Staff Picks: Africa Express - Egoli

For fans of: Genre spanning grooves and moods with heavy South African roots. (and tons of guests!)

What they're saying: NME’s Thomas Smith pegs the Johannesburg inspired Egoli as a positively scattershot and fun record overflowing with collaborative energy in his recent review, while The Guardian calls it an “end to end party”!

What we say: Seriously this record covers so many genres (rap, folk, disco, beyond) but is still pretty damn cohesive and a really fun listen to boot.

Further listening: Beyond his roll in the Africa Express collective, Damon Albarn has also been a champion of global sounds with his Honest Jons record label.
