Andrea Benini – El Guerrero #electronic #downtempo

Andrea Benini is from Italy but based in Berlin. He describes himself as “I am a drummer, composer, producer, dj and brainchild of Mop Mop.” His origins are all European but on El Guerrero the inspiration is Africa. Taken from Drumphilia Vol 1, (out on 22 June) which he says is “a journey inspired by early African Electronic music and modern beats.” For me what makes it stand out is the tribal drumming set gainst some delightfully optimistic kalimba (and I’m a total sucker for anything with a nice kalimba to the forefront). Kalimba house is where it’s at, people.
