2. Knocke now
4. Baila Con Paula ft. Jungle By Night
Awanto 3 strikes again with part two of his debut album! Includes the cut “Baila Con Paula”, which is a collaboration with the Dutch nine-piece Afrobeat ensemble Jungle By Night. TIP!
Opel Mantra Part 2 offers another stunning quartet of tracks that effortlessly join the dots between deep house, jazz, dub and Latin beats, with some sneaky nods to the futurism of Detroit techno thrown in.
Don’t miss the third and final part of the vinyl release, heading your way in March. Until then, marvel at this second essential taster – it’s every bit as vivid and enthralling as the title suggests.
