We get a touch of afro house infused electronics with the breathtaking album track ‘malo okoma (feat. Theresa Ng’ambi)’. Hip-hop and grime emerge and collide on song ‘easy (feat. Flowdan)’. The music producer also veers toward other borders with French songstress Clio on the dream-pop track ‘la nuit n’en finit plus’. With so many avenues explored in one dynamic work, we are in awe of the producer’s ability to maintain a cohesive structure throughout. Although this album features multilingual tracks, the mood and atmosphere ties well and is a beautifully collaborative work that explores the human condition.
Speaking about the album dj poolboi adds: “I wanted this album to be my most ambitious and diverse work to date and it was. It has been over two years of hard work in collaboration with artists in more than 10 different countries. Genre-wise this has been a big step forward from the more niche lo-fi house and ambient music that I’ve made previously. One of my goals is to score films but with this album, there are at least 14 different music videos done now or in the works for a 12 song LP with remixes. We’ve shot in South Korea, Zambia, Canada, the UK, Germany and France all safe during the pandemic working with different film making teams for each. ”
