Laolu & Mr. Raoul K

Djougou Yah EP (feat. Ahmed Sosso)


Expected: 6th April 2018 | 2 track house single

Laolu & Raoul K's excellent debut EP for Compost Records is the perfect amalgamation of state of the art housemusic, african rhythm- and soundtextures being topped by the deep and spiritual vocals of Ahmed Sosso.

It's not the first fruitful collaboration of Geneva based Laolu and Raoul K who's living in Lübeck – a contemplative small town in the north of Germany. With their collective effort on Sene Kela, released on Raoul's label Baobab in 2014, the duo easily brigded the gap between their african roots and modern house, between deepness and rave appeal. A truly adorable piece of dance music that deeply touched and left a lasting impression on Compost Records head honcho Michael Reinboth, who licensed the song for his long standing Future Sounds of Jazz compilation series immediately. With Djougou Yah, Laolu and Raoul K are picking up this vibe again but turning the wheel even further – delivering two marvelous versions of the song. Besides the musical and magnificently orchestrated and arranged Original there's the Perc Mix. With its punchy Kick drum, stripped back percussion work, striking synth arpeggios and an epic breakdown it's got this perfect peaktime and festival appeal to it. The lyrics and vocals are written and performed by the african singer and musician Ahmed Sosso whose unique voice already pleased our ears on Manoo & Raoul K's Innervisions Toukan EP from last year. Music with a message – music that went straight into our hearts!
