OxygenBuntu is a name you need to take note of, this up and coming producer is insanely talented and we are blessed to have Soyo Soyo as the first in a trilogy of releases coming out on Afrocentric Records. The original mix is an Afro Tech monster of a groove with dark swirling strings high hitting synth’s and bone shaking percussion, all blended perfectly with the vocals man of the moment Idd Aziz. This will be Afrocentric Records second release with the Kenyan maestro, on vocals and his performance as usual is outstanding. This is a journey of a track coming in 9:22 with every second made to count. On remix duty is another up and coming talent Gumz, with releases on Aluku Records and MoBlack, as well as his latest release featuring regularly on Black Coffee’s Lockdown sets. His remix is percussion heavy, with delicate, piano and a more downtempo dreamy feel. And ohhhhhhhh the breakdown is definitely gonna bring the dance floor into a crescendo when it drops.
“This is one of our finest releases to date” – Cory Centric (Afrocentric Records)
DJ Jim Mastershine (Drumatic Soul) delivers a much harder Afro tech remix with his signature “chugging” sound, tickling keys, serious sounding synth and heavy percussion, and using subtle vocal effects to really highlight Idd Aziz pleading vocals. Next up with have a new name to the game Dubai based Jacey he brings a stripped down remix built around a haunting synth line, and some heavyweight drums, topped off with some nifty key work. Watch out for this producer as you will be hearing a lot more from him. If the 4 tracks in package weren’t enough OxygenBuntu finishes the package off with a Club mix , full of eerie strings , a persistent droning synth and some slamming filtered effects to top off a BOSS package.
