Afrorack – The Afrorack (Hakuna Kulala, MC/digital)

Brian Bamanya claims to be working with the first self-built modular synthesizer on the African continent. Whether this is true or not is another question, what is certain though is that the Ugandan artist, who goes by the name Afrorack, elicits beguiling rhythms and all kinds of unusual sounds from his device. »The Afrorack« is more than a mere presentation of the possibilities of his system, but also characterised by a formal rigour that still leaves room for improvisational and very lively moments. At least in this respect, this album is unique.
