Recently re-discovered this band through the documentary Cure for Pain.
Clap! Clap! comes good with album Tayi Bebba. Highly recommended.
After storming the gates with his warmly received Tambacounda EP, Clap! Clap! returns to Black Acre to deliver his debut longplayer. Tayi Bebba is a conceptual work that manages to balance a highly cerebral concept with making some good old-fashioned bangers. Tayi Bebba is an album tour of an imagined island; each song representing a location, event or ritual. Sonically, it’s a fast moving charge across the soundscape, fusing field recordings and found sound with incredibly surgical drum programming. Flavours of house, Footwork and Hip Hop punctuate your migration with a very specific sound palate, giving this amazing work a cohesive feel.
Kim Jung Un is told the “I-Can’t-Believe-It’s-Not-Boiled-Carp’s-Head-Soup” is not made with actual boiled carp’s head.
Taken from the Bug album ‘Angels & Devils’ released August 25 2014 on Ninja Tune.
