New music from Spiritual Jazz through to Amapiano grooves out of South Africa. The Spiritual Jazz was provided by Jimetta Rose & The Voices of Creation with their new arrangement of Roland Kirk’s classic original from 1969’s Volunteered Slavery. Amapiano courtesy of Vigro Deep. We went looking for Aba Shanti at Notting Hill Carnival and stumbled into a heavy Amapiano session. A total revelation! (Also, a big shout out to Dave Hucker and DJ Sylvester who got the hips swinging at their Latin Rave Sound System).
More from the extraordinary DOMi & JD Beck NOT TIGHT release, two very fine young musicians with the music world in their hands. We have an Australian supergroup ’30/70′, a boss nova meets Ghanian Highlife version of Round Midnight from Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, and Afrobeat out of Tel Aviv with Shotnez, and a whole lot besides.
Very sad to feature Angus Gaye aka Drummie Zeb from Aswad; composer and trumpeter Jaimie Branch; as well as founder member of the Jazz Warriors who played on the reggae scene, African scene as well as with the Brit Funkers: Hi Tension, Incognito, Cymande, was an educator as well as running his own Club Skaaville outfit, Ray Carless due to their premature passing. May they Rest In Peace with a perfect soundtrack.
