Audio: Ntale's Groove Remix EP


On the heels of Ntale's Groove comes Ntale's Groove Remix EP, an ultra funky 4 track afro-futurist initiative from Jason "ClassicBeatz" Minnis.  Ntale's Groove is an instrumental project attempting to trace Jason’s African roots through music and was released between Jan 7th through March 18th one song at a time on the Laid Back radio website. Remixer Barbera delivers a solid afrobeat anthem with victory horns, and soul claps on "Kampala Hustle" while Mister Critical paints a dreamy chill-out version of  "Djimbe Story." Listen below, then get the goods here!
