Villaelvin is the collaboration between Welsh producer and sound artist Elvin Brandhi and several artists from the Nyege Nyege collective: Kampala percussionist Omutaba, rappers Hakim and Swordman Kitala and producers Don Zilla and Oise. Head Roof is the first collaborative album which will be out on January 31st. “Ghott Zillah” is a new excerpt. Listen below.
Auto-tune blast beats from field recordings of Evangelist churches, the swamps surrounding the studios, with warped drums by Kampala based percussionist Omutaba, improvised stream of consciousness lyrics from local rappers Hakim and Swordman Kitala, with glitched out bassy productions with Boutiq Studio manager Don Zilla and Congolese producer Oise. This new project called Viillaelvin is the first full LP to be released on Hakuna Kulala.
