Afrofuturism: The New Black (Mix)

afrofuturism

Mysterious website Sheepish.org have collated a 17-track afrofuturism mix.

I’ve had this afrofuturism mix in my bookmarks folder for a while. Sheepish.org appears to be something of a cultural hub with portals to China and bicycles but there are also some mixtapes, including one dedicated to the afrofuturistic movement. We touched upon it a few months back with King Britt’s mix, but this one comes with more tracks and some background information on their site. The stalwart musicians are there – Sun Ra, Parliament and Afrika Bambaataa – and some you might not have thought of – Goldie, Tricky, Machine Drum and Burial.

Stream one of the tracks, “Egypt, Egypt” by The Egyptian Lover and click the link after the jump to get to the mix.
