B.W.'s PLAYLIST/ KHSU, 90.5/ SAT., 15 MAY 2010

This high-fueled funk/soul instrumental outfit, Mountain Mocha Kilimanjaro, have definitely cut their teeth from James Brown's JB's and The Meters, as well as taking a page out of the Daptone Records gang (thanks to the Brooklyn label, along with Truth & Soul, for re-starting the retro-soul movement!). The Saitama, Japan band's US self titled debut is now available on Jazzman Records, even though it was originally recorded back in 2006. However, this group is not mere restoration artists - they sincerely groove hard, and they have a true feel for the music. MMK will be soon releasing their sophomore release, Uhuru Peak - though likely in Japan only. MMK proves that you don't have to be from Brooklyn to find the funk. Kanpai!
