The duo will release an album for Strut's Information Inspiration series in fall.
The acclaimed set reaches its fourth edition with the duo. Both hardly need an introduction: Allen is, of course, the legendary percussionist who helped popularize Afrobeat, while Finnish electronic musician and jazz maverick Jimi Tenor has released music on Warp and PIAS. The two came together, as is usual for the series, and recorded the album in less than a week, resulting in a loose collection of tunes. For a taste of the results, you can take a look at the teaser trailer below.
