Afrobuddha’s successful debut “Obame”(2011) was supported by many respected DJs such as Francois Kevorkian, Laurent Garnier, Osunlade and more. Since 2012, the duo have been hosting a monthly show “Spirits Frequency” on London’s NTS Radio and continue to mix roots and electronic music with a deep spiritual twist.
The long awaited 2nd release, “Zone” is a mid-tempo percussive production featuring Ghanaian master drummer Afla Sackey and his thundering congas and djembe on 3/4 beats, topped with cosmic analog synth sounds and vintage tape delay effects.
The single’s artwork, a visual expression of the music and philosophy of Afrobuddha, was skillfully illustrated by Tokio Aoyama, Japan’s rising artistic talent who has produced work for George Clinton, Snoop Lion, Shafiq Husayn, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Dudley Perkins and Ras G. The limited 180g heavy weight vinyl will be exclusively available at the launch prior to its official release on January 20th.
Also from 2014, Afrobuddha presents “Spirits Frequency” on NTS Radio moves to a new time slot; every 4th Saturday 4pm-6pm (GMT). Coincidentally, the shows start date is the January 18th – the same date as the launch party.
Brilliant Corners is Dalston’s latest venue, and has an analog audiophile sound system. It’s been inspired by The Loft, Beauty and The Beat and many other audiophile parties; this place has not only the great sound, but also has a cozy living room vibe, and is accompanied by carefully selected Rum, Tequila, Beer, Wine and Japanese food. The party kicks off from 9pm and is open until 3am. It’s the only late-night session at Brilliant Corners this month, and will certainly be a deep journey, to get you into the “Zone”…
