Gotta say that I love this band as much as I did when I first heard them a couple of years ago, maybe more.
Their thunderous new mixtape has so many brainblowing jams and guests on it that I feel phsically sick. Is that weird?
Faultless production, bone rattling percussion and some awesome guest vocals from Afrikan Boy to Aloe Blacc.
More importantly this mixtape reminds that an estimated 3.7 million people have died in Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, and Sierra Leone in conflicts fuelled by diamonds. Thats 3.7 million.
