Chief Boima's Techno Rumba

Not content with posting continuous awesomeness here on Ghetto Bassquake, a massive release from our very own Chief Boima, dropping his all new EP on Dutty Artz. The Techno Rumba single is the next slamming leg in his inspired blend of rolling African riddims with electronic club sounds. Big remixes come from Dutty Artz Tropical hype miesters DJ/Rupture, Uproot Andy & Matt Shadetek.

And to go with the single, a very special Afro Latino-Rumba mix by Boima playing some of the jams he plays at his Little Boabab club in SF.

Boima says "What's important about Boabab is that it is an African club in the heart of the city's main nightlife districts where Africans can go to a place that feels like home in America but it's not marginalized as an ethnic club on the outskirts of the city. The music reflects this. Drawing influences from the Mission (historically latin) neighborhood, but also from all of our upbringings as first and second generation Africans, and an identity as black people in America. It is a place where I've been able to bridge the disparate worlds' that I grew up in and create something that represents myself and my diverse experiences through music."

Good question. Boima ?

Boima said...

On the front of the EP? That's me when I cut my hair ;P

No it's just an imaginary guitar friend, imagined by the cover artist Robert Trujillo.

The dude on the cover of the promo mix is the one and only Franco.
