‘Borom Gal’ his collaboration with Youssou N’dour is one of my all-time favourites, one of the best ever. A highlight of last year was another collaborative effort, LV and Joshua Idehen.
Awhile back an album surfaced that caught my attention as Filastine and Quantic were on there. We got Quantic’s thang in here tonight, sparking up a reggae joint.
More newness from Studio Rockers label, AzURA. Bass, finger pianos, distant voices in the space, make a good combo.
Also fresh for 2012 is ‘Eyesdown’ from Bonono. Under the hands of Arp 101, ‘Eyesdown’ is a with a little mischievous synth-led bottom mover. The package comes laden with remixes from Mike Slott, Mark Pritchard and Leatherette.
Ramadanman and Arpxp represent the drum and bass section tonight, two tracks pulled from the Critical Sound compilation.
The B-boys get repped by El-P and Earl Sweatshirt, and Ezekiel Honig closes, taking us home via Folding Us in on Itself.
Hopefully it will satisfy the ear-wigs.
