Video: Mo Laudi's “The Slaves Meditation” Is Nu World Electro (Free DL)

[embed width="560"][/embed]


Mo Laudi is a progressive DJ/MC  hailing from South Africa, residing in the UK, who we first got hipped to through his work with The Very Best. His eclectic and engaging musical style has landed him gigs along side the likes of Roy Ayers, Diplo, Kid Cudi, and Fatboy Slim just to name a few. His new track “The Slaves Meditation” combines a driving bass line of African and Latin rhythms with a chorus influenced by ancient Haitian Voodoo ceremonies. Laudi refers to the track as "Nu World Electro" - appropriate given the mash up of old world X electro future + multiple cultural references.  Just what we love. Check out the video for the single, above, which features concert footage from the Sakifo Festival, set on the beach on a small tropical island in the Indian Ocean (note to self: GO THERE).  The video itself is a throw-back, using a psychedelic hipstamatic grainy-saturated effect that puts us back in the groovy 70's, where we like to stay. Vid shot and directed by Mo Laudi and Hannah Newbery.  For more great music, check out Mo Laudi on bandcampDOWNLOAD "The Slaves Meditation" too, for free!
