Audio: Just A Band's Soupy Mixtape


Kenya's electro-art-indie-afro band, Just A Band, recently bandcamped their latest mixtape, Kudish! (The Sound of Soup).

JAB's Blinky writes in:

From the first time we ever went on stage (in August 2008 – nerve-wracking!) for live performances and/or DJ-sets, we’ve always prepared some remixes of our own songs (and other Kenyan songs we like) to play before we start or after we finish. We’ve never released any of those remixes until today!

We’ve been asked many times to put those mashups and remixes together, so after Daniel unleashed a particularly fun set at the Kudishnyao street party, we figured we should put them together. Here’s “Kudish! The Sound of Soup”, available as a free download courtesy of Bandcamp (which is the coolest music platform we’ve ever worked with). It’s a collection of music we wish we could hear on radio. Grab it and play it loud, and most of all – tell us what you think! :)

You can find out more about JAB's goings-on here;  word on the street is that they may be Stateside this summer.
