Afrolicious – Horizons

Afrolicious serve up a tasty slice of contemporary afrobeat perfect for summer days and nights. The San Francisco-based group has been establishing a solid reputation in the Bay Area over the past few years particularly due to their energetic live shows.

At it’s core Afrolicious is a dj duo consisting of the two brothers Pleasuremaker and Senor Oz. However, over the past few years Afrolicious has evolved into a 8-12 piece band releasing two EPs, both produced by Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation. They have also released one full length album, “California Dreaming”, where “Horizons” is from. The band is loosely affiliated with like minded groups such as Antibalas who also play music inspired by Africa.

“Horizons” is a groovy, bouncing instrumental with the afrobeat trademarks of funky bass, bright guitars, organ and of course plenty of horns. Guaranteed to make your Monday just a little better.
