Brussels' leading tropical enthusiast and global groove selector takes two traditional African standards and reshapes them playfully for the floor. "Mesida" is one of his wildest constructions to date, taking a biguine drum track and chant he's applied all manner of SFX and sirens. File under 'post apocalyptic Afro beat'. "Yemana", meanwhile is much more light-hearted, taking a sun-kissed benga standard and anchoring it with a warm, weighted 4/4 kick it's the perfect feel-good foil to the craziness of the A.
