New Tangents In Kampala, London and Nairobi, Vol. 1

Various Artists - New Tangents In Kampala, London and Nairobi, Vol. 1

In November 2019, eight artists from Kenya, Uganda and the UK spent a week in Nairobi together making an album exploring new tangents in soul music. The group, collectively known as Extra Soul Perception, is made up of an eclectic blend of musicians, each innovators in their own fields, each bringing unique knowledge and musical culture to the project. These artists include Faizal Mostrixx (Ug), Hibotep (Ug), K15 (UK), Karun (Ke), Labdi (Ke), Lex Amor (UK), Lynda Dawn (UK) and Maxwell Owin (UK). During each day of the writing camp, the participants worked with a new combination of artists, putting their powers of improvisation and collaboration to the test. The result is a body of work that reflects the range of backgrounds, interests and disciplines in the group, capturing a spirit, unique to a place and time that won't be replicated again; an energy and atmosphere forged by open minds and prodigious talent.
