Dego & The 2000black Family
Another year, another moniker for Dego and his longterm collaborators Kaidi Tatham and Akwasi Mensah. It can be confusing if you're not a devoted follower and the purpose isn't always clear, I certainly find it difficult to make out a difference. But at the end of the day it's the music I care for and incidentally the 2000black family consists of some of my favourite musicians.
So, there's a new record coming out on Enrico Crivellaro's Neroli imprint, the label that released some of Dego's finest dance music many moons ago. Judging from the snippets, the highlight of the new EP is the opener Find A Way featuring Kaidi and Akwasi on vocals. The other vocal track brings back Bembe Segue, who we haven't heard of in a while.
