Afrodisia were a band that formed in Worms, Germany in 1978 and ran through to the mid-1980s. The band’s leader was Darnell Stephen Summers and was formed featuring a cross collective of US Germany based soldiers and local German musicians.
They released one album ‘Elephant Sunrise’ in 1980 on Comma Records which features the phenomenal ‘Sugar Free’.
The rolling bassline of ‘T.M.F.F’ gives it a funk/jazz groove while the blustery ‘Psychic Summer’ harks back to NYC Fusion.
The Bill Summers penned ‘Sugar Free’ sees the group in jazzy disco territory while the superb percussive groove of ‘A Fool No Longer’ has a sweltering funk feel that rolls along and drives ahead with bags of energy.
Highly recommended and almost impossible on original!
