Afrocentrist Philou makes his debut on Basic Fingers with a trio of deep-seeded treats comprising one original and two game-changing edits. This homage to the Senegal/Mali mountain region softly ignites with the cosmic yearns and mild acid grounding of "Lumumba's Revenge". It sets the scene for two takes on regional traditions; "Tartit's Tribe" adds a driving afrobeat and hypnotic swing to an ancient Tombouctou desert song while "Fadimata's Dibabba" is a dense and inebriating weave of Senegalese instruments and chants.
