Subatomic Sound Presents 'NYC-2-Africa'

The 'NYC-2-Africa' EP was recorded in NYC, Kingston and Dakar using a single original rhythm to trace the diaspora through history.

The NYC-2-Africa EP was recorded in New York City, Kingston and Dakar using a single original rhythm to trace the diaspora back through history, from hip-hop’s inception on NYC’s gritty streets, to its Jamaican dancehall reggae roots, to its foundation in African rhythms—represented here by a battery of Senegalese sabar drums. The politics, culture, and environmental awareness fundamental to this musical history are represented vocally by Anthony B (Jamaica), Jahdan Blakkamoore (NYC) and Bajah (Sierra Leone), the three artists featured on the track.  For an exclusive look inside the studio during recording, check out the video above. The song itself can be heard below, and for download links along with more information about the song and Subatomic Sound click here.
