KOKOLO AFROBEAT ORCHESTRA's fourth album "Heavy Hustling" finds the NYC powerhouse expertly mashing up Fela Kuti stylings into James Brown classics with a twist of Latin and Jamaican flavors thrown into the mix. This album is without question their best offering to date and showcases Kokolo at the height of their innovative powers. Not just another by-the-numbers homage to 'The Godfather of Soul', this record breathes new life into the genre and demonstrates what the contemporary deep funk scene sounds like.

Anticipated by heavily playlisted first single “Soul Power”, on "Heavy Hustling" you'll find other great classics from 'Mr.Dynamite' such as “Please Please Please", “Think”, “It's A New Day” and “Bring It Up” all cooked up in the unique Kokolo Afrobeat Orchestra style. More than an album..."Heavy Hustling" is a sign of the times. If it doesn't make you wanna move, consider yourself officially dead!
