African Battle

Freestyle Records

Released: 14th January 2008 | 2 track funk single
Taken from the long awaited debut album from latin funk collective Brownout, these 2 tracks will no doubt make international noise as the real deal latin funk. Two and a half years in the making, the album was recorded in rare down-time from their main project Grupo Fantasma (who recently toured as backing band to Prince!). The band hit analog tape machines, home studios and laptops to create their full length introduction to the world, chock full of Latin, afro, funk and psychedelic sounds that will challenge you to sit still without snapping your neck. Here they drop their cover of Manu Dibango's African Battle, which is an up-tempo, break-riding banger which has been played constantly at b-boy jams worldwide for the last few years. Over on the flip is the bands own The Sexican – more deep fried Latin funk fo that ass.
