South African top talent Vanco joins the Afrocentric Records stable with his dynamic ‘Reflections EP’, featuring 2 original collaborations with local vocalists Njabulo Seh on ‘Lutho’ and Thandi Draai on ‘Walls’. ‘Lutho’ is about a love lost and sees Njabulo belt out a heartfelt melancholy vocal that glides over Vanco’s deep, cinematic Afro House grooves. ‘Walls’ is deep, percussive and ripe with earthy beats and sweeping synthscapes as Thandi serves her soulful tones, waxing lyrical on breaking down the walls of a broken heart.
The package includes 3 remixes; the first from the mighty John Tejada (Kompakt/Palette Recordings), who lends his signature lush, deep electronic wizardry on ‘Lutho’; Afrocentric’s Cory Centric amps up tension with a darker vibe, laced with rich percussion on ‘Walls’; and London producer Pablo Martinez delivers a deeply hypnotic version teased with massive synth waves and a potent breakdown.
