British drummer and percussionist Nick Woodmansey aka Emanative shared his take on Pharoah Sanders’ “Hum Allah Hum Allah Hum Allah”, which is to appear on his forthcoming album co-released by the Steve Reid Foundation and Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings. The original recording was part of the 1969 album Jewels Of Thought and featured musicians of the calibre of Lonnie Liston Smith, Roy Haynes, Leon Thomas and Idris Muhammed.
The Emanative album isn’t shy of quality collaborators either, guest musicians include Four Tet & Floating Points, Rocketnumbernine, Finn Peters or Ahmed Abdullah. Set for a release in March, you can pre-order your copy of “The Light Years Of The Darkness” on Bandcamp.
As you certainly heard by now, Kutmah’s Worldwide Family Vol. 2 on Brownswood will be out next week on April 16, 2012. The label did a little interview with the Brighton-born DJ, talking about drawing, his Sketchbook parties in LA, and of course some of the tracks chosen for the compilation.
I have fallen in love with Gaby Hernandez‘s voice since I heard her first on Dimlite’s Outernational Duet, or maybe it was something from Build An Ark, I don’t remember. Unfortunately, I never bothered to check out her solo material, but maybe this one will make me remember that I should!
This one is taken from the forthcoming Worldwide Family Vol. 2 compilation, put together by the great Kutmah and out on Brownswood by the end of the month. Don’t miss!
