Video: The Funkees vs. Joe Kickass

It’s really interesting to see how rhythms from all over the continent of Africa are still directly influencing the sound of urban music today. Check out the videos/ songs below; the first is the orignal track, Akula Owu Onyeara, from the old school Eastern Nigerian Afro-Rock group The Funkees, and the second is a recent hip-hop track from Dutch emcee, Joe Kickassentitled Akula.

You can cop the new vinyl release of some of The Funkees best known dance-floor hits online via Soundway Records.
