After 10 years of hosting the biggest Weekly Afroboogie Ritual the West Coast has ever witnessed at Santa Monica’s Zanzibar, the beloved Afro Funké Soundsystem is moving forward and signing out from the club night that took much responsibility in reviving an entire scene.  Tonight the tribe reunites with past djs, musicians and the community, together, under the roof that we’ve all grooved below once before, one last time.  Beats of All-Nations would like to salute Jeremy Sole, Glenn Red, Rocky Dawuni and Cary Sullivan for staying true to the purpose and providing us with such a service.  Thank You!

Here is one of our favorite moments witnessed at AF, Cut Chemist (who will be in the house tonight), performing “Adidas to Addis” from the Sound of the Police release party live on One-Turntable and a loop pedal:
