4Hero is DENNIS Mc FARLANE a.k.a DEGO and his partner MARK CLAIR a.k.a. MARC MAC. In more than 20 years they have released 6 albums and set up 5 different labels while making a huge contribution to dance culture. They won NME album of the year and were nominated for a Mercury Prize Award and won a MOBO award in 2001. 4Hero are real world musicians. Rather than integrate, they interrogate the music history and are able to mix past, present and future. Sonar Kollektiv is happy to let DEGO teach us a lesson of Black Music history on this compilation. Things start off on a very funky note with BOOTSY COLLINS who played earlier on in his career in JAMES BROWN’s band! The compilation continues with tracks from DABRYE, J. DILLA, RAYMOND SCOTT, TWO SISTERS, FACE, SCIENTIST, THE SKATALITES, PATRICE RUSHEN, GEORGIA ANNE MULDROW, ROY HARGROVE, LITTLE BROTHER and WAAJEED. From new to old DEGO teaches us that Black music constantly innovates without forgetting its roots.
