New Music You Should Hear

This week, we’re warming up with Waajeed and his genre defying ‘Shango’ EP. It’s just dropped on the Detroit native’s own DIRT TECH RECK imprint. Next we take a jaunt to the horn of Africa and a new compilation of lost Somali music collected by Ostinato Records called ‘Sweet As Broken Dates’. We’re particularly loving this vocal on Aamina Camaari’s ‘Rag Waa Nacab Iyo Nasteexo’.

Staying in that neck of the woods, continent-wise, we treat ourselves to a blast of Shina Williams & His African Percussionists’ disco anthem ‘Agboju Logun’. Then we check out an extended sample from DJ Sports ‘Modern Species’ double 12’ inch released by Firecracker Recordings earlier this month, before leaving you on a bombastic note with Daphni (Caribou’s alter-ego) and his latest, ‘Tin’.
