New album coming out in February from Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate

Next month Cumbancha Discovery will be releasing Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate's debut album Faya. The collaboration between a rapper/beatboxer/singer-songwriter from Syracuse, NY and an electrifying African kora sensation from Guinea pushes genre boundaries and has already earned raves across Europe.

from their bio: The well-worn and often overblown expression "music is a common language" has never been more apropos in the case of Joe Driscoll & Sekou Kouyate. US-born, England-based Driscoll speaks no French and Kouyate, who hails from the West African country of Guinea, little English. When they were brought together at the Nuit Metis (Mixed Night) festival in Marseille, France in 2010 and given a week to produce a concert, music was the only way they could communicate.

It turns out, they had a lot to "talk" about, and their first meeting sparked a collaboration that led to the formation of a band, the recording of an album, over 120 concert dates across Europe and rave reviews. Driscoll contributes the rapping, looping, beatboxing and songwriting talents he developed growing up in Syracuse, New York, and during his own successful recording career. Kouyate, already a phenomenon in African music circles, has blown minds and ears with his hypersonic electrified riffs on the kora, bringing the exalted West African harp into the 21st Century with use of distortion peddles, effects and previously-unimagined technical prowess. Together, Driscoll and Kouyate blend hip-hop, spoken word, funk, and soulful, accessible rock with Afrobeat, reggae and irrepressible African grooves.

The 'Faya' album is set for a February 18th release date. The album has 10 songs on it, and the title track is available as a free download via the widget below:

Here is a great video showcasing what they do at their live shows, so amazing to watch the two of them in action on stage together:

Introducing Dupree

Dupree is a fairly unique musical project. From the Dupree website: "The idea for the Dupree project was to make it a never ending collaboration between as many different Musicians, Singers & Producers around the world as possible, taking in as many different genres & influences along the way."

Dupree is a producer from Sydney. The great thing about this project, is not only wonderful music, but so far the songs are all free. Be sure to show Dupree some love by following him on Soundcloud and liking the facebook page (links below). The music from the project is a unique take on downtempo music and we can't stop listening to these songs.

The first song we want to share with you is his most recent collaborative effort : "Berlin - Don't Stop". Here is what Dupree had to say about this song: "This is the second original track to come from the Dupree project & really starts to show the idea behind the whole thing, collaborating musicians from all over the world into one piece of music.

This song started out on a train ride from Stuttgart to Berlin with a bunch of samples & the majority of the instrumental backing was put together while locked away from some unseasonably cold Berlin summer weather, from here some super talented musicians leant their talents on the track.

Johannes Bader (Hans Solo) recorded in Berlin, Germany playing acoustic guitar & charango
Filippo Gregoretti recorded in Rome, Italy playing piano
Sharif Darmansjah recorded in Brisbane, Australia playing saxophone
Ian Peres (Wolfmother) recorded on the Gold Coast, Australia playing keys"

Here is Berlin - Don't Stop from Dupree - free to stream and download:

The first song from the project is called "Sydney - On The Run" - also free to stream and download:

Happy New Year and the launch of Dancefloor Mayhem Recordings!

I am back from vacation and very excited to announce the launch of the Dancefloor Mayhem Recordings digital label. Our first release is a 2-track techno EP from seaclash. You can preview and purchase the tracks via the widget below ::

seaclash bio:

seaclash was born and raised in Italy. He developed a passion for music as a boy - his father was a musician and his brother is a famous musician in Italy.

He started playing drums when he was 10. At the age of 11 he went to New York for vacation with his father for 3 weeks, and that trip opened his mind to a fresh vision of music.

He currently plays with an experimental band named String Theory, as well as being in several other bands spanning a range of genres. His love for electronic music started when he was 12 via the 90's big beat scene in England.

He started to produce more electronic music at the age of 16. In October 2013 he moved in Berlin to be motivated by the amazing producers and clubs that feature a great variety of techno as well as other electronic genres.

His debut EP, ‘Reconsider’ is a two-track EP that will be his first release, as well as the first release on the Dancefloor Mayhem digital label.

The ‘Reconsider EP’ is just the beginning. seaclash is looking forward to 2014 as he seeks to establish himself as a name to watch in the world of techno.
