Afrobeta: Under the Streets

Afrobeta - Under the Streets

I hadn’t heard of Afrobeta before this but they can include me as part of their fan base after listening to this album. For the most part this cd is pretty dope. It is extremely electronic with a strong club feel to it. A lot of the songs share similar beat structures but each has its own unique flare to accompany it. The lead singer has a alright voice that serves as a decent accent to the production. Overall it is a good listen. “Do You Party”, “Land of Lost Lovers”, “Pistol Whip” are my favorites. The last three songs in my opinion sorta fell off. Reviewed by Mark Rogers RIYL: basic tronic beats Rec:…
