New & Noteworthy: Delonte Rivers – Midnight Congas EP

 Peter Bailey (AKA Delonte Rivers).

London’s XVI Records continue to provide top notch underground dance music. For their latest release they welcome a new face to their tight-knit crew of artists. Enter London based Peter Bailey (AKA Delonte Rivers).

Formerly working under the guise of¬† DJ Fortay the three track EP see’s Rivers drawing on a wide array of influences,¬†traversing afrobeat to house and much more.

The EP opens with the title track, an atmospheric cut built around a groove ridden afro vibe and a winding saxophone. Second track Maakye calmly nurtures a more spiritual downtempo and holistic approach, while ‘Fela’s House Party’ (the EP’s closer) weaves together a sense of 70’s Psychedelia and a rolling bassline.

An ear pleasing release thats sets the bar high for the young producer. Turn the volume up high and and dive in below!
