Since we collected the audio samples in Samburu last year, some of the biggest house and afro-house music producers have been hard at work crafting the Samburu vocals into their signature sound. With less than a month to go for the launch event and release of the VA, the compilation is looking and sounding very special.
The 19 track VA will feature music from; Da Capo, Caiiro, Shimza, Laoulu, Armonica, Xtetiqsoul, Max Doblhoff, Stefan Obermaier, K.E.E.N.E, Umami, Klement Bonnelli, SURAJ, Foozak, Dylan-S, Euggy, St Evo, Lawrence Dix, Sifa, Vitu Shenzi.
Exploring a wide range of sonic array on this VA, there is a track on it for everyone’s taste.
Our launch event will take place on the 30th of November at The Alchemist Bar, a venue that has been a nurturing ground for Midi Minds Kenya in our early years, we will be transforming the place to host 6 artists that featured on the VA, 4 from Kenya (SURAJ, Dylan-S, Foozak & Euggy) and 2 international acts (Armonica and Xtetiqsoul).
We will also be hosting an invite-only documentary screening before the night begins. If you wish to attend this please fill out the form here and we will get back to you with an invite. bit.ly/SOSRSVP
