G-DO & Xception - A Tribute to Fela Kuti: Felatastic (2011

/Conceptual, Afro beat, Hip-hop, Urban Music, Afro futurism, Psychedelic, Afro funk, Rap/

Comment: Chicago rapper Xception and Amsterdam producer G-DO do insist in the introducing track Outline that their purpose is to introduce the Nigerian legend Fela Kuti`s music to a newer audience. Indeed, in their first Felastatic album (10 tracks) they would complete their task regarding a mix between nowadays hip-hop music elements and hovering, psychedelic nature of afro beat/funk//afro futuristic rhythms and prominent harmonic sensitivity. For instance, listen to The Revolutionist, a fabulous blend of dance appealed rhythms, convulsive scratch flecks and hectic chants which are about to rear the listener`s feel and intoxicate it with timeless perception regarding good kind of music. On the other side, it does not surprise with regard to crafty production abilities being previously experienced by those producers. However, they would release a sequel to this issue in 2013. In a word, hail to the king Fela Anikulapo Kuti (1938-1997).
