Oscar Mbo – Life & Love
A short but concise offering from Oscar as he is here to display what he has to offer us and the sounds that he means to transpire. These three records are nostalgic, you can almost smell the red Cobra polish on your grandmother’s stoep when listening to these tunes. He only has one feature on the EP which comes from Yuri September.
Life & Love
The title track of the EP, Life & Love features Sunday chillas vibes that can not be denied nor overlooked. The title is just a show off the abilities that Oscar possesses as a producer. The track features a deep sultry base accompanied by luxurious synths and melodies that are complemented by the percussions that guide the rhythm of the tune. If the is track was a delicacy, it would be ice-cream.
Zar (feat. Yuri September)
If you have listened to a lars Behrenroth Deeper shades of house mix than you will recognise this sound of the bat. It is both local and has a cross-continental appeal all at once.
For the Brave
Broken beat is what you get from this track. Like the rest of the tracks, this track is nostalgic. A sense of familiarity that radiates from the track is so distinct but yet it eludes explanation.
