Hello Skinny – Oduor Nyagweno & Owiny Sigoma Uptown

This track appeared in the build up to the recent Sofrito warehouse party which hosted a live show by Owiny Sigoma Band. As with many of my more recent posts, they would have been up sooner had I not experienced my involuntary technological hiatus. However Owiny Sigoma have been an integral part of this site since day one (for the band and the blog) so I thought it was only right that it was put up. As they say, better late than never.

This track differs from any other release by the band in two ways. Firstly it is a more jumped up, techno-based number with very sparse references to the origins of the sound. Secondly it is not even clear (to myself at least) who is responsible for the creation of the track itself. One thing is for sure though, its a nice variation on what they have done in the past, whilst still being up to the usual standard. You can hear the track below, and it is also available as a free download courtesy of Brownswood.
