It didn’t seem possible that Chicago Afrobeat Project‘s stomping 2017 album, What Goes Up, could get any funkier, but then Latinx DJ crew Future Rootz dropped the killer full-length What Goes Up Remixed late last month. Gossip Wolf has a feeling that these cuts—remixed by the likes of Ron Trent, Maga Bo, DJ Sound Culture, and Jose Marquez—are heating up dance floors already.
Sol Power All-Stars are proud to announce that our newest output officially puts our name on the same release with Tony Allen, the man that gave Fela Kuti the rhythms to craft his afrobeat vision. When Chicago Afrobeat Project hit us up to provide a remix for a reworked version of their 2017 release What Goes Up, our responses were “Yes” and “Let’s do it right now!” We dig how this one turned out, especially since some of our peers that we admire also got the call for this project and turned in some heat as well. Today marks the official release of What Goes Up Remixed featuring Tony Allen with remixes by Maga Bo, Ron Trent, AfroQbano, Sound Culture, Jose Marquez, Kevin Ford and of course Sol Power All-Stars.
