Senyaka Kekana – Bayanyonyoba/ Don’t Judge Me Bad

Senyaka KekanaThe latest volume in Rush Hour’s Special Series focuses on the work of legendary – if under-appreciated – South African artist Senyaka Kekana, whose 1980s and early ’90s output remains a firm favourite of open-minded crate-diggers.

The EP brings together two tracks from impossible-to-find albums on 12″ for the first time. On the A-side you’ll find “Bayanyoyoba”, a warm and rolling, chant-laden, mid-tempo deep house cut which originally featured on the artist’s cassette-only 1993 set Ma-Gents.

Arguably even better – and that’s saying something – is flipside cut, “Don’t Judge Me Bad”, a 1987 soul cut that draws influence from boogie, AOR rock and jazz-funk. Both tracks are superb and well worth heavy rotation.

Tracklist:
1. Bayanyonyoba
2. Don’t Judge Me Bad
