Raz & Afla Launch MoBlack Records – “AfroZone” with new EP Benwa Marafi

Raz & Afla reunite for forward-thinking Afro House EP ‘Benwa Marafi’ First release on MoBlack Records’ newest annex AfroZone.

Welcome to AfroZone, the newest annex to MoBlack Records’ expanding house, a creative space dedicated to the essence of Afro. For AfroZone’s debut release, Raz & Afla reunite with an inimitable two-tracker that resounds the sub-label’s vision in perfect elocution. AZ001 is the label’s genesis as they always imagined it to be. Educing from their tried, tested, and proven transcontinental chemistry, the Hackney-based producer and Ghanian musical maestro render their Benwa Marafi EP, a forward-thinking manifestation of Afro House that breathes the past in unison with the present. 

Organic percussion, convictive tribal drumming, and bright, gritty strings pulsate life into the 7:12 minute journey, while Senegalese inspired vocals siphon soulfulness that ground man to earth, and earth within the body. Quixotic melodies, airy riffs tread Benwa Marafi’s sensual rhythm while elegant electronic tweaks and effervescent synths lend a subtle cosmic touch that unravels a celestial perspective from which earth is one entity.  An impassioned plea out of love and despair, a deliberate chorus of hope into syncretic conviction, Benwa Marafi’s exudes rich tapestries of ethnic sounds, made by man, some, machine, echoing the universality of Afro House and the universe within Afro House.

Shake It Mama rounds off the EP, shaking loose and breaking beat in a vast acoustic space, wallowing in a kaleidoscope of Afro-infused raw materials, mechanical modulations, and funky sonic juxtapositions. This 4:03 minute track is a mental trip for locomotive desires, teeming with faded reverberations, ominous harmonies, and glossy resonance self-fulfilling on ecstatic bass lines and body-binding rhythms.

Music Stars Come Together From Rock To Pop, They’re All United In One Cause – To Save The Planet

“The warnings about global warming have been extremely clear for a long time. We are facing a global climate crisis. It is deepening. We are entering a period of consequences.”— Al Gore

“Born Free” album was released on Minds Behind the Music label only a few weeks before the world came face-to-face with yet another wave of extreme weather when England and Northern Europe fell victim to scorching temperatures. Recent events aside, it hasn’t been a good year for Planet Earth. While monsoon rains have unleashed disastrous flooding in Bangladesh, East Africa was hit with a drought that’s brought millions on the brink of famine. The climate is changing and the most alarming part is that scientists say the worst is yet to come.

The previous fundraising album by Minds Behind the Music included such stars as Simon Kirke of Bad Company, Mungo Jerry and Ric Sanders of Fairport Convention. Thanks to these legendary artists, the release saw mainstream distribution. Now Brad Walsh, Lorenzo Cabanizza, Jay Elle, Tom Tikka, The Remnants, Doctor Zee and many others have come together to raise awareness about the plight our planet is in. Since almost nothing speaks to humans more than music, the label and the artists are hoping that the world will listen … before it’s too late.

Kate Stewart’s New single “The Game” is a royal flush

Kate Stewart

Kate Stewart presents a new single called “The Game,” which displays the realm of not getting played by anyone. This track “The Game” reflects on an opportunity to show power and get back to yourself when you’ve fallen astray. Lyrically saying how it feels to know exactly what you want when you want it. It’s all about playing your own game, one where you have control of the outcome and finding a more self-assured version of yourself, all the while having your own full house.

“The game is the game” is just something that I and all my friends have always said. Whenever I try to explain it to people they never understand, you just have to hear it in context to get it! However I thought it would make a really cool title for a song, and in this instance ‘The Game’ symbolizes not letting anything or anyone get in the way of you or what you’re trying to do. You just have to look forward and enjoy the ride, looking back will only hinder all the progress you’ve made. Don’t let anyone dull your shine, the games the game!” – KATE STEWART
