Premiere: Qwasa Qwasa – “Simba” for LowUp Records :.

Belgian party inflammatory crew and record label LowUp have been championing the young generations exploring thier cultural roots or influences under an electronic music bed as we witnessed last year with Gan Gha promising rise. Now another young member Qwasa Qwasa is showing solid skills to enter the danceflor premiere league with the new “C’est quoi ça?” EP. After the splendid “Kiss Me” with a beautiful sample of Ladysmith Black Mambazo premiered by Couvre X Chefs, we now have the blog premiere of “Simba” track where he explores West African chants together with its urban diaspore interpretations by sampling Enzo Siffredi´s “She Babao”, perfect incorporation of Likembés/Mbira percussive harmonies and a contemporary electronic rhythm that escapes from the obvious construction patterns provided by nowadays trendy genres, instead opting for blending his powerful basslines with expanding and intelligent groove construction. Grab “C’est quoi ça?” EP on Bandcamp, Beatport and next days in all digital stores and streaming services.
