Below is a commentary by the label.

Kinshasa's DJ Finale, a member of the Fulu Miziki band in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a longtime eco-activist collective making experimental rhythm music out of recycled waste, dives into his country's history to create a brave hybrid dance sound. devising. Based on the popular template of soukous (quassa kwassa), a sound that evolved from the rhythms of Cuban rumba and the flexible emotions of jazz in the mid-20th century,Finale represents Kinshasa, a hotspot of musical fusion and innovation.

Soukous was initially played on traditional instruments, but Finale takes a minimal electronic approach, blending familiar rhythms into Congolese trad-modern styles such as the dombolo. Basss30 carves swinging beats over bursts of white noise and acid synth sounds. Pitschu Debou welcomes Fulu Miziki's Deboul on vocals and inserts Soukes' guitar riffs into a rough neo-trap frame. "Tobandi" is industrial, and like "Islamic Gouz," it's for late night/early club sets, made up of dangerous explosions of growling electronics and jerk-con-goal rhythms.

"Mille Morceau" examines the past and present of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.While celebrating Kinshasa's rich history, we are proud of our energetic and youthful contemporary scene, allowing us to look far beyond our borders.

Nyege Nyege Tapes:

"A member of the Democratic Republic of Congo's Fulu Miziki band, the long-running eco activist collective forging experimental rhythmic music from repurposed trash, Kinshasa's DJ Finale dives into his country's history to brainstorm a dauntless hybrid dance sound. Kinshasa has long been a hotspot of musical fusion and innovation, and Finale builds on the popular template of soukous, or kwassa kwassa - a sound that developed in the mid-20th century from the rhythms of Cuban rumba and flexible emotionality of jazz.

While soukous was initially performed with traditional instruments, Finale takes a minimal electronic approach, melting familiar rhythms into other Congolese trad-moderne styles like n'dombolo. 'Basss 30' bolts a brittle swinging beat over white noise bursts and acidic synth sounds; Pitschu Debou' features Fulu Miziki's Deboul on vocals, and folds soukous guitar riffs into a stark neo-trap frame; 'Tobandi' is raw and industrial, like Muslimgauze but aimed at the late night/early morning club set, with dangerous blasts of whirring electronics and jerky Congolese rhythms.

"Mille Morceau" is a thoughtful mitigation of the Democratic Republic of Congo's past and present. It celebrates Kinshasa's rich history, while remaining proud of an energetic, youthful contemporary scene that's ready to look far beyond the borders."
