South London figure Mansur Brown has shared new project ‘NAQI Vol. 1’.
Born in Brixton, this unique artist fuses club styles with his incredible musicality; a superb guitarist, he blends intricate flamenco-leaning finger-work with something truly distinctive.
Out now, his new project ‘NAQI Vol. 1’ is packed with heaters, moving from spider-like webs of guitar to lush soundscapes, all underpinned by a grasp of what works on a system.
So, you’ll move from the rich Timbaland leaning opener ‘No Way’ to the crunch of ‘Fever’ via the embrace of ‘Rise’. Listen closely, and you’ll even locate resonances of afrobeats titans, such as Burna Boy and Wizkid.
A succinct six tracks, but there’s so much music and individuality here to grapple with – tune in now.
