Shuanise - Masudasante Naima (mp3 download)

If you're a Mixed Nutz listener then you've been sweating it out waiting for something official from this lady for a long time - she is truly magnificent. Alexander Nut sent this out to the great and good (and me) this week:

Shuanise Odunaiya is the latest artist to join the ranks of Eglo Records (Floating Points, Alexander Nut). Dallas born but raised in North London, the lady is something of an enigma. She was introduced to playing percussion at an early age. Around the same time she started to use her voice as a way of expression. From freestyling with the local hoodrats to weekly jams on the grand piano with the old guy up the road, Shuanise started to make sense of it all. "I liked the way it built itself up, my music is a fusion of everything I love: synth sounds, heavy bass, high frequencies, African choirs, crackling vinyl & talking drums".
