Genre-hopping club night Banana Hill present their first release, as they begin to share the music that forms one of the UK's most unique parties. Though taking influence from around the globe, their journey as a label begins in Morocco, with multi-instrumentalist Majid Bakkas reworked for the dancefloor by co-founder Cervo. With both tracks taken from the incredible 2001 album African Gnaoua Blues (Igloo Records), first up is 8-minute groove workout 'Soudani Manayou', a perfect fusion of Gnawa guitar and afro-jazz sensibilities. A club-ready version of 'Mrhaba' leaves the original spirit intact but brings a definitive peak-time bounce, complete with a whirling flute breakdown. Full sleeve artwork comes from Colombia-based artist Bethany Porteous.
