Prolific Italian DJ and producer José Manuel releases his debut concept album ‘Excursion Africanism’ on the highly respected Copenhagen based Music For Dreams label.José Manuel began his DJ career in clubs in Italy at the age of 16 and has since gone on to produce and release singles on esteemed Belgian label Eskimo Recordings, cool Parisian label Kill The DJ and collaborated with others such as Tusk, Wax, Kinfolk, Cocktail D’Amore, Above Machine, and Is It Balearic? On this new double vinyl LP ‘Excursion Africanism’, José Manuel delivers innovative and deeply percussive tribal grooves washed with voices and sounds of the African continent. The album includes the singles ‘Bilimbosa’ with its relaxed percussive guitar groove and stunning vocal delivery from Babacar Dieng and ‘Babylon’ which also features Dieng’s spiritual voice this time fused with a raw voodoo rhythm. Other highlights are the tribalistic and dreamy ‘Macumba’; the chanting ambience of ‘Voices of Africa’; ‘Rain’ - nomadic village chill out with savannah beats and the funky percussive world groove of ‘Congo’. Afrobeat drumming, electronic textures and cinematic accordion become the template for ‘Magic’ while ‘Excursion Africanism Part 3’ is spaced out futuristic roots music for the global generation. The original of ‘Hungry’ is laden with jungle beats, strong bass and repeated afro choir, plus we have a special bonus version - the sublime afro trance dub by Ibiza legend Leo Mas and partner Fabrice.‘Excursion Africanism’ is a visionary concept album written, produced, and arranged by José Manuel that succeeds in combining a sense of Balearic beats, world music and Afro acid within a template of space disco.
