GROOVERIDER Mysteries of Funk

Mysteries of Funk is an astonishingly accomplished and daring debut album that succeeds in evoking feelings of such legendary black music innovators as Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. The jungle legend and his partner in crime Optical, pull back on the brutal hard step jungle they are known for to showcase vocalists Roya Arab, and Sophie Barker.
