Vienna´s KU BO returns with a big boom. After four acclaimed EPs, KU BO tracks have been licensed to Crookers “I Love Techno” compilation, Buraka Som Sistema´s “Fabric Live” mix, and played out by everyone from Brodinksi to Diplo.

Now KU BO returns with his “Kawaida” EP. The EP presents five new tracks from the low end territories, put into groove location on the African continent.

With singers Topoke from the Congo, Joyce Muniz from Brasil, Daniecell from Mexico and Anbuley from Ghana, he jam-packs a trans-global crew of vocalists with a kaleidoscope of nu-millennium Afro-metropolitan groove science; all mixed up with the philosophy of Kawaida – an ongoing synthesis of African thought and practice in constant exchange with the world.

This collection of tropical bangers is a perfect example of the synergy between African influences and domestic club music.
