Audio: TOYC & Zulu 'Kalimba'


Teen producer Zulu — whose diaspora-meets-2-step mixtape we previously featured — and fellow Briton TOYC are following up their solid joint EP with a full-length of tropical bass tunes for Zoo Music. In "Kalimba," the first single off that upcoming LP, the duo flip a (typically bright) mbira melody into an underworld electro brew. Stream and download it below.
