Berlin-based producer Adam Longman Parker announces Colored, his first full-length LP as Afriqua for R&S Records. The album is a celebration of the unifying power of Black culture through the prism of electronic music.

After releasing successful singles "Soul Correction," and "Chronic Cool," and the back-to-back Aleph and Vice/Principle EPs, a full-length album was the ideal format for Parker to expand on the sounds typified in his dancefloor productions. Colored is a natural culmination of Parker's stylistic spectrum, spanning from house and techno to experimental and abstract electronica.

From the ritual chants on "Shout," to Motown's African roots on "Upstream," and the George Clinton-era psyfunk of "Space Dookie," Colored 's diverse musical influences read like a lesson in Black music history. This panoramic approach extends to the album's collaborators as well--lyrical wizard and J.Cole collaborator Salomon Faye, Belgian Afro-pop vocalist Zap Mama, LCD Soundsystem bassist Tyler Pope, and Parker's brother, producer and songwriter Ruven.
