Here is funk-driven collection that fucking rocks..
The Paris DJs Soundsystem have sourced a collection of Afrofunk,
Afrorock, Afrojazz, Afrobeat, Latin or Brazilian Funk & Ethio-Jazz
from the 21st century has been prepared the other way round,
starting from the end and the packaging, ending with music and the

in the daylight and have some fun!
