Lean times call for a lot of things. But above all they call for afrobeat. At least that's how we see it. A seamless mixtape chock-full of West African or West African inspired afrobeat, funk and some Ethiopian and Turkish funky jazz too. Including some Polderafrobeat from the Netherlands from Mdungu, AIFF and The Rare Groove Orchestra plus an extended Rundfunk edit of Manu Dibango's dancefloor burner Wilderness.
