Renegades Of Jazz – Moyo Wangu
Renegades Of Jazz are back with a super fresh, super funky new album. “Moyo Mangu” (Swahili for ‘my heart’) is heavily influenced by Renegades Of Jazz aka David Hanke’s time spent as a child living in Tanzania. Hanke has taken the African influence to create a modern take on afrobeat, afrofunk.
Personally I think it works perfectly, every track has that real authentic afrobeat sound and feel underpinned with modern, slightly dancey, funk production, as you would expect from ROJ. I would go as far to say this is ROJ’s finest offering to date, I challenge you to play this album and not want to move. Jammed packed with modern afrofunk anthems, everyone should own a copy, it will make your life better and put a smile on your face!
Sadly the vinyl is sold out on the bandcamp page, however you can still get the CD and the download.
