The Cape Town-based band will release their debut LP in September.
The core of John Wizards consists of band leader John Withers and Rwandan singer Emmanuel Nzaramba, though they have now expanded to a seven-piece outfit. A press release describes their sound as a "combination of African music, R&B and chamber pop, filtered through gentle electronic arrangements that cross-pollinate with South African house, Shangaan Electro and dub." The album will follow recent LPs on Planet Mu from RP Boo, Solar Bears and Heterotic.
