Woohoo!!! Been waiting to share this one for waaaay too long. Mixing traditional Nigerian Fuji music with deep sub bass, “Oluko” gives you the first taste of my upcoming Mystery Trip Vol.II mixtape – dropping July 10th on Bastard Jazz Records. This project is all about going back to my roots: pulling out obscure vinyls from my global collection, then lovingly chopping, remixing and editing them into new tracks with a contemporary edge and classic Captain Planet touch. All 9 edits have been blended, along with other audio samples and field recordings, into a 45min mix, which will be printed to cassette tapes like my earliest mixes from the late 90’s. Similar to Mystery Trip Vol.I, which was listed in Sasha Frere-Jones “Best Music Of 2012” (thank you very much), Vol.II leads you on a psychedelic journey to destinations around the world, where you are drawn out of your sonic comfort zone via a soundtrack that bridges styles of music from Asia and Africa to South America, The Caribbean and beyond.
Press play and begin the trip… Also for those who dig it, please support by pre-ordering the cassette tape or the 12″ vinyl and receive a download link. Then share the sounds and spread them widely!
