@David Thomas very possible--which track? I've heard Blackalicious sample a Fela bass line. Have you heard Dr. No's Ethiopium? http://www.stonesthrow.com/store/albu... or the Fela Soul project? So much great material. I'm trying to get another African mix together... maybe by the fall.

Love this, and the fact that it opened with a song from the craddle of civilization was amazing. Thank you.

Thanks--it's sort of an amazing uplift. To transform a boring activity into a percussion jam!! Thought it made a nice closer to the mix.
