Most of the parts were played by various musicians, some parts were recorded in Ghana, some in Nigeria and some in Philou's hometown Rotterdam and were all brought together and finally arranged by Philou.

This EP is a dedication to the Amsterdam based Alkebulan Project. Philou and Villy are both members of this project, the project brings artists from Africa & African Diaspora together. The Alkebulan Project is on a mission to change the perception of Africa an it's citizens. Nigerian artist Villy and his group "Villy & The Xtreme Volumes" are on a mission to educate Africans with their message calling for a revolution in Africa, politically and socially in all aspects.
Philou has a combination of Congolese, Nigerian and Sierra Leonean heritage and it is in these roots that he has built his sound. His passion for the continent of his ancestors is fervent and his projects are challenging commonly held preconceptions about Africa. His goal is to challenge negative stereotypes, by making African cultures more approachable through music.

Much love for Rudy Asibey for founding The Alkebulan Project and bringing the artists together and many thanks to Marcel Vogel for giving us the opportunity to tell our story through this EP.

I guess the cover is a hommage to this one: William Onyeabor ‎– Anything You Sow
Yes a tribute to all West and Central African music pioneers that ever walked this planet, including William Onyeabor!
One of my favourite releases of the year so far. Repress coming very soon. Dig deep and ye shall find.
