London Afrobeat Collective's take on Fela’s original blueprint remains traditional but includes modern injections of raw funk, latin and even dubstep in latest single 'Occupy', all glued together by bold brass and dancefloor sweat. With nods to the 'Star Wars' theme, a rock edge, and a rallying cry going like this: 'Occupy the streets and buildings - Say we got to make a change", this is really a unique, exhilarating track! With a catalogue of new material ready for release and the festival season on the horizon, the rise of LAC looks unstoppable - you won’t be able to resist them…

About London Afrobeat Collective :
If, as the great Fela Kuti once said, ‘music is the weapon’, then you’ll need to wear armour to withstand the full sonic force of London Afrobeat Collective (LAC) - this politicised party machine are an incendiary live act who channel the spirit of the Afrobeat founder via bass-heavy rhythms guaranteed to make you move. Their name may include the UK’s capital but their sound goes far beyond the British Isles. A line up including members from as far flung as Nigeria and Iran makes for a unique, global sound sharpened through constant gigging and captured in a self-titled debut album.

Latest Releases :
- Occupy (Digital Single, 2012)
