Holy heck, “Blast” is right! The lead track on Esa’s Dekmental Records debut thunders with heavy synth bass and the powerful, captivating vocals of guest singer Pendo Zawose. This is a strong collaboration with fellow Capetonian Narch Beats.
Along with the hefty first track, side b hosts two decidedly lighter house tracks in “Rift Valley (Ft. Abakisimba)” and “Rent-A-Disc”.
“Rift Valley” packs some styling African drums and vocals from guest Abakisimba, while “Rent-A-Disc” has a nice percussive, classic house vibe about it.
Available on vinyl from May 22nd on Dekmental Records.
