FREE DOWNLOAD: The Beat Doctor's 'Malawi Gold' Funk Mix

Once upon a time in 1999, I stumbled across this Nigerian cat (above) by the name of Fela Kuti, and instantly fell in love with the high-energy blast of his afro-beat style of uptempo jazz-funk.

Since then it's been a mad trek through the dusty-but-digital blogs, posts and albums of African music, searching out obscure compilations and artists, all in pursuit of finding someone else that inspired me the same way as when I first heard Fela.

While I continue my search, I figure I'd put my beat-mixing skills to the test and whip up a tasty mix of Afro-funk. So enjoy the Beat Doctor's "Malawi Gold" funk mix, and as always, lemme know what you think!
