Community by Blackph03nix published on 2011/08/14 11:40:23 +0000 The Title “MEH MOGYA” or “MY BLOOD”, when translated from Twi/Akan (a principal native language of Ghana) to English symbolises my intentions of the concept that I originally titled “SAMPLE OF ME”. The aim of the project was to investigate, navigate; sample and re-present sound as a heritage/legacy of my origins. The project samples Highlife music from the 1960’s through to the early 1980’s. Highlife has its origins in Ghana and dates back to the early 1900s. The genre gained increased popularity in the 1950s, continuing into the 60s and 70s, only to see a decline during the 80s/90s at which point a new genre, Hip Life took over as the popular form of music. This EP will be available on vinyl (limited press) and via digital download soon.
