Soundway - SNDW12035

This summer, Soundway Records will release a double vinyl compilation from South African-raised, UK-based DJ and producer, Esa Williams. Titled Esa Presents Amandla: Music To The People, the compilation spans electronic music from around the globe, which feature heavily in Esa's DJ sets and hold a special place in his record bag - including exclusive versions and hard-to-find tracks from the last two decades. Esa Presents Amandla will be preceded by a promotional teaser 12" out 31 May, featuring Penny Penny's 2001 impossibly rare Kwaito House monster "Shilungu". A hypnotic, percussive, groove-driven anthem, it features chanting in Tsonga, celebrating South African icon Penny Penny's Shangaani roots. On the flip is the acid-soaked "Shilungu (Esa & Mervin Granger '99 Mix)", re-interpreting the track with key elements from the original which are extended into a late night, Chicago House influenced chugger. Esa Williams is an ambassador for the South African music scene within the crowded landscape of the European nightlife - balancing a hectic DJ schedule, a monthly radio show on Worldwide FM and various live projects. He is currently in the midst of a long-term DJ residency at Phonox London, where he embarks on a weekly musical expedition.
