001 : Daphni Edits Vol. 1
For our first release, we proudly welcome a couple of edits from one of the hottest names in electronic music, someone responsible for one of the biggest and most critically acclaimed albums of 2010.
Both of these first appeared on a mix-cd not too long ago and the interest has been there ever since. On the a-side, we are treated to a mournful yet essentially upbeat afro-workout with some exquisite guitar melodies interlocking with the characteristic vocal. To be filed under ‘Chimurenga’, the Zimbabwean popular music genre based on traditional Shona Mbira music, but played with modern electric instrumentation and lyrics providing social and political commentary. Definitely a record that begs to be heard by a wider audience…
On the flipside, Daphni delves even deeper into worlds unknown, with a re-fix of an ultra-obscure mid-80’s Dutch outfit that sounds like the bastard European offspring of Liquid Liquid.
