This time last month I was praising Ibibio Sound Machine's "The Pot is on Fire" heralding the release of their 2nd LP "Uyai". Now the Nigerian-British collective is electrifying world music fans with "Give Me a Reason", not only their finest single to date but also one of the greatest dance singles of the past couple of years! This unstoppable amalgamation of throbbing afro-beats, West-African funk, 80's synths, and electro is sure to keep you dancefloor-happy. What a truly vibrant sonic explosion! Dare not to dance!
"Uyai" is out March 3, 2017 on Merge Records.
