Beating Heart presents a fresh collaboration from prolific Hackney-based producer Raz Olsher and Ghanaian master musician Afla Sackey presenting their own take on Afro House. Using organic percussion they build a funky infectious groove, with lush vocal harmony hooks coming in and electronic melodies taking the track on a jacking cosmic journey through the entire African continent and beyond…
Ghanaian vocalist and percussionist Afla has collaborated with many well established musicians including Sun Ra, Ginger Baker, Tony Allen, Seun Kuti, Yabba Funk and Dele Sosimi. While Raz Olsher has worked with an array of artists including Gilles Peterson, Nathaniel Rateliff, Krust, MJ Cole, and Basement Jaxx.
With the single already gaining a coveted Mary Anne Hobbs ‘Near Future Track’ spot on BBC 6 Music, ‘No Touch’ is set to be this year’s addictive and vibrant antidote to the January blues.
