Things With Wings - Naija Beats EP
Things With Wings is back with a two-track EP of afro-inspired goodness, to be released on 16th September on Skrufix. Heavily influenced by the production styles of modern Nigerian dance music, the hypermodern tracks are the first in a spate of new releases coming out on the innovative Berlin label in the second half of 2016.
“I’ve been playing a lot of Nigerian dance tracks recently, and it tends to be very vocal-heavy and not great to mix, so I’ve been making my own instrumental beats to mix with it,” says Things With Wings. “Shanghai [Burton] heard some of the tracks and thought we should put them out. Then [up-and-coming Berlin artist and friend of the label] Drømsjel heard the tracks and said he wanted to do the artwork for the cover - that’s when I realised this had to happen.”
