Still catching up with releases I missed in March, we have DJ Khalab and his first release on award winning record label On The Corner Records titled Zaire E.P. With tribal rhythms, hard-hitting beats and synth-heavy production, DJ Khalab is able to create an eclectic, dance-oriented vibe that is so excellently executed.
The title track “Zaire” is dense with drums, distorted electronic grooves, passionate and soulful vocal samples and a hypnotic that leaves you in a trance. There are remixes from Will LV and Medlar add a different tone to the original, while still maintaining the organic feel of the original track. On tracks such as “Aeh,” you hear passionate vocals from what sounds like a choir of African women, and is backed up by beautiful percussion and electronic rhythms that sound incredibly futuristic.
Please support my friends over at On The Corner Records and DJ Khalab for this incredible EP, and I’m just hoping that there is much more in store in the next year, two. You can listen to Zaire E.P below, and make sure you support the music in any way you can!
