Phat French Female Fronted Funk. Yay! When it comes to funkiness, the French have of course a string of great rappers (MC Solaar and the like), there’s CQMD, there was Vigon, some Eddy Mitchell-tracks, some Ben L’Oncle Soul-songs, but funky French filles? Severine recorded a few fine French covers of soulful tunes, but the whole funk, uncut funk, the bomb, in French, by a girl, I didn’t think I’d hear it. I was wrong. I just heard it. I saw it too. HERE. The band’s called The Mighy Mocambos, they’re from Germany and worked with Kenny Dope, with Afrika Bambaata, with Su Kramer (!) and make supersweaty, fatback funk. LOVE this. Turns out that The Mocambos did an excellent vinyl-single with Lacaze earlier, I missed that one completely. Listen on Soundcloud HERE.
