Aphrodesia & Dr Israel
Maybe Aphrodesia is further proof that it's time to update the word 'afrobeat' with something else. True, the group's horn-laden polyrhythmic funk owes more than a passing glance to Fela Kuti's revolutionary 1970's blueprint, and yes, this is the same San Francisco-based crew who braved armed Nigerian border police during their 2006 pilgrimage to Lagos, Nigeria and the New Afrika Shrine-Femi Kuti's continuation of his father's legendary nightclub and the birthplace of afrobeat itself. But Aphrodesia's sound- the rich, dual female lead vocals, jazz-inflected horn section and powerful rhythm- has always encompassed much more than just afrobeat.









Dr. Israel's new incarnation of the Dub sound is like nothing else you've heard. "Patterns of War," the new album by Doc and the young Brooklyn collective Dreadtone International, is a new-school-meets-old-school marriage of roots, dub, trip-hop, rock, and R&B. Teaming up with vocalists Lady K and Chemda, along with an assortment of Brooklyn's finest dub players, the good Dr. has created possibly his most accessible effort to date--an entirely new dub sound. Think Massive Attack vs. Fugees. Heavy heavy bass lines, thundering beats, beautiful melodies, pristinely produced vocals, and conscious lyrics paint an over-all soundscape which is as powerful as it is unique.
