EA Wave (short for East African Wave) consists of Nairobi-based DJs/producers Ukweli, Sichangi, HIRIBAE, Nu Fvnk, and Jinku. They're getting noticed by all the right people in the West -- Boiler Room, Red Bull Music Academy, 1Xtra, and Worldwide FM -- as well as securing stacks of African coverage. This debut outing on vinyl presents new sounds from their native Kenya. Byrd Out listened to the tracks a lot, and concluded that "contemplative house" is a good descriptor. Expect beautifully crafted beats, hazy synths, and inch-perfect bass, constructed for the dancefloor when bodies need to get a bit closer. Things are only going to get bigger for EA Wave, so get on it now. Stand out track: Nu Fvnk's "Happening In The Grey Area".
