Analog Players Society


Studio Brooklyn

Released: 15th April 2013 | 4 track afrobeat ep

Fresh on the heels of their critically acclaimed Hurricane Season In Brooklyn album, drummer and studio don Amon returns to his Analog Players Society project with a 3 track excavation entitled CKY – JFK Vol. 1. Setting out to explore his original West African influences, this project is once again a collective effort spearheaded and curated by Amon in his home turf of The Hook Studio and features a revolving cast of singers and musicians close to the cause, this time from hailing from the country of Guinea.

Things kick off with Coule'ba , a foot-stomping track with an infectious guitar lick, a pulsing synth bassline, percussion blasts and the soaring, powerful vocals of Missia Saran Diabate, a well known Guinean vocalist who has made an indelible mark on New York City's West African Jazz scene.

Next up is the live vibe of Korosi with it's killer drum break, inspired horns, Highlife guitar, deep percussion and call-and-response vocals from Petite Conde and Missia Saran Diabate on backup.

Rounding off the EP is Moula, a driving, spiritual joint with mystical balaphone melodies, sky-high vocals and four to the floor drums. It's a beautiful, hypnotic track that would not sound out of place in a late night Berlin club or a sunrise DJ set at Burning Man.

This is the brilliance of the Analog Players Society – a seamless melding of traditional vibes and instrumentation and razor sharp studio wizardry coupled with modern Dance production in a way only they can do. Watch out for the single from the next album dropping in May – there's much more where this came from!
