Gilberto Lima and Dominique Blanc hail from Basel but have a rich afro house sound. Here it comes on the Afroterraneo Music label in the form of a quartet of fresh new tunes.
Lilefo opens up with chunky drums and nice live percussion. It is rich and organic and really gets you in the zone. Amandla then lights things up with more zithering synths and mysterious chords that are layered up nicely over a fat drumline. Keep Living is another deep one with scintillating percussion and this time an angelic vocal adds another layer of soul. Ninguem then closes down with the best tune of the lot – smeared chords, funky drum programming and a rich sense of soul.
There is no mistaking the skills on display in this fine new EP.
