I am actually completely obsessed by the electro and modern declination of african music. I know there is actually a big fad about it and the less I can say is : please… don’t stop. Djouls, from Paris DJs, describes very well the rise of this afro revival through the re-edition work of some great labels and the fire of passionate people like Martín Perna. That being said, it’s not really surprising that among the spectators auditory of this emergence, lots of producers have tapped into these acoustic resources to bring them to a new level.
Rock, Afro-House, Pop, Electro… You can hear this african influence nearly everywhere, even, and especially, in one of the most listened of them… Like in this Afro Funk Hip-Hop blend. But before listening, close your mouth and stop breathing, this is a dusty mix… Cough !!
