Release Date:04/28/2015;Notes:Featuring contributions from Vampire Weekend bassist Chris Baio, Senegalese singer Baaba Maal, London-based artist Seye, and Jutty Ranx's Jutty Taylor, this LP for Moshi Moshi is a true step forward for The Very Best. The sounds of lead single Let Go showcase a handle of both melody and production that we could only expect from such a stellar lineup. It's backed up by cuts like Hear Me where trip-hop inspired production creates a backdrop for the distinctive vocals of singer Esau Mwamwaya. Recorded in the M'dala Chikowa Village of Malawi, this release gives a legitimate taste of the sounds coming from the horn of Africa but pairs them with a producer's Polish and artistic flair that is not present in other projects.;Track List:1.
