Jannis of Jakarta Records/Habibi Funk drops another mixtape of North African funk and disco

    Jannis of Jakarta Records has been dropping heat lately. After every trip to North Africa and the Middle East, he puts together a new mixtape—this time with funk covers (James Brown!) from Egypt and disco from Algeria and Morocco. There’s a killer Tunisian tune that’s a nice mix of modern soul and poppy reggae. There’s even a cover of Free’s “All Right Now.”

    Their sub-label Habibi Funk has a new release coming out from Fadoul, so don’t sleep.
