Brooklyn-based producers Old Money collaboration with Lamin Fofana Ethiopia/Nāga, the first in a series of three joint releases.
<p>Brooklyn-based producers <strong>Old Money</strong> and <strong>Lamin Fofana</strong> continue their <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/2012/11/01/old-money-lamin-fofana-visitors-mixtape/" target="_blank">collaboration</a> with <em>Ethiopia/Nāga</em>, 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 <strong>Naeto C</strong> flow from "10 Over 10."
