Back in 2007, Still Music broke new ground by releasing “Think Africa”, the first 12” from Fela’s son Seun Kuti with Egypt 80, Fela’s legend- ary band . This year, we’re back in Africa via Lubeck, Germany and we are proud to present Mr Raoul K’s first full length for Still Music titled “Mande”.
Mr Raoul K is well known for his productions that mix original African instruments with techno and deep house “Made in Germany”. His re- leases, on his own imprint Baobab Music and for Mule Musiq, have spread his unique sound worldwide with great acclaim from Joe Claussel, the Innervision crew and many other DJs.
Mr Raoul K also was featured and interviewed by Gilles Peterson on the famous Worldwide show (http://www.gillespetersonworldwide. com/2011/09/gilles-peterson-worldwide-vol-4-no-12-raoul-k/).
For “Mande”, Still Music sent Mr Raoul K back to his roots in Abidjan - Ivory Coast, where Raoul K reunited with his band and started working on this fantastic album.
We took this opportunity to document his journey in Africa with a video documentary that demonstrates the extent of Mr Raoul K musician’s sheer talent and can teach you a thing or two about African music (only available on the DCD release).
