Voodoo Funk - Root Of All Evil - African Funk mix

If you are deep into digging for music, especially African funk, you most likely have come across However if you haven't, or just don't fit the description of someone who is loony about digging for music, I am here to shed some light on one of the most amazing record digging websites around.

Frank is a German boy that lived in NYC a few decades ago, and ran a sleaze night called Vampyros Lezbos at BAR XVI. It's a notorious party that some of you may have stumbled across at one point or another. Then Frank moved back to the motherland, and got deeper into soul sounds, and it looks like he had a great soul night over there as well. The next step is where things get really interesting, which is when he moved to Africa for the nest three years, digging up extremely rare vinyl gems. He has become one of the true kings of digging, and he was kind enough to start a blog that both documented his digging adventures, and the amazing music he discovered there as well. He has posted many mixes on his blog, and this one is one of my favorites.

But it gets better. It looks like Frank has moved back to NYC, and is starting his new weekly Afro party at Santos Party House in less than a month. It's on! As soon as I find out more info, I'll post it up. In the meantime, I hope you dig this mix as much as I do.

Dear Secret Rendezvous:

I love your blog. It's such a well curated mix of rare music. So thanks for putting me onto all kinds of new stuff.

One other thing is that I can't seem to get this link to work (http:/ is twice in your code .. hint hint).
