Mocambo, 2014)

Esteemed collegue Ben Greenslade-Stanton (The Beta Club, The Mighty Mocambos, The Snitch, The Spike Orchestra, etc.) gave us a visit this summer and brought some funky 45s with him to share with us. One of those stands out from the lot: 'It's The Music', released on Mocambo Records in 2014, a heavy piece of modern dancefloor funk, with a big chunk of 'California Love' tease inside. There's even an instrumental 'Part 2' version on the b-side, destined to hurt the less-prepared legs with its mad breaks. Unstoppable grooves that'll go directly in the bag - just splendid.

Press Release :
The stunning collabo between the Mighty Mocambos and hiphop-legend Afrika Bambaataa goes into the 2nd round. For the joy of all b-girls and b-boys, the Godfather of Hip-Hop and today's best heavy funk band present their banging new anthem. 'It's The Music' brings the sound of early hiphop livebands into present time, with the Mocambos showcasing their skills on a discofied breakdance beat, only topped by the vocal authorities of the Amen-Ra Of Universal Hip-Hop Culture and fellow Zulu Nation members Charlie Funk (aka Afrika Islam), Hektek and Deejay Snoop, the latter providing a trademark talkbox feature. The flip side contains an exclusive instrumental ready to smash dancefloors on its own.
