Great to see the Autonomous Africa series returning for its 3rd year this week – this time joined by General Ludd, JD Twitch and regular contributor Auntie Flo. For those that don’t already know: Autonomous Africa is a label curated by JD Twitch focused on raising awareness and money for the people of the Mtandika village in Tanzania, Africa.
Such a great cause has inspired some great music to be produced; this year being no exception. Midland kicks things off nicely with ‘Safi’, a track orientated around marshalled drum loops, warm fuzzy synths and recurring tribal vocals. General Ludd’s is a more percussion heavy affair, offering intricate, hollow drum patterns whilst Auntie Flo builds around a great vocal sequence in ‘Daabi’. JD Switch’s ‘Maya’ merges long sustained synth notes with lovely drum patterns before subsiding to an aptly poignant vocal to sign off the compilation.
