Audio: Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra - Album Preview // First Word Records

Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra - Put Leg To Road (Stream)

More new music this week in the shape of the incomparable Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra. You're probably already familiar with their pounding cover of Crosstown Traffic as well as the driving Lost In Kinshasa. Ariya Astrobeat Arkestra formed in late 2007 when members of the kidkanevil live show and First Word stalwarts Homecut began a series of late night afrobeat sessions at Leeds Jazz venue Sela Bar. It was out of these jam sessions that the 8 piece band was born, combining their love of afrobeat with their appreciation of the space jazz pioneers of the 70’s and the free jazz trailblazers of the 60’s, coupled with a hefty nod towards James Brown.

This will be one of the hottest releases in the future. Finest Afro-Jazz meets Heavy-Funk, The Dancefloor is not a slice. Keep your eyes on First Word Records, This Fam is diggin dope artists in the deepest holes of the underground. Stay tuned for more. All relevant infos -> FWR.
