Ebo Taylor Appia Kwa Bridge

Ebo Taylor - Appia Kwa Bridge

After his first studio album in so many years, 'Love And Death', with the Afrobeat Academy (which includes some legendary Poets of Rhythm members!), and an absolute must-have of a double compilation, 'Life Stories' (if you haven't heard this one yet, stop what you are doing right now and correct this asap!), our favorite Ghanean musician and producer, Ebo Taylor is back with a second original album, to be released april 17th on Strut Records. This time there's no trying to appeal to the afrobeat scene, this is a highlife affair, and a marvelous one with a heavy but delicate sound. Grant Phabao added his magical production skills on two tracks of the album, 'Abonsam' and 'Assom Dwee'.

DJ Guarana & Gino Rossi - Latino Party!

Paris DJs' second virtual release is a mix of samba and electronic grooves, with an undeniable measure of humor that revels in the duality of being both respectfully influenced by and satyrically critical of the Latin-meets-electronic music sound. The music in itself is a nice mix of Latin percussion and melodies, done up in a smooth, slightly French nu-jazz style.
