Audio: Old Money x Lamin Fofana 'Ethiopia / Nāga'

Brooklyn-based producers Old Money collaboration with Lamin Fofana Ethiopia/Nāga, the first in a series of three joint releases.


Brooklyn-based producers Old Money and Lamin Fofana continue their collaboration with Ethiopia/Nāga, the first in a series of three joint releases. The duo themselves describe the audio experience as "an examination of mysteries as articulated through fresh and distinct African Caribbean lenses" — which is dead on. These journeys, which I refuse to just call tracks, sound like solutions of different colored inks. "Ethiopia" is a nostalgia-inducing fusion of Afro-Caribbean drumming, electronic melody, and a Gregorian-type bass. It flows into "Nāga," which feels like Chicago/London house music meets a Naeto C flow from "10 Over 10." Stream/download Old Money and Lamin Fofana’s work below.
