Jinku, self-proclaimed space monkey hit OtC wax for the first time.
The producer is one fifth of the East African Wave, a collective of young DJ Producers who are revolutionising the East African arts scene. Jinku delivers us a deep Balearic remix of fellow Nairobian, Makadem’s ‘Nyako’.
Black Classical – JeJe
Discordant-Ra-like organ meets Brazilian poly-rhythmic percussions bludgeoned with a heady slab of rave breaks make for more brilliance from the incomparable and elusive savant Black Classical. A firm fave of Gilles Peterson.
Collocutor – Agama (Contours Remix)
Boundary pushing Contours brings a new swing to the Agama groove, following the underground smash from Al Dobson Jr back where it all started with the release of Tamar Collocutor’s 2014.
Daisho – Simba
Sprightly producer Daisho from the Indian hotbed of Pune brings a layered percussive heater roaring with synth b-lines and rightly tipped to be in the realms of and early Four Tet mover.
Penya – Search It Out (Peter Croce’s 4AM Fix)
Detroit’s Rock Steady Disco Bossman, Peter Croce brings it deep into the early hours for this euphoric 4am fix of OntheCorner’s afro-latin-electronic party experimentalists, Penya.
