2006 release. Now is the time and this is the place. The infectious influence of black groove and rhythms has, after many years, finally come to fruition in Spain. This is an extensive sampler that serves as a window into a scene booming with energy and ideas, a scene that isn't limited to bands and musicians, but also extends to clubs and written publications that have been germinated by the groove seed. Spain's Enlace Funk magazine has been in the business of spreading these sounds since it started back in 1996. Reports and interviews with the biggest names in the history of black music, from Isaac Hayes to George Clinton, from Tower of Power to Earth Wind and Fire to name but a few, have been written in its pages. Inside the Spanish club scene, focusing on the spread of black rhythms sounded totally ludicrous until the idea was nurtured by Granada's Afrodisia club, which became a pivotal point of the black music circuit. The soundtrack for its Granada nights is made of funk, jazz, soul, acid jazz, rare grooves, Afrobeat, reggae, hip hop or nu-jazz, and the most prestigious DJs in the world, such as mundo Gerald Jazzman (Jazzman Records), Eddie Piller (Acid Jazz Records), Florian Keller (Compost Records), Henry Storch (Unique Records), Snowboy, or Frank Popp -- among many others -- have all sat behind its turntables. On this compilation Enlace Funk magazine, Afrodisia Club, and Vampisoul presents this pioneer project with the intention of becoming an introduction to the scene of bands lured in by the rhythms of the black nation. As one of the founding fathers would put it: One Nation Under A Groove!
