Sol Power All-Stars
A1 - Djidjo Vide ft. Elikeh
B1 - Tell Me Why
Vinyl: OUT NOW (red wax!)
Just in time for summer, Sol Power Sound is proud to present its 4th release, the Djidjo Vide EP, a 1-2 punch of Afro house by label heads, the Sol Power All-Stars.
Djidjo Vide, the title track on the A-side, features DC (via Togo) Afrobeat band, Elikeh. It’s a vibey slice of propulsive Afro house about finding joy in the face of hardship. Massama Dogo’s commanding vocals (sung in Mina) combined with the driving bass line, and aggressive horns (performed by DC’s Sticky Bear) make Djidjo Vide a summer sure shot for a roof-top jam, beachside dance floor, or nightclub near you.
The B-side, Tell Me Why is darker and deeper, chock full of percussion, a chopped vocal sample, and in-your-face afrobeat horns (performed by Matt Rippetoe and Joe Herrera of DC’s the Harry Bells). It’s a late-night beatdown that will set things off proper in a dark room!
Support from: Jose Marquez, Soul Clap, Cottam, Daz-i-kue, Philou Louzolo, Nadastrom, Dawit Eklund (1432R), DJ DRM (Bastard Jazz / Wonderwheel), Adam Gibbons (Uhuru Afrika), DJ Cortega (Dakar), Ausar, Adrian Loving, Panama Cardoon, DJ Taha (Khartoum), Lil Dave (Illvibe Collective), Stevie G (Bali), Chris Brooks (ESL)
