AMBIENT SUNDAY: AFROLICIOUS – A DUB FOR MALI EP

More chilled than ambient. Afrolicious release their A Dub For Mali EP on Thievery Corporation’s ESL label. There’s a track to download.

The EP was produced by Rob Garza of Thievery Corporation in an “improvisational atmosphere”. You wouldn’t know it. The track is a laid back mixture of African chants and vocals, jittery guitar, dub rhythms, jazz influences and swing. It’s all terribly tasteful and slightly anaemic. Disappointing.

Blurb: Afrolicious is Pleasuremaker aka Joe McGuire’s foray into African music. Formerly a radio dj at University of Kansas, he relocated to SF where he created and cultivated with his brother Oz McGuire San Francisco’s legendary  weekly party at the Elbo Room called Afrolicious. Working with musicians from all over Africa and the diaspora, this project explores his deep admiration and respect for the rhythms, sounds and musicians from Africa. During one of his gigs he passed a demo to Thievery Corporation’s SF transplant Rob Garza, Garza who really vibed the music and thought the project had potential soon decided to produce  the project, the 1st EP entitled a “Dub for Mali” will be released  this summer on ESL music.
