Bay Area based collective Afrolicious this week released debut album California Dreaming on their own label, Afrolicious Music. Combining funk, soul, Afrobeat, and tropical sounds, the music makes a no-brainer summer soundtrack. Content wise, the album explores the line between dreams and realities of California living.
Afrolicious dropped their debut EP, A Dub For Mali, yesterday and it promises to satisfy many musical palettes with its afro-beat, disco, reggae, and Malian blues sensibilities, to name a few. This EP has a wonderfully chill energy that's easily repeat worthy.
Produced by Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation, the EP is an inspired work, paying homage to the sounds cultivated at San Francisco's weekly Afrolicious party hosted by Joe McGuire (aka Pleasuremaker), who also comprises Afrolicious.
