Review

Nyako’ is our 7th vinyl release here at OtC and it’s a big one. South African producer ‘Behr’ created ‘Nyako’ together with Makadem during a Santuri Safari session at Sondeka Festival in Kenya. The E.P is 4 cuts that build in brilliance from the original which has extremely broad appeal. Indian producer ‘Daisho’ delivers a straight ahead 4 x 4 house groover, south-London production duo Modified Man swing their analogue machines into action for a heady synth adventure, which is just a bit broken. Berlin-based duo of Dirk Leyers and DJ Nomad (Hans Reuschl) are the ideal pairing to merge technology and tradition together as AFRICAINE808 bring up the rear with a balearic sensation to round off the EP. Makadem is a talented musician and vibrant performing artist from Kenya. He’s a figurehead of the Benga scene in Nairobi. His stage presence and powerful vocal delivery, had him likened to the legendary Fela Kuti. Makadem innovates by bringing traditional African instrumentation, story telling and contemporary production methods together.
