Kinami Takeshi Dangerous funky badness. The soundtrack to a lost international thriller from the late 60s/early 70s. Kind of the same cultural niche as sythwave, but 15 years earlier and with a different level of attitude. Favorite track: Eritrean Pirates.

4 tracks of blazing afro-funk.

2014 is the year of the Dragonfly. Once again pitching tent in the HopeStreet Recordings camp, Papa Chango release The Matador's spiritual (and literal) successor in the form of a 4 track EP, "Enter The Dragonfly". Fusing subterranean trance-like movements of ethio-funk with scatterings of broken brass, going even further down the psychedelic rabbit hole.


released April 3, 2014
