Audio: Lamin Fofana 'Africans Are Real'


Right after its drum snare intro, "Africans Are Real" — the title-track off Lamin Fofana's upcoming EP — kicks into a head turning, dripping-synthesizer groove. It's all reminiscent of the hazy car ride home, windows down, after a night at a club. Africans Are Real EP will feature contributions and remixes from Matt Shadetek, DJ/Rupture, Spoek Mathambo and Chief Boima, look for it Oct 2 via Dutty Artz. Stream the tune and see the EP's tracklist below. And while you're at it, check out Lamin's AIYE mixtape he made for us.
