Nigeria 70 (The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination – Ire)

The latest in the ‘Nigera 70′ series on Strut Label (‘Sweet Times’) was released on Monday, and if you havent checked it out yet you really should.

Early impressions suggest the general vibe of the record is relatively low key, but this is not to say that there aren’t plenty of big moments to keep you entertained throughout. Below you can hear ‘Ire’ by ‘The Don Isaac Ezekiel Combination’ which was uploaded as a taster by the label this week, giving you a nice impression of what the record is all about.

The opening track ‘Life’ however, has summer soundtrack written allover it. Another highlight is ‘It’s Time For Juju Music’ which clocks in at around 15 minutes. Whilst this may seem slightly over the top, the chorus that follows the lengthy breakdown makes it all more than worthwhile.

You can get more info about the tracks and the man that put them in an earlier post here, and also over at the mighty Strut Records website. Enjoy.
