Family Groove unearthed enough lost Aurra tapes to release 2 albums of material. Listen to the insanely good Are You Foolin' Around below for a little taste. Here's a little insight into the restoration process:
Once again the world gets to experience a lost disco-funk masterpiece providing another glimpse into the Genius mind of Slave founding-member Steve Washington & Brides Of Funkenstein / P-Funk singer Sheila Horne Brody. Body Rock will be the second and final unearthing of the lost but found Master Tapes for the Aurra album originally recorded for Quincy Jones’ Qwest imprint in 1984.Pick up the new Aurra releases directly from Family Groove or at Juno.
The 24-track master tapes were transferred digitally and then mixed on an SSL board by Kamal Humphrey at his all-analog Flying Carpet Studios in Los Angeles. The result is a full sound enhanced by the natural analog process using today’s digital technology only when needed to clean up the files.
