If Just a Band was based in New York City, they may have already taken the world by storm. No matter. I'm still confident they'll break into the scene with a random splash, and everyone in the West will just have been late to their party. They're music is fucking electrifying.
Just a Band is a Nairobi-based self-proclaimed super-nerdy music collective that makes Afro-pop electro music. Sorry for the Delay is their third studio album, "a collection of songs about life and death, light and darkness, fun, laughter and friendship (good and bad)." It's a mix of jazz, house and experimental, with their one-and-only funky touch. I'm super impressed. Their ability to interweave multiple sounds comes off as incredibly unique -- this is African-inspired DJ music you definitely haven't heard of yet.
