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!

Afrobeat Vibration Live DJ Mix

It was another great show with the mighty Dele Sosimi Afrobeat Orchestra. The band kicked off with the Fela Kuti classic “Black Man’s Cry” and “Zombie”, they delivered 3 hour marathon live in purple haze including unreleased original tunes. For those who missed, I have recorded my DJ mix for you to listen and feel the vibe. Next one will be on Friday 30 November at the Jazz Cafe. It will be our 10th Anniversary so save the date!
