Calling all intergalactic Afro-funk cosmonauts and tropical grooves aficionados !!

After exploring GOODNESS, FIRE, WARRIOR and ELECTRIC themes, Paris DJs felt it was time to concentrate their research on the UNITY concept, on the global cultural unity that is expressed through all strands of groovy, funky, psychedelic and moving afrofunk, afrobeat, ethio-jazz, highlife, afrojazz, afrosoul, Carribean Funk and other Tropical Grooves to be found on this planet today.

This new compilation in the 'Tropical Grooves & Afrofunk International series' is called 'A HOUSE DIVIDED AGAINST ITSELF CANNOT STAND'. This unity theme is one that came out of nearly every discussion with the musicians from the worldwide 'afro scene'. Even if it might seem a bit utopic, it's something that is becoming a reality from Paris DJs' viewpoint - you wouldn't believe how much the most sincere musicians, bands, labels, DJs, record collectors and stores are connected throughout the world…

For this 5th volume of the series, graphic designer Ben Hito conceived another of his FANTASTIC artworks which was published on Paris DJs social networks and sent out by email to a selection of bands, including all the ones selected in the previous volumes.
Only 12 days later, the submissions had to be closed because too much bombs, superb tunes and crazy groovers had landed on the label's desk! A few tracks were even kept on the side for an upcoming funk/soul compilation, and 14 were assembled into the program you have here, ready to reach your music-loving ears.

From Cameroon and Senegal, to Australia and New Zealand, USA, UK, Spain, Germany up to Finland, 'A House Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand' is a joyous tour du monde uniting many strands of music born in Africa.
