It’s the first post on here for a while since on top of taking some holidays I’m also just back from a week in Kinshasha in The Democratic Republic of Congo where alongside other producers including Kwes, Actress, Richard Russell, T.E.E.D, Jneiro Jarel, Dan The Automator, and with the amazing local musicians and instruments, we made an album in 7 days.

Such an amazing experience… feels quite unreal somehow…

Damon Albarn organised the DRC Music project alongside Oxfam who have been running a tumblr which will be posting photos and clips from the trip over the coming weeks. The album will come out on Warp later in the year.

Here is a short preview clip of ‘Hallo’.

I was fortunate enough to record a track with Jupiter Bokondji, a poet, singer, actor with the most amazing voice. Check out the film ‘Jupiter’s Dance’. Here’s a photo from our session.
