Afrika Bambaataa & Soul Sonic Force to Drop New Song at Wireless Festival

soul_sonic_forcePioneering electro-rap group Afrika Bambaataa & the Soul Sonic Force will make its first UK appearance in 25 years on July 4th at Wireless Festival at London’s Hyde Park. Known for melding hip-hop and electro in the early ’80s, the New York-based innovators will don their outlandish costumes and play hits like “Planet Rock,” “Looking for the Perfect Beat” and “Renegades of Funk.” While the group will celebrate its rich history on a bill that’ll feature Blur to Dizzee Rascal, they also plan to drop their new single, “Soo Good.” Says Afrika Bambaataa, “Some of our new songs are based on the funk, others are electro go-go. We always play for the people and give them what they want.” Look for this group of seasoned vets to funk up the place.
