London-based producer Larry Achiampong More Mogya, dedicated to BABMAF, samples vintage Ghanaian records.
<p>In 2011's excellent <a href="http://lookmamarecords.bandcamp.com/album/meh-mogya-sample-of-me" target="_blank"><em>Meh Mogya</em></a> (<em>My Blood</em>), London-based producer <strong>Larry Achiampong </strong>sampled vintage Ghanaian records that his parents would play during his youth, focusing on the golden era of highlife. Stems from the tracks were usually flipped, looped and masterfully thrown on top of hip-hop beats to create alluring, cross-genre experimental compositions. <em>More Mogya</em> follows in that vein and is dedicated to the <strong><a href="http://www.bapmaf.com/" target="_blank">Bokoor African Popular Music Archives Foundation</a> </strong>(BABMAF), the extensive music archive from which all the samples for the project were found. Stream the album and grab it as a name-your-price from <strong>Look Mama! Records</strong>.</p><p><iframe allowtransparency="true" frameborder="0" height="410" src="http://bandcamp.com/EmbeddedPlayer/v=2/album=3156491601/size=grande3/bgcol=FFFFFF/linkcol=4285BB/" style="position: relative; display: block; width: 300px; height: 410px;" width="300"><a href="http://lookmamarecords.bandcamp.com/album/more-mogya">MORE MOGYA by Larry Achiampong</a></iframe></p><p><div class="preroll-video"></div><ora-player></ora-player></p>
