‘Sons D’Afrique’: new single on Breakin Bread – Fat City’s Record of the Week!

I’m pleased to announce that my second single for Breakin’ Bread ‘Sons D’Afrique’ / ‘Dub Afrique’ is now available and has already been picked up by Fat City as their Record of the Week. Info and audio previews appear below. You can purchase this single via mail order from Fat City here.

Side A: Sons D’Afrique

From the Breakin’ Bread Press Release:

‘Sons D’Afrique’ is an uptempo Afro Beat influenced bubbler combining swinging brush drums, a prominent bass groove, a funky guitar lick, driving horns and infectious chants to create a slice of dancefloor magic. Holding back an explosive bass groove to the latter half of the track, this is a cut full of surprises, drawing influence and sample material from disparate corners of the musical spectrum and combining them in a style that owes as much to the musical movement of Fela as it does to contemporary club music.

Side B: Dub Afrique

From the Breakin’ Bread Press Release:

“Continuing in the theme set by the A-Side, ‘Dub Afrique’, although the more uptempo of the two tracks, offers a more laid back approach to the Afro sound. Subtle flutes and a warm yet punchy bass sit atop a fast paced Afro drum groove which gives way briefly to a half time dub influenced interlude before returning to its full pace conclusion. Offset with spoken word interjections and dub echo this is a track full of atmosphere and contrast offering a unique take on the Afro sound.
