ESA自身が立ち上げたAWEH MUSICのレーベル・プロモ的な限定リリース。近年1990年の「Garden of Life」が再発され話題を呼んだUK STREET SOULのレジェンダリーなグループSPECIAL TOUCHのシンガーROBERT ROPERをフィーチャリングした「I See You」。B=SIDEは、ケープタウンに住む彼の妹とナイジェリア出身のFranck Biyongをフィーチャイングしたフェラ・クティ、トリビュート。
To kick off his new label and musical output - Aweh Music, Esa shares with us two exclusive tracks from his most recent soundtrack LP for The Invisible Hand podcast. This limited 7" features a modern street soul track and a collaboration with the legacy duo from the early 1990s, Doval and Robert Roper of Special Touch, which you might be familiar with from their cult classic the Garden of Life LP. On the flip side, Esa collaborates with his sister Tasneem based in Cape Town, for the very first time. They present a musical journey that takes influence from Soul with Balearic tones and Afro-Beat, all brought together nicely by the talented Franck Biyong on organ, guitar, and paying homage to Fela with his introductory vocals & lyrics. Esa recorded these tracks during the pandemic, with many of the studio sessions done remotely. It also features some rising talents based in London - Ayo Salawu on Drums, Raquel Martins on Guitar, Amane Suganami on Synths and Manu Idra on percussion. All tracks were written, produced and arranged by Esa.
