AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #5: JUST A BAND
OkayAfrica have been upping eclectic Nairobi trio Just A Band since day one — from the time their blaxploitation spoof became “Kenya’s first viral hit” to their recent BLNRB collaborations and Okaysummer Party throw-downs.
For Africa In Your Earbuds #5, JAB’s DJ Nairobi Dhobi (aka Dan) and DJ Bonyeza Kidude (aka Jim) hit OkayAfrica up with a 41-minute mix that plays in the vein of their group’s cross-pollinating style — an Afro-futurist blend of European house, hip-hop, and funk that’s almost impossible to pin down with genre specifics.
In crafting AIYE #5, the JAB boys mentioned wanting to integrate vinyls they listened to as kids in the 80s, showcase geographical diversity and, quite simply, make people dance. They succeed at all three, seamlessly weaving tracks by Ali Farka Touré, Black Coffee, Baaba Maal, Hugh Masekela, Sam Fan Thomas, Little Dragon, SBTRKT and plenty more.
