Domineeky - Good Voodoo Afro House Vol 1
Reflecting on some of the album’s key points, Domineeky highlights the tracks ‘Umdudo’ and ‘African Pride’ which both feature Nosisi, an opera singer he discovered on a recent visit to South Africa. The language she sings on track 1 is called Xhosa. ‘Reflections On A Memory (Part Two)’ was created as a follow up to a well received earlier version that was supported by Robert Owens amongst others. ‘Tomorrows World Today’ is a nod towards long-standing influences Atjazz and Osunlade, while ‘SuperFunky’ is described as a personal theme tune, inspired by house producers like Phil Weeks and Giom.
Domineeky’s recent EP ‘Promise Me Love’ and his remixes of Good Voodoo Society have received praise from an illustrious group of DJs including Josh from Blaze, Marques Wyatt, Nick Holder, Vincent Kwok and Joss Moog, helping to establish him as one to keep a keen eye and ear on. His earlier music and productions have been heard on Universal Records, Big Dada/Ninja Tune, Sky TV, BBC Radio and Channel 4.
Launched at the end of 2011, the UK-based Good Voodoo Music record label comes from a diverse collective with an emphasis on proper musicianship. The label has a passion for all things deep and soulful, but draws from influences way beyond the dance music sphere blending different global flavours.
