Artwork, custom typography & layout for a Sofrito 12" mini-series, featuring dance music from master percussionists. For these sleeves I took a purely abstract approach to visualising the music, transposing the rhythms into a graphic 'snapshot' that gave a sense of the feel.

BRAZZAVILLE PERCUSSIONS: Jean-Marie Bolangassa (2015)

Founder member of the seminal Afro Disco group M'Bamina, JM Bolangassa comes through with 3 tracks of raw percussion, pairing virtuoso playing with complex drum machine arrangements and sparse synths; sitting somewhere on the fault line between traditional Congolese rhythms and modern electronic music.

KALOUKERA PERCUSSIONS: Erick Cosaque/Voltage 8 (2016)

Percussion and Drum Machine workouts from late 80s and early 90s Guadeloupe. Dancefloor-certified tracks from pivotal Guadeloupean musician Erick Cosaque and his group Voltage 8, blending Gwo Ka and electronics and recorded between 1988 and 1994. Fully remastered, and the first outing on vinyl for Flam'n Cho and Bazouka.
