Product description

Product Description

* With the World Cup in South Africa set to dominate the cultural agenda this summer we thought it would be timely for a compilation of the funkiest vintage grooves from 1960s-1980s South Africa.

* Styles range from traditional Zulu, Shangaan and Sotho funky sounds through to Jo'burg's 70s and 80s JB wannabees, and on into deep jazzfunk and spiritual dance-jazz work-outs; all funky, forgotten S.A. dancefloor gems derived from John's own vinyl collection the majority of
which have never before appeared on CD.

* In the myriad Afro Funk, Afro Beat and Afro Jazz reissues and compilations of the last few years, the name of South Africa has been unaccountably absent: South Africa has always had the largest music industry in the whole of Africa by a long, long way and "South African Funk Experience" features the artists who rocked the blacks-only shebeens, brothels and bars of Soweto, and the notorious migrant camps' Saturday night dances.


(4 Stars) All praise to DJ John Armstrong for assembling such an invigorating, varied - and yes - danceable compilation with its roots deep in the 1970s and 1980s -- The Sunday Times - 06/06/10

(4 stars) Little-known tracks, mostly available on CD for the first time, including deep, funky workouts that most of today's South Africa Musician's sadly can't match -- The Evening Standard - 11/06/10
