Music Is My Sanctuary DJ Mix

During this lock down, all you can do is stay at home and listen to music. Enjoy my new DJ mix I did it exclusively for Music Is My Sanctuary.

“This is a strictly vinyl-only mix of deep afro latin house and disco that you can relax to as much as dance to. I love percussive and jazzy music and always try to mix smoothly so the blends flow like a river. Hope you feel the vibe too.”

Pre-order the vinyl LP from: https://olindorecords.bandcamp.com

Following a successful EP in 2019, featuring remixes from ​Osunlade ​& ​Pocz​, ​Olindo Records​ are proud to present “​Wono​”, the debut collaborative album from ​Koichi Sakai​ &​ Afla Sackey​. The album is a deep exploration of ​Koichi’s ​love of both electronic and West African music, in close collaboration with Ghana-born master percussionist, singer, band leader, teacher and songwriter, Afla Sackey​.

The album features 7 tracks ranging from the meditative “​Yamb​”, which features master kora player Kadialy Kouyate​, to the acid infused, slow house workout of “​Niege​”. Passing through a contemporary highlife take on advance single “​Suolo​” and a shorter version of the previously released “​Jingo​”.

“​Wono​” means “​It’s Ours​” in Ga. As in that which you desire, ​will be yours in time, even if you do not possess it now. So don’t rush brother, patience is a virtue.
