For those that missed the first instalment, our unsigned series looks to build a bridge between some under the radar talent and the various industry influencers that keep up with our content. Our goal is to help budding producers, who we handpick, to be able to find exposure and possibly a home for their yet unreleased productions. Instead of us writing about the producers, we’ve decided to get them to introduce themselves, so without further ado here’s the second in our unsigned series:
Nala – Lamuka
I’m Nala. I started producing and playing in the house party scene in Leeds and Manchester, back in 2010. I’m Massively influenced by the music of Northern and Western Africa, and I’ve always been obsessed with finding those dusty hidden gems. I love using those rhythm heavy, uplifting finds as ammunition to create something new and dance floor ready. I now have a wide array of original material, remixes and edits in the holsters. This years been a mad one so far, playing along side some great names in some great countries from the UK all the way to Ghana! I can’t wait to see whats gonna come next, keep your ears to the ground.
This tune is a remix of the mad experimental 80s track Lamuka by Zazou Bikaye + CY1. I wanted to take the amazing horns and crazy out of its time bassline forward to make something pretty different, something that doesn’t let off, a real stomper.
