Olugbenga 'Silver Pixie' EP + MNRS Remix

Listen to Olugbenga 'Silver Pixie' EP, five tracks of future level production + the Metronomy bassist/producer's remix of MNRS' "Arms."


Back in August Olugbenga's warm & synthesized first bite off the Silver Pixie earned a spot as a mainstay of our soundsystem. Since then we've eagerly awaited what the UK-based/Nigerian-born producer has in store for the rest of his five track EP. Silver Pixie is a future level of production motivated by past thoughts. Opener "Life: The Movie" foretells a tale of contemplative workings to come from the rest of the release, which runs as a look at life through pensive synth. Silver Pixie is out now via Olugbenga's own imprint Replica Trophy. Listen to the full EP here and stream the just released rework of MNRS' "Arms" below. For more from Olugbenga grab a free download of AFRICA IN YOUR EARBUDS #15 featuring a 1AM assortment of Nigerian influences and modern grime.

Interview

This Compilation Shines a Light On East African Underground Music

We talk to a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation from Uganda's Nyege Nyege.

Nyege Nyege, a label in Kampala, Uganda is channelling the confidence brimming over a whole continent. Africa is no longer the future. For dance music, its time is right now.

Music For the Eagles is a compilation released in conjunction with Soundcloud to showcase the best new acts that East Africa has to offer outside the mainstream. A new wave of artists firmly blasting non-conformist energy for you to spasm to. Music that takes you places. Otim Alpha's high BPM wedding frenzy of incessant rasping vocals accompanied by feverous violin will have you clawing the walls to oblivion. Anti Vairas' dancehall from a battleship with super galactic intentions doesn't even break a sweat as it ruins you. FLO's beautiful sirens call, is a skittish and detuned nursery rhyme that hints at a yearning for love but reveals something far more unnerving. Ecko Bazz's tough spiralling vocal over sub-bass and devil trap energy is an anthem that can only be bewailed. And Kidane Fighter's tune is more trance-like prayer. These are only some of the highlights for you to shake it out to.

We got to chat with a few of the artists featured on the Music For the Eagles compilation as they took a break from the studio below.
