Ibibio Sound Machine / Throwing Shade / Machinedrum
AmaiNdiwulule / Lewasi / Dream Scene
This three tracker kicks off with the uplifting sounds of Ibibio Sound Machine's 'AmaiNdiwulule' which combines a mid-tempo groove with children's singing, blasting brass and Eno Williams's distinctive vocal chants. Machinedrum ups the pace and ups the bass on 'Lewasi', a Shangaan style slammer with sweet vocals and intertwined acoustic guitars. Lastly Throwing Shade builds layers of kalimba (thumb piano) notes on 'Dream Scene' creating a beautiful shimmering acoustic piece reminiscent of Michael Nyman's minimalism as well as far eastern sounds - Balearic heads take note!
