Lab Overview

These are African Rhythms... passed down to us from the ancient spirits... Originally released in 1975 on the Black Fire label, this piece of DC afro-funk is best-known for the breakbeat cut "Liberation Dues." After all these years, it still can make your balls drop. I've grown to really appreciate the a-side as well. It plays as one long continuous multi-movement track, starting with the 7+ minute "African Rhythms" (Dilla touched this one on the Welcome 2 Detroit LP), weaving through funk ("Kazi" and "Tarishi"), African music, and soul jazz ("Masharki"). 2018 double vinyl repress on Strut with the rare 45 version of "African Rhythms" and the previously-unreleased "Afrobeat." Includes download code. Recommended.
