In 1996 I founded the infamous NYC sleazefest Vampyros Lesbos at Bar XVI in the East Village that lasted for 4 years until I moved back to Berlin where I launched the Soul Explosion, a night fueled by hard-hitting Funk 45s that soon became the best and the busiest Deep Funk party on the European mainland. In 2005 I turned the Soul Explosion over to my friend King Dynamite who to this day continues this heafy Funk night in Berlin.
Jumy of 2005, I moved to Guinea in West Africa in July 2005 and spent 3 years on an intense record digging road trip all over Guinea, Sierra Leone, Ghana and Benin. I found thousands of rare and astonishing records from the 1970s. Not only did I uncover uncountable Afrobeat and African Funk records but also loads of smoking Afro Latin and some blistering Nigerian Disco. August 2008, I returned from West Africa to NYC . – Frank
