Holy Tongue / Beatrice Dillon / Lamin Fofana / LABOUR

Regular price

Mbalax, a vibrant dance music genre deeply rooted in the cultures of Senegal and The Gambia, undergoes captivating reinterpretations by an array of highly talented artists. Holy Tongue, featuring Al Wootton, Susumu Mukai, and Valentina Magaletti, steer the sound into a weighty post-punk dub realm reminiscent of On-U Sound and 23 Skidoo. Beatrice Dillon electrifies the atmosphere with a sonic approach akin to Mark Fell, Gábor Lázár, and Rian Treanor. Meanwhile, Lamin Fofana weaves hypnotic, psychedelic revisions, and LABOUR intensifies the experience with dual perspectives on the same rhythmic foundation. These reinterpretations breathe new life into the rich tradition of Mbalax, showcasing its versatility and contemporary allure. Housed in a lovely gatefold sleeve, released by brilliant Honest Jon's.
