'We can be one & Mend to Pieces'
Afrocentric Records / AR0003
Cory Centric returns with release number 3 from his new imprint Afrocentric Records this time showcasing the outstanding talents of rising star XtetiQsoul.
XtetiQsoul first release on Afrocentric Records highlights his unique style with three tracks which showcase his talent and ear for sound.
We can be one is a driving dance floor filler featuring the vocal talent of newcomer Malvesant, a consistent thumping baseline with haunting strings, melodic keys and a cinematic breakdown that Ennio Morricone would be proud of, add to this the We can be one dub which flips the script on the original to take into deeper territory whilst maintaining the drive of the Original.
Mend to Pieces can only be described as an Afro-Tech Banger with a unique use of hand claps which gives the track a hypnotic feel supported but subtle use of guitar stabs which makes the track a straight heads down groover.

About Afrocentric Records
"After running Centric Music for 7 years I started Afrocentric Records with the aim of showcasing some of the high quality house music coming out of the African Continent, which I feel is too easily lost in the stacks of new music being released. I want to provide a platform for these talented producers and artists to expose them to a wider audience by releasing their music across the world in Digital and vinyl format as well as getting selected tracks remixed by producers who you dont usually associate with the Afro house Genre." - Cory Centric
