Carsten Pieper Fantastic music from Mali (and somewhat lesser dub versions). To quote producer/label co-manager Chris Eckman (Walkabouts, Dirtmusic...) "his music is a string of firecrackers igniting on the dance floor of a midnight party". Yep!
Furthermore, Glitterbeat is an offspring of Glitterhouse which isn't located really far from me and is my favourite record label. I usually buy there stuff in physical form, but to let the world know how much I like it, I have to acquire this one on Bandcamp :-) Favorite track: Démocratie.

about

Following the slamming success of his first European tour, Malian Afro-rock pioneer Ben Zabo returns with a 31-minute digital-only EP. Diverse and forward-looking the EP includes three new songs, both "Mark Ernestus Meets Ben Zabo" mixes (only available till now on an out-of-print 12") and a dance-floor heavy reworking of “Dana” by Harmonius Thelonius. The horn-driven title track "Democratie" is a breathless and passionate plea for sensible democratic leadership in Ben's troubled homeland Mali.
