SOUL FUNKTION Radio #125 DJ Offbeat & Nomade

Cheers family, I hope you are having a great week! Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends. Eat, sleep, and enjoy yourself!

This week we have a special edition. SOUL FUNKTION Radio meets Nomade Radio. In the lead up to the Fela Lives party a few weeks ago, our friend in Montreal asked us for a 30 minute set of afro heaters and I was more than happy to do so. Nomade provided a 30 minute set of his own and put the whole program together. This originally aired on Choq FM in Montreal on Saturday.
Check out Nomade every week at

Domu Stand Tall

Yesterday, we received some disappointing news. Domu (aka Umod, Bakura, Rima, Yokoto, Sonar Circle, Zoltar, etc) has called it a day. Domu has delivered us so many incredible records over the past 10 years that it is absolutely staggering to think about. He has always been at the forefront, pushing the beats and sounds to the edge and beyond.

An impromptu tribute session this morning yielded 11 of my personal favorites.

Domu, you inspired us and have blessed us with so much happiness through music. We are deeply grateful. Massive respect. Stand tall!
