Clap! Clap! is the newest addition to our eclectic collective and also the most exotic artist to have ever released with us. White on the surface but black in spirit, Clap! Clap! sets free some raw, hypnotizing, modern-day tribal dances on Gwidingwi Dema by touching up on various African traditional rhythms that he infuses with deep basslines, wild drums and entrancing footwork.
Gwidingwi Dema (black jungle in Zimbabwean Shona) is all about its striking musical associations, such as transforming the soundscape of a village in the jungle on a rainy afternoon into something very club-friendly.
He creates his implosive rhythms by pacing vigorous bass with melodic vocal incantations and elaborate percussion. It all feels like hearing rare footage of a tribe singing and dancing in mesmerizing cycles in a classical club environment. Anyone will be able to feel Clap! Clap!'s producer prowess and seasoned artistry on this one.
