Transatlantyk return with a double header informed by the Dark Continent
Label regular Universo (architect of their best EP no less) cooks up a splendid slice of culturally appropriated, campfire heat. It's Graceland era Paul Simon fed through some expertly assembled 21st century software.
On the flip Ryan R (Reynolds maybe ?) offers up Umqondo. As Western Poland's answer to Awesome Tapes From Africa, we'd say he knows from whence he takes. It's a groove so thick even Dr Livingstone would have trouble hacking through it, an immersive ride though to be sure, and one which will make infinitely more sense at 4am Sunday morning than it does at midday on a Tuesday...
