Tonight I have the pleasure of joining the Afrolicious crew at the Elbo Room in San Francisco. I will be spending the day today grinding spices and simmering fish to nourish the party people as well as digging through my digital crates for those Afrogems to play on the Afrolicious soundsystem.
Afrolicious has been featured here at Soul Cocina numerous times, so my regular readers should be familiar. If you are not hip to the Afrolicious experience, you need to come check it out and get familiar. These guys are full of energy and positivity. The live band drops funky afrobeats with thick bass and they have hosted some of the worlds greatest DJs and musicians as guests. They continue to break down borders and raise the bar with their mixes and original productions.
If you can't make it out tonight, Afrolicious will be playing with the amazing Novalima soundsystem tomorrow night at the Independent in SF. I heard that Novalima killed it in Los Angeles and this show is not to be missed.
And they have also been cranking out some dope OG materiel lately:
And a few new gems from SF's J Boogie:
And that real heat from DJ Theory:
And from beyond:
Beats are coming up.
