Esya ‎– Absurdity Of ATCG

The most active member of Savages. Every time I check what she’s up to, I hear a new project with an album/EP/single from her. That’s one of the reasons why we love her. She released first recordings of her EP series under this moniker, Esya back in 2018, and 2019 mid-year she greeted us with the first part of “Absurdity of ATCG”. Now we have the second part. Check her Bandcamp!

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.
