Berlin dubwise treatment from Basic Channel’s Mark Ernestus, head-to-head with Lagos’ based rhythm force ‘Obadikah’ –
Another extremely solid linkup from continent to continent. A unique soundclash between two musical worlds, very expertly executed on both sides.
Berlin dub techno veteran Mark Ernestus and Nigerian band Obadikah make the link here on this 10″ featuring a three part excursion to ‘April’.
Human rhythm and musicianship, mixed with careful appliance of electronics, sonically sitting in between the functional techno world’s of Berghain and the acoustic, hands-on vivacity of Obadikah and their interpretation of Nigerian tradition.
It’s a unique blend that sits comfortably in between two worlds, able to bring the best of both.
