"No Funk, No Chop Volume 1 (Underground African Funk & Disco Hits 1977 - 1982)"

We jump on the bus to find some afro funk & disco bombs.

In Ghana "to chop" is to eat, so the phrase No Funk No Chop quite simply means; deliver afro funk and disco bombs, or no one will eat today. With this in mind we jump on the bus to begin our journey. We find our man Gregoire Lawani in fine form with one of the greatest party starters "Africa Land Of Soul". Brethren Tany Welck tells the world that he is indeed a "Sexy Man". Peter Mukoko "Esimo Esimo" delivers the breakdown to end all breakdowns. Django Strong supplies us with his super slick "Hoo Dou Hoo Mine". Jide Obi "Give's It Everything he has got", just listen to that bass! Fosto transports us with a synth laden boogie portraying his vision of Africa, K3 Band give us the "Feeling" and we reach our destination ending with Tchamy Patterson's "Camerounaise Children". So, let's eat!!
We hope you enjoyed your trip!
