Audio: Old Money x Lamin Fofana 'Visitors' [Mixtape]

Brooklyn's Old Money collaboration with Lamin Fofana ‘Visitors’ [Mixtape]


Bed-Stuy beatmakers Old Money and Lamin Fofana have three collaborative releases on deck. The works will nod to "black secret technology, ancient civilizations, Haile Selassie, and various strands of diasporic influences, all funneled through... 4th world electronics." and their distinct African/Caribbean lenses. First up is this future-dub mixtape, which the group explains:

This mix is titled Visitors. It was inspired and is the byproduct of the innovators and musicians of 1970s and '80s Jamaican dub and reggae. As electronic artists, we view our work, and this mix as a logical extension of the path traveled by groundbreaking producers, musicians, and engineers such as King Tubby, Scientist, Lee "Scratch" Perry, Jackie Mittoo, Horace Andy, and others. If anything, we are only pushing the ideas to extremes.

Stream/download Old Money and Lamin Fofana's mix below and keep an eye out for the next release "Ethiopia" b/w "Nāga," out Nov 6 on Dutty Artz.
