The first twelve inch to prelude Mr Raoul K's album 'African Paradigm'. The a-side kicks off with a track, darker and gloomier than usual. Whirling pads and driving beats take twists and turns while diggin deep into the dark. After a while Sona Diabate's vocals kick in and 'Tamale' takes off. Her powerful delivery provides some light in the shadows and the track begins to swing between 'putting you in a trance' and 'raise your hands in the air'. Elegance and energy.
On the flipside Kaito remixes 'African Paradigm' into twelve minutes of floating bliss. Very moderate drums lead to a yet irresistable groove. Mr Raoul K's trademark organic sounds and traditional Ivorian instruments deliver glistening soundscapes - emblazed with mysterious vocals. Like dancing and moving through meadows watching flowers and butterflies moving around... like your feet stopped touching the ground.
