Check the drop from Muntu Valdo as he visited the Aspecks HQ (fresh from his visit to BBC London) to finalise the details for his tour merchandise.

Described in the Financial Times as “a literal one-man band, providing all the singing and playing every instrument from guitar to harmonica, like a Cameroonian Phil Collins…” Muntu has just released his new album “The One and the Many” (available in HMV, iTunes, Amazon and Rough Trade) and is about to embark on a thirty date UK tour with Ladysmith Black Mombaza. Indeed as the Sawa Blues maestro himself says “Good Music Travels Fast!” Check the Sawa Blues print video to below!!

Get your tickets for the album launch at Hoxton Sqaure Bar & Kitchen on Monday 18th April here.

FOKN Bois’ Dunaquest mix
Apr 2011 11

Buy the FOKN Dunaquest in Budapest Album here. AVAILABLE NOW!

Check out this link for a review of the album cut entitled We are the Future (which now also includes a free download):

Aspecks recently provided you with a sneak peak of the productive summer that the FOKN Bois spent in Budapest when we posted about Africa’s FOKN Future. Consequently we had raised expectations for the release of the full mix and of course, despite being busy working on their various solo projects, the FOKN Bois (M3NSA and Wanlov The Kubolor) do not disappoint in the slightest. Hosted by the Irie Maffia Production duo (ELO and Jumo Daddy), the Dunaquest minimix combines their eclectic fusion of hip-hop, funk, reggae and European dance beats with the reflective and optimistic humour of the FOKN Bois’ verbal dexterity to magnificent effect. But don’t just take our word for it as you can listen to the results of their endeavours below.

FOKN Bois meet Irie Maffia Prod.-FOKN Dunaquest Minimix by Irie Maffia
