Habibi Funk – Funk, Soul, Psych Music from the Arab World
Some of you may have come across these fantastic mixes with the eye catching name of HABIBI FUNK. If you haven’t, then I thought this was essential to share this wonderful conceptual mix series and music platform.
Jannis of Jakarta Records explains: “I got to travel a lot in north africa in the last years thru touring with blitz the ambassador and the studio session with oddisee for sawtuha in tunisia. while being there i did some digging and found some incredible music from the 60s and 70s. some of the music in this mix has zero info on the net, was never sold on ebay and has not been “rediscovered” yet. others are somewhat classics in the field of „arabic groove“. the music in this mix comes from morocco, libya, egypt, algeria, lebanon and syria.”
Here are a couple of mixes for you to get a taste but head to soundcloud.com/habibifunk for all of the madness!
