Friday Vibes - SkyFall By Soulo Star

Happy Black Friday.

I'll be sharing some tunes on Fridays and for the first post... I have to show love to my WeHeartBeat family. When they are not organising some of the dopest gigs, they get local and international DJs to create mixes for them.

The latest mix is by my brother, Lucky Ntuli aka YoApeTown

With enough of the greats to remind you that they are just that, peppered with the most forward-thinking of newcomers, Cosmic Dust Records maestro Lucky Ntuli aka DJ Soulo Starr compiles a list of some of the best to do it in the international beats scene, laying it out in just short of a deeply exploratory 60 minutes. With the man himself as our guide, Sky Fall takes the scenic route through the ever-shifting terrain of electronic sounds beginning with a percussive rainfall in the form of Sango and Savon. Setting peaks and valleys all in the right places, this sonic journey is often covered in jagged and craggy percussives a la Sango along with the sassy and innovative volcanic eruptions of Kaytranada, right alongside sparse gusts of hot ash from beneath with throwbacks paying tribute to the late Aaliyah, Brandy and Sade. Sky Fall is just a page of a map of Soulo Starr’s wonders where he delves into the globe’s earthiest and groundbreaking territories, citing Evil Needle (FR), Jordan Rakei (NZ) and Atu (MW), bringing all who are rooted to this ever-expanding, boundless genre to common ground.
