NEW RELEASE. Ian Simmonds f. the Ekonda Women, King

Release date: Ebi Soda remix OUT TODAY

This collaboration between Ian Simmonds and the Ekonda Women came about in the late 1990s when releasing music as Juryman for Crammed Discs. Ian met Vincent Kenis, who had just returned from the Kongo with hours of field recordings including several hours of the Ekonda women, taken in the Bikoro district of Kinshasa. Ian asked if he could hear what he had recorded and instantly fell in love with what he heard. ‘King’ is a big collaborative project full of power and passion, lovingly finished off with the stunning cover painting by Welsh artist Tony Griffin.  

An epic journey featuring stunning vocal samples from the Ekonda Women, harmonising with romantic guitar melodies,‘King’ becomes the ultimate afro-futurism workout when layered on top of Simmonds’ galloping drums and bass. The forthcoming EP includes an extended version of ‘King’, alongside three reworks from DJ Rocca, Number and a lead remix from Ebi Soda, and extra track ‘Women’.
