Following our sold out debut vinyl release with Moroccan musician Majid Bekkas, we return with music from slightly closer to home.
Manchester-based drummer, DJ & producer Contours joins multi-instrumentalist XOA for a collaborative 12" of deep, percussive afrocentric house grooves.
"Too Much Talking" is a cosmic dancefloor heater, with dubbed-out synths, vintage guitars, fat live bass and as the name suggests, a talking drum that underpins the whole track. Things head a little deeper on "Express" with rolling percussion, heavy sub and subtle influences of afrobeat & jazz.
Following releases on labels such as Rhythm Section, Soundway, Shall Not Fade & Tru Thoughts between the pair, it’s a real statement of intent to kick off the year!
We're very excited to celebrate the launch of the record with an all-night session with XOA, Contours and Cervo playing back-to-back.
