Here’s our Hungarian friends again with another stonkingly good release, this time on the ever dependable Akwaaba music label!
Here’s what they say:
FOKN Bois Meet Irie Maffia Production-The FOKN Dunaquest In Budapest
Here is a teaser:
Description for the release:
Akwaaba, welcome to the future…of Afro-pop…
After running around Accra because of money, the FOKN Bois left for
Budapest hungry on a quest to find the finest duna (arse). They were
kidnapped by the infamous Irie Maffia, a notorious band of musicians,
singers, songwriters, deejays, producers, rappers…and fed only
palinka and bread in a hot studio in the nippy Buda hills close to
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s home.
In 5 days they were forced to do 4 gigs and record 8 tracks…it was
sleepless hell…They managed to escape when the producer; Elo Marton,
who was trying to water board more lyrics out of the exhausted FOKN
Bois at a Turkish bath, absentmindedly gazed at singer/songwriter
Sena’s duna as she sauntered by distractingly.
Now the tracks are out and sound so good that the FOKN Bois have
forgiven Irie Maffia for the conditions by which this beautiful record
came together. In their words; “We see demma Maffia side, but now
everything be Irie.”
The FOKN Dunaquest in Budapest is a sonic Hiphop/Dance/Afropop
adventure from Budapest to Bucharest, Brenham to Boston and Bolgatanga
to Bubuashie! Eastern Europe meets West Africa…apio meets palinka.
