The house and techno veteran's next album is due out on Ibadan in December.
Born in Nigeria and educated in England, Sydenham made his name in New York, DJing at the height of the house era and doing A&R for Atlantic Records. He started Ibadan in 1996 with a run of 12-inches from '90s house group Ten City, and the label has been churning out driving house ever since. Sydenham, who now resides in Berlin, has worked increasingly in techno over the last few years. Animal Social Club features a host of collaborations with Ibadan artists like Quell and Aschka, and bridges the gap between his musical interests. Pitched as a collaboration between Ibadan and Japan's New World Records label, the album is Sydenham's second solo LP.
