Leboana EP

Tswex Malabola

PNT001 | 2018-06-08  

The Leboana EP signals the birth of established online radio station Pintura as a label. The first release on the imprint exhibits the talents of Botswana local Tswex Malabola with a 2-track EP that explores, and weaves between, modern afro, deep and melodic house.

The A-side, No Forests In Botswana, reflects on the barren expanses of the artist's homeland and the mystic nature of the African savannah, or 'Leboana' in the local Setswana language. It is a hypnotic, big room arrangement with powerful & driving lower end that builds to an arresting moog hook. The track is dark with intoxicating tribal rhythm, a sonic excursion to the plains of Africa at night.

The B-side, Arsenic, boasts equal strength as a peak time afro house production, and shows initial restrain before an all-consuming build takes it to epic status. Expertly-crafted African percussion sections, anxious synth lines and delicate strings finish what is a journey-like piece that seduces the listener from the first bars.
