Ibukun Sunday – The Last Wave (Phantom Limb, digital)

Ibukun »Sunday« Oladipupo has already been featured on several compilations of the Berlin label Syrphe and now debuts on the British imprint Phantom Limb with five pieces that approach ambient music not as a beautifully shimmering sound wallpaper, but as an aesthetic challenge. »The Last Wave« deals thematically with the beginning and end of the earth and draws on events in Oladipupo's native Nigeria, whose capital Lagos is discreetly embedded in opulent electronic soundscapes in the form of field recordings.
