Afriquoi share new track ‘Can I Know You (ft Kakatsitsi)’ + Headline show with Soundcrash at Mangle, E8 on 21 April

Wormfood Records & One House Records are very pleased to announce the release of Afriquoi’s latest EP presenting two original tracks channelling afro and jazz fusion, backed with two remixes that rework the tracks for the dancefloor.

From humble beginnings in South London, Afriquoi have spent the last six years developing their own unique diasporic sound drawing on influences from across the African continent and reworking them for the dancefloor. The live show involves virtuoso musicians from Gambia, Congo and the UK and has been blowing the roof off festival stages and venues around Europe. In 2015 Afriquoi released their first album – Kolaba – to a sold out 1200 person audience at London’s Southbank centre.

On the EP’s title track – “Starship” – Afriquoi collaborate with the Mercury Music Award nominated saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, also winner of numerous other awards, and balafon player Moussa Dembele from Burkina Faso. Moussa has toured Europe and Africa extensively with his own band Koroleko. On A2 Hector Plimmer provides a deep electronic reworking, drawing out the soaring melodies from the original composition. Hector’s productions have been garnering lots of support on the radio recently and he releases his own much awaited album – Sunshine – on Albert’s Favourites in March.

On the B side “Can I Know You” is a frenetic collaboration with Kakatsitsi – a group of traditional drummers, dancers and singers from the Ga tribe of Southern Ghana. Since 1996 Kakatsitsi have toured the UK multiple times and have established themselves as one of the leading African traditional groups in the UK. Percolate resident and infamous party starters Krywald & Farrer regularly share the desks with the likes of Floating Points, Jeremy Underground and Motor City Drum Ensemble and provide a fitting house remix on B2.

Wunderkind producer and Majestic Casual Records signee Moglii has sprinkled electronic magic over “Silk Mountain” by Berlin based four-piece Lion Sphere. The joining of two of the most exciting German newcomers of 2017 melds the indie-rock-infused, future soul sounds of Lion Sphere with the swelling synths we have come to recognise from Moglii. “Silk Mountain” was taken from Lion Sphere’s 2016 debut EP The Infinite You.

The band will be touring Europe in April with Mighty Oaks, playing 19 shows in 11 countries for the entire month of April. More details below

The Story So Far

Lion Sphere blend thumping electronic fragments with heavy hip hop grooves, spacious guitar licks and raw vocals. The Berlin four-piece create a mesmerizing fusion of dreamy and soulful sounds, through meticulously airy synths, jazz infused drums and heavy bass. Their modern and unexpected song structures are strung together by hooky melodies that range from delicate falsettos to smoky powerful vocals.

Moglii is the solo project of 24-year-old producer, singer and jazz pianist Simon Ebener-Holscher. The musician spends his time creating unique productions of warm beats, analogue synthesizers and soulful vocal samples.
