Through time MoBlack Records has raised the bar, igniting temperatures with fierce releases in the Afro-house field, and with MBR431, it shows no sign of slowing down. South Africans Da Capo keeps the momentum going and in full force, lending his naturally persuasive and gripping touch to the influential label this spring. The young and highly regarded star draws from the very essence of his artistry, passion and mettle, in spooling and spewing two virile, genre- bending and ground-breaking tracks.
On A side Femi, a melodic, electro-riff heavy jolt of motion, with grounding tribal elements at its core but a futuristic ambition. The propulsive finale is mesmerizing, boasting sporadic acoustic apogees and chasms that are sure to set dancefloors on fire. Femi is complemented by Gene. Da Capo beckons on primal instincts with a pulse-clinching intro, three dimensional, and sense gratifying, churning in the right amount of percussion, bass and electromagnetic elements that simmer and emit the aroma of irony in beginnings. For every birth, something has broken, and ‘Gene’, the origin of formation, started with dawn breaking, of roots breaking through ground. There are many layers, earthen and synthetic, stratified and recurling in this 8:36 course, altogether echoing the sound of life as it regenerates life, narrating a dancefloor story that is difficult to hear end. Da Capo really stretches his musical jurisdiction and imposes his technical ingenuity through this EP, marking his and MoBlack territory even further, and deeper in.
