昨今UKを中心に俄かに話題を集め始めた、西アフリカはマリ共和国のDJ/トラックメーカー/リミキサー・コレクティボ AFRICA EXPRESS のフルアルバム(2LP/CD)がついにフィジカルで発表。
コンゴ、エチオピア、マリにUKといった様々な地域とルーツを持った面々により2002年に結成。
現在聴けるのは2曲のみだが、派手さを逆に持たせようとしないメインストリームのまさに今の流行を意識した音作りに完全にやられた。TRAP的なハイハットをちりばめ、動と静が融合した非常にクレバーでクールなトラックと、コクのあるボーカルなどなど、コレは NUJABES 顔負けと思ってしまう方も多いのでは?
昨今のEUを中心としたクロスオーバー的なアフロ系クラブミュージックのこれも一つの側面。

“Proof that music is a universally understood language. A celebration designed to bring joy.” Uncut Music collective Africa Express announce the release of a brand new studio album titled EGOLI, coming 12th July 2019 on the newly created Africa Express Records imprint.
Hailed as the most revolutionary force in popular music for two decades, Africa Express was founded in 2006 and brings together musicians from different cultures, genres and generations to break boundaries and offer a new perspective on Africa and its music. Each record and event is unique, based upon on-the-spot collaboration and filled with unique moments of magic; the collective have hosted trips and concerts in Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Mali and UK to date.
Africa Express travelled to South Africa in January of last year to complete an electronic album in just 7 days, a week of discovery, collaboration and music-making. The result is EGOLI – 18 tracks capturing the fresh, joyous sounds of Afro Futurism, straight out of Johannesburg.
Featured artists include Damon Albarn, Blue May, Gruff Rhys, Georgia, Ghetts, Mr Jukes, Nick Zinner, Remi Kabaka, Otim Alpha and Poté as well as emerging and established stars of the buzzing South African music scene including BCUC, Blk Jks, Dominowe, Faka, Infamous Boiz, DJ Spoko, Mahotella Queens, Moonchild Sanelly , Muzi, Morena Leraba, Nonku Phiri, Radio 123, Sibot, Sho Madjozi, Zola 7, Zolani Mahola (Freshly Ground) and Maskandi guitar legend Phuzekhemisi.
