ltd 2019 repress .. now a firm favourite in many a dj’s record bag, nigerian disco-boogie king steve monite’s hit “only you” (featured on soundway’s recent “doing it in lagos” compilation), is given a rework by sofrito s own frankie francis. on the b-side, nick the record teams up with idjut boys’ dan tyler to take on “hafi deo” - a beautiful taste of breezy tropical congolese pop from tabu ley rochereau.
KEELE / MULVA EP (INC. SILVERLINING & MARLON REMIXES)
12" Vinyl UK12.06.19
a collection of usual suspects (luca cazal and black, brigante), omnipresent foxes (andy blake, silverlining) and a brand new name (marlon) deliver a 2 sided affair full of contrast. 3 dimensional and crisp on one side and crunchy & dusty on the other.
after numerous features and collaborations obenewa, kaidi tatham and dego combine together to form blacks & blues.three song based dance tracks to fill the void of underground vocal club music. spin is flavoured with s.a house & afrobeatz whilst obenewa sings about the wonder that is love. you know the feeling moves towards the funk that is synonymous with 2000black and dont know why (chant for love) is purely the marriage between reggae and jazz.
