Back in the late 1960s, underground magazine Source helped increase interest in avant-garde music by bundling together a record and an arty, printed publication. Some 50 years on, Swiss project FLEE is attempting something similar. They say that each edition will combine a long-playing record exploring a specific musical genre or movement with a beautifully presented, screen-printed "journal" containing essays from experts in the field. Issue one focuses on Kenyan Benga music. On one side of the record you'll find a trio of classic cuts from pioneers of the style. A trio of contemporary producers offers modern interpretations on the flip, with Africaine 808's killer re-edit of "Aryango Maggy" by Migori Superstars standing out. Brilliant stuff, all told.
