Akura Uprock / Leader
Latest single from DJ Vadim’s recently released long player includes original and remixes of Akura Uprock; featuring the rasping vocals of Greg Blackman …( do look out for his forthcoming album with Mr Bird ). We’re taken on a journey, where the buzzing synths, chiming guitars and percussion ….soundtrack an adventure. Handclaps, sweeping synths, chanted vocals and rasping saxophones all play their part in this glorious fusion of Afro Beat and hip hop. And the wry Leader, where Vadim teams up once more with long time collaborator Yarah Bravo. Remixes from Simbad, DJ Oil, Kemet, Jukebox Champions and the mysterious Dead Milky.
