From Lagos to London, via Lille, France, AfroZen Orchestra's debut 7-inch breaks new grounds in terms of mixing traditional African rhythms with modern, upfront beats and breaks.
French producer and dj Housatonic's tight groove, sprinkled with fiery saxophones, uplifting guitars, insane percussions and balaphone, and sparkled with Centrafrican singer Chancellor Dedianga's catchy lyrics and amazing background vocals, all combines into a dizzying maelstrom of positive energy --- a higher state of consciousness?
There's absolutely no escaping the dancefloor on this one, so don't sleep on it!
"Highlife and afrobeat meet house and broken beats in this heavyweight floorfiller. Uplifting vocals, insane percussion, fiery saxophones: the sweat from the hot African sun subtly blends with the sweat from urban dancefloors worldwide... Salty!" (James E. Blunted, Rolling Stoned Magazine)
"Dense dance music!" (Chuck U. Farley, Vacuity Fair)
