Playing tracks by
Zani Diabete, Nyboma, Susan Mapfumo, Chief Dr Sikuru Ayinde Barrister, King Sunny Ade and more.
For his FACT mix, our man – real name Ralph Cumbers – has avoided the kind of British and Jamaican bass sounds that he’s invariably associated with, and chosen instead to showcase some of the African music which has been his private passion for years now. The results are incredible. All the tracks have been ripped from vinyl and specially edited, and it’s not hard to see how they’ve impacted on Cumbers’ productions in terms of mood, rhythm and character.
