Antibalas Antibalas: Deluxe on LP + MP3 Download Coupon
Born in a Brooklyn warehouse in 1997, 12-piece ensemble Antibalas is credited with introducing Afrobeat to a wider global audience, influencing countless musicians and developing a live show that is the stuff of legend. On the heels of the hit musical FELA!, which several members collaborated on, Antibalas has reunited with former member and producer Gabriel Roth at House of Soul studio, who was at the helm for their first three albums. This self-titled album is their first release in five years, and the first on Daptone Records!
Inspired by economic meltdowns and global uprisings, Antibalas piled into two rooms at Daptone's House of Soul Studios in Bushwick, Brooklyn to cut an explosive new set of afrobeat classics. "Dirty Money" launches the propulsive six-song LP with deep, pulsating rhythms, monstrous horns and tight funk. Lead singer Amayo, a native of Lagos, Nigeria and senior Kung Fu master, guides the band through cathartic workouts of call and response, dynamic instrumentals and eruptive solos.
Deluxe LP with silver foil board and embossed frame cover. Also comes with custom printed inner sleeve with song lyrics and MP3 download coupon.
