Future Rhythm Machine drops this May. The title is a reference to the British-Ghanian writer Kodwo Eshun, who “disputes the western futurist pre-occupation with noise in favour of rhythm.” He continues: “it is the rhythm machine which joins the dots between all music of the black Atlantic from afrobeat and highlife to techno, soul and hip-hop… I have always been drawn to the rhythm or groove of any piece of music, much more so than lyrical content for example. When I listen to African music I hear new rhythms, new possibilities and a glimpse into another world.”
Future Rhythm Machine clocks in at just over 30 minutes, and features all new productions. Guest appearances come in the form of Chilean Mamacita, Esa and Sensu.
