Description

Strapline: Brand new signing XOA maintains a foundation in broken beat and house music, while drawing from classic Afrobeat, funk and jazz.

Overview Copy:

Headed up by multi-instrumentalist (and Gentleman's Dub Club member) Nick Tyson, XOA fuses golden era 1970s Afrobeat with deep grooves and contemporary electronic productions sizzling with analogue synths, guitars and percussive rhythms. Collaboration has always been at the heart of the project, with an emphasis on live instrumentation, crucial to transmitting a rich energy on the tracks.

Hailing from London, Tyson has been building a keen following with his live gigs and DJ sets, including a sell-out live show at the Jazz Cafe featuring Eva Lazarus and Dele Sosimi on vocals. The new release on Soundway reflects his steady progression towards sophisticated production and collaborative processes, as well as his ability to effortlessly cross multiple genres.

"Spicy percussion wraps itself around those layers of undulating electronics, a fascinating fusion of culture and sound." - Clash Magazine

For fans of: Yussef Kamaal, Dele Sosimi, Sub-Motion Orchestra, Susso
