Various - Más Achilifunk - Gipsy Soul From 21st Century



Mas Achilifunk Gipsy Soul From 21st Century
Various - Más Achilifunk - Gipsy Soul From 21st Century
(CD) Lovemonk LMNK29, 2009-06-02

Achilifunk was a great discovery for those who thought Flamenco is an impervious genre. The album, chosen one of the best compilations of the year by British magazine Wire (yes, the one with all the weird records), showed why Rumba was boss in Spain’s popular music from the late sixties to the early eighties. Mas Achilifunk, the follow-up to the successful Achilifunk is a musical trip that starts in Barcelona and subsequently travels around the world. Txarly connects the dots between the best new Rumba acts coming out of Barcelona and some of the most forward thinking remixers and producers out there. The result is an electrifying and boundary-breaking slab o’wax that will have your rump shaking before you can say "culo".

Press Release :
Almost two years ago Lovemonk released an album that took the world by surprise. Achilifunk was a great discovery for those who thought Flamenco is an impervious genre. The album, chosen one of the best compilations of the year by British magazine Wire (yes, the one with all the weird records), showed why Rumba was boss in Spain’s popular music from the late sixties to the early eighties.

Spanish Rumba began when Gipsy musicians in Barcelona adopted the Cuban and Afro-American music coming from the other side of the pond. The style soon spread all over Spain and even produced a couple of international hits.

After having shown us the roots of Rumba, Txarly Brown - the non-gipsy who knows most about Rumba - helps us to discover the future.

Mas Achilifunk, the follow-up to the successful Achilifunk is a musical trip that starts in Barcelona and subsequently travels around the world. Txarly connects the dots between the best new Rumba acts coming out of Barcelona and some of the most forward thinking remixers and producers out there. The result is an electrifying and boundary-breaking slab o’wax that will have your rump shaking before you can say "culo".
