Anushka and XOA

Anushka and XOA

Details

Based in Brighton, producer Max Wheeler and singer/songwriter Victoria Port are Anushka, melding together crisp clubby sounds, with the accent on bass and broken beats gleaned from house and UK funky house, and Port's jazzy vocals. The pair are signed to Gilles Peterson's trusted label Brownswood Recordings and are sure to make good on their promise of embodying "vocal music for sound systems".

Joining them will be London's XOA.

Headed up by multi-instrumentalist (and Gentleman’s Dub Club member) Nick Tyson, XOA fuses golden era 1970s afrobeat with deep grooves and contemporary electronic productions sizzling with analogue synths, guitars and percussive rhythms. Collaboration has always been at the heart of the project, with an emphasis on live instrumentation, crucial to transmitting a rich energy on the tracks. 

Hailing from London, Tyson has been building a keen following with his live gigs and DJ sets, including a sell-out live show at the Jazz Cafe featuring Eva Lazarus and Dele Sosimi on vocals. The new release on Soundway reflects his steady progression towards sophisticated production and collaborative processes, as well as his ability to effortlessly cross multiple genres.
