FREAK DE L´AFRIQUE - AKOM
Man 105 | February 23 2018
After the 2017 release of the much played and hyped “Mama Eh” single (featuring remixes by Jowaa and DJ X-Trio), Berlin´s afro house pioneers, Freak De L´Afrique return to Man Recordings with a new club smasher.
“Akom” is a word from Ghana´s Twi language meaning “to enchant”, it was picked by Cambel Nomi, one half of Freak De L´Afrique, whose roots are based in Ghana. With its electro chords and atmospheric build up, it´s not your average afro house tune but represents a great hybrid of tribal sounds with Berlin´s techno feel.
The original track receives a heavy percussive remix treatment of Gafacci of Accra, Ghana, and an afro house remake DJ Satelite from Luanda, Angola.
Bang it out!
