The El Michels Affair – Sounding Out The City (2006)
Personal Note: Formed in NYC back in 01′. Heavy funk with African influences & plenty of brass . Those that like the Soul Fire sound or the style of Dap Tone artists such as The Budos Band or Daktaris will be sure to love this little gem. The group also seems to have a fondness for the late Isaac Hayes as the band has covered a couple of his composings and the influence can often be heard on many of their offerings. One appears here…. “Hung Up On My Baby” which Ike released on the Tough Guys OST back in 74′.

    Greetings SPE crew. I wanted to let you know that I've added your blog to the Soul/Funk category of my music blogroll/directory @ I'm trying to put together the most comprehensive list of music blogs which feature out of print or otherwise unavailable music, as well as those which share podcasts, or sample mp3 files. I've categorized them so that you can easily find exactly what you are looking for.If you would like to help me out, you can do so by linking back to my blog. Although it isn't required in order to be listed, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for all the hard work and time that goes into maintaining this blog, and especially for the fantastic music you share. Take care.Zer0_II
