Here is some major funk via 7″ courtesy of Electric Cowbell Records in conjunction with Volcom Entertainment.

A split 7″, the A side features the always intense CSC Funk Band with an afro-funk instrumental groove, Catcher’s Mitt.

The B side is a 7″ edit version of a tune called Ogun by Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra. The 4 minute horn-laden beat fills out this release perfectly. There two are a great match.

It isn’t mentioned on the page, but I found out from Jimmy T at Electric Cowbell that this release is limited to 1000 copies, each numbered.

Shipping is $3.50 to the U.S., $8 the rest of the world.

The Details

A match made in heaven! Special split 45 with CSC Funk Band (USA) and the Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra (EU). Volcom releases this special Paris Dj's and Electric Cowbell limited-edition production in the fall of 2012.

CSC Funk Band deliver another morsel of their special brand of cop-show funk. A driving rhythm section comprised of all the CSC drummers and percussionists sets the the funk-urgent tone. The keyboards whiz around your ears like a swarm of swirling hornets then when the captain turns the seat belt sign off there's that funky oboe that flies you over magic puff clouds only to be bring you back to a high-speed car chase scene under the subway in Buswick where a shredding psych guitar shows its badge and closes the deal in a freeze frame.

With heavy heavy Afrofunk breaks and horns slabs, the dancefloor stormer Ogun by the Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra has already been ravaging the clubbers heads & feets every time it's been tested on the floor. Its funkin' Afro hotness is unmissable and announces amazing new releases from Franck Biyong and Grant Phabao. the duo have been working together for a year now on Franck's upcoming album with his new band the Diamane Bantu Messengers, on the upcoming Paris DJs Soundsystem Afro/Tropical compilation to be released next month, and on the Grant Phabao Afrofunk Arkestra album scheduled for early 2013. Featuring Franck Biyong (bass), Nicolas Baudino (tenor sax) and Zakari Frantz (alto sax)
