Samuel Yirga – Guzo. The fabulous debut from the young Ethiopian pianist features funky bass lines, traditional Ethiopian classics, reworked psychedelic soul, upbeat Latin and painfully beautiful piano solos.
With their clean and progressive fractal loops. SND smash the naive perception that techno is just harsh 303s and four-to-the-floor kickdrums. Also sound designers, they synthesise every individual sound, without allowing experimentation to prevent them creating music that can actually be enjoyed. ‘15/16’ is their new vinyl-only single on Pan Music.
My song for this week is ‘Niggas in Paris’, from Jay-z and Kanye West‘s album Watch the Throne. Explosive, powerful, but also ironic and funny, this beat simply can’t get out of my head!
I never get tired with the soundtrack to one of my favourite films Paris. It’s perfect for a relaxing Saturday morning, especially Wax Tailor‘s track ‘Seize The Day’ (featuring Charlotte Savary).
