The heavy sound-clash electro carrying the swing. Snippets of balafon and djembe over vibed-up kuduro and coupe decale rhythms. From originators to bedroom innovators — ten years of hits.
Tuareg rock by the cellphones hit-maker, recorded on location in Niger: a blend of electrifying, distorted guitar and the sweet melodies of Saharan folk. Anguished sob-stories, plus a few classics.
Homemade, electronic, Sahel hip-hop. The Saharan Cellphones wonder, branching out: spaced-out, anthemic compounds of autotuned raps, pitch-bending soft synths and glitchy beats.
