MBR385 | 2020-05-29  
After doling out stunning edits of Nyaruach's Gatluak last year, Nandu lends his prowess in melody, groove and innovation, positing fertile soundscapes in inspired electronic context as he reinvents MoBlack and Stevo Atambire's talismanic masterpiece, Nayine Oo. MBR385 is a wonder at work, gathering three powerful forces at play, fiddling history, yarning string, and synthesizing tradition, "Late in the Evening." Reviving soul and invoking past sentiments with each strum of the two-stringed North African lute, Kologo music genius Stevo Atambire's Frafra vocals and melismatic maneuver manifests steadfast conviction at the core of this 6:38 dancefloor griot. MoBlack Records founding father and namesake, MoBlack transfuses this vigorous, pelt-seeping energy into an electronic vernacular, from which the Copenhagen native picks up to evolve, in his own nimble way, a sedimentation of texture, color, and luminescence tickled by treble and awakened by bass, melding a bit of the past in the future, not just by design, but of necessity.
