Trip to Ghana

It was my first trip to Ghana with my fellow DJ/producer Volta45,  and I had an absolutely amazing time. I have had a full album recording with traditional Ga drummers, also had some recordings with Pan African Youth Orchestra, the musicians from Ebo Taylor band and Fante youth drummers. Now I’m back in London and mixing those recordings in my home studio. I will put it up a few taster tunes on SoundCloud when it’s ready!
