Academy production team member Tony Nwachukwu (Nepa, CD-R) and Lars Bartkuhn (Needs Music) created a Bermuda triangle of jazz funk vibes in the top floor studio: over five days, pulling in the talents of every working pair of vocal chords in the building. Vilja first laid the chorus on the canvas. The Adi Dick added verse one, Anya (Andrea Stuart) and Black Spade (Veto Money) followed suit, before Eavesdrop (Monishia Schoeman) rapped the intro - from West London all the way down to the southernmost tip of Africa.

The Kampala producer's debut LP subverts the dominant paradigm of club music, providing a fresh, dark, and doomy soundtrack that is as meditative as it is danceable. Bandcamp Album of the Day Jun 22, 2021
