The Souljazz Orchestra-Dog Eat Dog

The Souljazz Orchestra is back with a new LP that’s released yesterday by Strut Records. There are some new things on this album like vintage synths and drum machines. I’ve always admired the analog feeling of their sound, the addition of synths spice up this great mixture. It feels exciting especially on the two cover songs, Somalian disco-funk legends Dur Dur Band’s Is Yeelyel, and Senegalese the Orchestra Baobab’s Aduna Jarul Naawo.
The first single, which has the least effect that I mentioned above, features a former member of Fela Kuti’s Afrika 70, Mabinuori Kayode Idowu. The video for the song is a collage of the footage from Soviet artist Roman Davidov’s 1963 animation, The Shareholder.
