Shaman Work
Download “Keep Shining” (MP3, 192kbps)
“Wale Oyejide has returned with a new project that further binds the traditional sounds of Nigerian Afro-beat with the future vibes of the London Broken-beat scene, while managing to maintain the neck-snapping sensibilities of Hip-Hop. Try and imagine what it would sound like if Fela Kuti held a session with Bugz in the Attic in Brooklyn, New York, and you might have a vague idea.”—Shaman Work

Playing off the original roots of Blaxploitation, spawned by a burgeoning demand for music and entertainment outside of the mainstream, Scienz of Life’s, Lil’ Sci and I.D. 4 Windz tap into their bi-costal experience and present a level of musical finesse that’s right-on time. Lil’ Sci and I.D.
