We know from the release of 'When The Sun Rises' last month that Kid Fonque has got his finger on the new talent that is coming out of South Africa, specifically, Pretoria's EMAMKAY.

Like 'When The Sun Rises' (review HERE) still into his inner D'Angelo/Dilla/Flying Lotus with that added bonus of the backing 'jazz' band, the Sounds Like U Quintet: Jeffery Mahachi (d), Michael Nkuna (trumpet) with Bokang Ramatlapeng on vocals and EMAMKAY (MC/piano/keyboards).

It's very Futuristica Music with echoes of Dwele and Roy Hargrove (RIP) on the 'Golden Era' Maida Vale sessions with DJ Gilles Peterson.  

Yes! It's that good and it make sense (in this crazy world).

The forthcoming album 'Love Is Energy' is due at the end of March and if the other tracks are as cool as what we've heard so far....


Title: Sense

Release date: 3rd March, 2023


Catalog Number : STB21 / Digital / Bandcamp
