about

Paris DJs and Elvis Martinez Smith team up for 'Rise Of The Troubadour Warriors - Tropical Grooves & Afrofunk International Vol.3' - taking up where the second volume left off with another a fully-licensed compilation of Afrofunk, Afrobeat, Latin or Brazilian Funk & Ethio-Jazz from the 21st century.

The music abounds with psychedelic influences and a heavy dose of soul, including a slew of brand new unreleased tracks from Brownout, The Funk Ark (both produced by Adrian Quesada) and Hard Proof from Austin, Texas; Foreign Key and Todd Simon's Ethio-Cali Ensemble from Los Angeles, USA; the Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra or Osemako from Paris and Nîmes, France; Papa Chango from Melbourne, Australia; and the International Ducks from Berlin, Germany!!

The series has already received fantastic critical praise, with The Afrobeat Blog calling Volume 1 “pure unadulterated afrobeat heaven”, WRUV's Music Reviews noticing the "Gorgeous vintage sound on many tracks", and The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show on the BBC claiming that “the amount of high-quality Afro, Soul, Ska & Reggae that the Paris DJs are throwing out just now is breathtaking. 'Dis Is Good For You', their actual compilation, it's good for ya!".

All of the tracks were re-mastered by Grant Phabao at Paris DJs studios, giving the music on 'Rise Of The Troubadour Warriors' a sound quality sometimes previously unavailable. Quite simply, the music has never sounded this good. With an intemporal Ben Hito artwork as a source of inspiration to submit tracks, this is truly epic music and is perhaps even more relevant to the funkier influences within the contemporary Afro musical spectrum.
