Listening Room: The GroovaLottos funk it up on "Ask Yo' Mama"

“So Funky, You’ll Swear It’s Vinyl”

That’s how The GroovaLottos describe their debut album, Ask Yo’ Mama. This 16-track album is a fun and retro funky, soulful and bluesy offering from first note to last word.

Escaping the modern trappings of electronica and hyper-digital production, Ask Yo Mama explores and celebrates the productions of yesteryear, presenting true, raw instrumental and vocal performances without samples, loops, drum machines or auto-tuning.

Ask Yo’ Mama takes listeners to the fictional radio station WBAR (Black Ass Radio), a station SoulTrackers were introduced to on group member Mwalim’s excellent project, The Liberation Sessions. Here, the three members of The Groovalottos make an appearance to be interviewed by a young and unprepared jock named Shoo Be Doo Be on a program called the Medium Rare Groove Show – a comically ironic name since the kind of music that inspires Mwalim and The Grovalottos is funk of the rare and unprocessed variety.

Unlike anything you'll hear on the radio these days, Ask Yo’ Mama is our newest SoulTracks Listening Room. Check it out below and get ready to funk it up!
