Soundani Manayou​/​Mrhaba (Cervo Edits)

 

We are very proud to present our first official release!
Though taking influence from around the globe, our journey as a label begins in Morocco, with multi-instrumentalist Majid Bakkas reworked for the dancefloor by co-founder Cervo.With both tracks taken from the incredible 2001 album ‘African Gnaoua Blues’ (Igloo Records), the A-side features 8-minute groove workout ‘Soudani Manayou’, a perfect fusion of Gnawa guitar and afro-jazz sensibilities.
On the flip, a club-ready version of ‘Mrhaba’ leaves the original spirit intact but brings a definitive peak-time bounce, complete with a whirling flute breakdown.
Full sleeve artwork comes from Colombia-based artist Bethany Porteous.

Early support from Auntie Flo, Hunee, Optimo, Thris Tian, Stamp The Wax, Banoffee Pies, Mr Bongo and more.
