Add to that selection some very cool Afro tracks from Latin, Funk or Pop artists such as Brownout, Combo de la Musica, Connie Price and The Keystones, Criolo, Damn!, King Porter Stomp, Orgone, Rubblebucket and The Impellers, give it to Grant Phabao to masterfully mix the whole thing down, and you have nearly 3 new hours of 21st century Afro music to trip out, chill on or dance to!
