It's not every day you hear field recordings taken from the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, but then KUTIMAN is not your everyday artist. Production wizard and multi-instrumentalist, known to some as Ophir Kutiel, he spent time in a rural community overlooked by the African peak, which is when he got everything here down - percussive performances, dancing, and general life in the village. 'Wachaga', name taken from its birthplace, is the result of those efforts, and is quite possibly the most inspiring, evocative and escapist record you'll come across for some time. Don't expect any 'world music' cliches here, its genuine innovation at work with sounds from the most dominant to the most beguiling coming together to create a coherent whole. And one packed with variety. Unarguably rooted in tribal rhythms, it's nevertheless informed by 1960s spy scores, psychedelic otherness, jazz, avant-garde and downtempo electronica. We can't get enough, you're likely to feel similar.
