CONGALOID002 : Seka – Heritage EP

For the second installment of Solo‘s freshly established Congaloid imprint slated for release on December 19th, the labelhead commissioned the young, groovy producer known as Seka, and surprise, surprise, he’s from Bristol. Bristol seems to be recreating itself as a hub for some of the best dance music today. With producers like Julio Bashmore, Eats Everything, and Seka synthesizing this fresh sound and rapidly releasing original tracks, it’s no wonder why Pete Tong gave the city a huge shout out on the Essential Mix a few weeks back. Here’s what Solo had to say about signing the youngblood:

“When I have received Andy’s EP I was quite surprised. At the time I was spending some weeks in Bali, and just starting to organise things, hoping to find the right people to work together with. I wrote on Facebook about my future label plans, and wasn’t really expecting demos just yet. Only few minutes later Seka sent me an email and asked to check these 2 songs. I felt straight away that those grooves had something right, so I tried them both that night, and even tho they were still rough demos, they worked a treat. People were smiling during those 2 mini-catchy-swing numbers, so I was sold. Seka became part of the adventure, and while I hope that you are gonna play this record, I am excited to have him in the Congaloid team, cause his new demos are sounding really good too…”
