One of my favorite instrumentalists representing the midwest and constantly pushing his skills and sonics. Always curious as to what direction or mood he's in next. Get into his catalog too...so many gems (like Coffee King), you won't be disappointed.
A DJ Spinna remix of KING's Red Eye? No flight out for me, I wanna stay here and get lost in the way he reworked this. Perfect complement to KING's already ethereal tones and voices. Love at first listen...
The instruments and Awa's voice have a super healing vibe and presence. I'm also really smitten by the backstory of how she got into singing and some of the cultural nuances and "musical" gender norms of the region this Peulh music sprouts from.
Happy to see a follow-up to Vibracao which still stays in rotation. The feels on #Vibra are just as high plane and high energy. And AbJo is a clever producer, the way some of the samples were used and re-imagined will be appreciated.
