Their 1st U.S performance!
Just A Band with Analogue Transit
Just A Band, the trio of Billy “Blink” Selanga, Dan Muli, and Jim Chuchu, are redefining the sound of Kenyan music in the 21st century, with their exciting mix of disco/electro/African funk. They’ve been exciting crowds all over Nairobi, and it’s finally the chance for New Yorkers to experience the band that’s responsible for what Fast Company called “Kenya’s first viral music video” for the song Ha-He.
Music blog The Couch Sessions frames up the killer track “Huff + Puff” like this:
It’s African music, but not that traditional tribal sound that you think about when you usually think of African music. This song could bump in pretty much any international lounge scene and wouldn’t be out of place. The synth work is impressive, and when they declare that they’re gonna “huff and puff and blow the house down,” you can hear an uncanny undertone of malice, joy, and swag in equal amounts.
Check them out in their first stateside performance on August 25!
“. . .something that’s not only danceable but truly new.” – Flavorpill
The name speaks for itself: Analogue Transit represents the transition of sound from analog to digital. The members of the group, Kwaku Aning (mild-mannered music teacher by day) and Jeff Shreiner (the production wunderkind), have taken the basis for their sound and christened themselves with it. The Brooklyn-based duo, however, is more than just a catchy name. Artistically methodical in their approach,
the two musicians incorporate both analog and digital techniques to make music that is progressive and forward-thinking without losing the lovingly hand-crafted touch of analog production.
To be clear, though, this is not the tired battle of old school vs. new school. Rather, Analogue Transit place themselves in an alternate universe where the old and new co-exist, engaging in a seamless dialog uninterrupted by disputes between generations and things lost in transition.
