#48 – Dokkerman & the Turkeying Fellaz, The Gaslamp Killer, The Four Owls, Dele Sosimi

We’re getting a little bit funky this week following a couple of episodes looking on the weirder side of music. From the opening afro-tinged funk of Hungary’s Dokkerman & the Turkeying Fellaz’s new LP through Germany’s Tramp Records, to the closing refrain of Joe Baatan’s brilliant Aftershower Funk – recently repressed through Soul Jazz – we’ve got danceable numbers all the way through. We stop off in the middle with the new record from Fela Kuti collaborator Dele Sosimi’s new one through Wah Wah 45s, and also have new ones from Scottish artists Clade and Happy Meals, a fuzzy piece of brilliance from unsigned Birmingham act Tiny Rockets, Stearica’s latest track, some UK Hip Hop from The Four Owls, a modern classic from The Gaslamp Killer, and a reissue of a £300 classic slight of sexy soul from Sharon Revoal coming from Nik Weston and Mukatsuku – get funky!
