Friday Is My First Fela Day

The Underground Spiritual Game

Going back a couple of years to a delectable mix put out on Quannum Projects of the late, great Fela Kuti compiled and mixed by Blackalicious' Chief Xcel.

It's yummy. I've been a big fan of Fela's every since I got into a bizarre car accident at 3am and escaped unscathed. Going over to my friend's house who was the ultimate Fela fanatic, he played me a record and it was in that strange life moment of feeling like the luckiest person in the world that I experienced Fela for the first time. This was the music I heard that made me joyous to be alive.

This was many years ago, but I still feel a sense of relief and excitement whenever I put on these records. They're just so damn funky.
