Berlin-based collective African Acid Is The Future inaugurates its new label partnership with The Vinyl Factory by releasing the first in a three-part 2×12″ series "Ambiance".

The first installment, "Ambiance I", captures two extraordinary live performances in Berlin, backed by remixes from AAITF members Dauwd and Wolfonacid on the second 12″.

The live performances feature Kenyan dodo singer Ogoya Mengo & The Dodo Women, and the woman once described as Zimbabwe’s mbira queen Stella Chiweshe. The former was recorded live in Romain’s Azzaro apartment, while Chiweshe’s performance was captured in front of an enraptured crowd at Berlin’s iconic Funkhaus venue.

Dauwd, the US-born, Wales-raised artist has been releasing music for nearly 6 years on such noted labels as Ghostly International and Kompakt. Now on Ninja Tune, "Theory Of Coloures" sees the producer delve more into his exotic and beguiling sound pool. Pulling inspiration from electronic music legends like Terry Riley, Raymond Scott and the seminal Radiophonic Workshop period in the late 50’s and 60’s, Dauwd’s new LP draws a unique line between influences as disparate as hazy Detroit house and early German krautrock. A skilled musical engineer, Dauwd’s ability to balance between such sprawling genres is, paradoxically, an exercise in restriction, finding creative freedom in limiting his own gear. It’s clear he’s no stranger to focus; sonically, "Theory of Colours" runs tightly wound, its loops intentional and layers meticulously built. Spanning a succinct forty minutes across seven tracks, Dauwd’s fondness for delays and love for vintage synthesizers characterize much of the album, which was recorded over the course of a year primarily in a Utrecht studio that houses one of the largest collections of vintage synths and other modular equipment in all of Europe. The result is an intricate, scintillating journey that hovers between familiar and strange. For many artists, that enigmatic gap is one that’s anxiously avoided-- the fear of misidentity as a musician more important than the music itself. Throughout "Theory of Colours", it’s a space Dauwd comfortably renders as his own.
