Explosive style

    The late Nigerian musician William Onyeabor may have shied away from the limelight but his star is still burning bright and inspiring a whole new generation. Luaka Bop released What?! in 2014 with a cool compilation of covers (we’re particularly partial to the Hot Chip rendition) and under the same label Atomic Bomb! is blowing us away with their 2017 tribute album. This supergroup has a mission to keep the funk legend’s legacy alive and led by Sudanese-American Sinkane delivers an impressive line-up including David Byrne, Money Mark and Dev Hynes to name a few.
