After beginning extraordinarily this 2018 -with the successful presentation of ‘Musique EP’- Fakeba release her awaited and new studio album “Made in Africa” that is on sale from this month of April.
The young Senegalese artist Fakeba considered as the electronic queen of Africa- returns to work with producer Big Toxic in this “Made in Africa” which contains nine tracks, among which we find three cuts “Fakeba”, “Senegal” and “Musique” – already known and included – with their corresponding versions remixed by Mesopotamia, Angel Altieri, J Rob & D. Passenger and Mist3rfly – in the previous EP presented in January. “Fabe”, “OuttiJamm”, “YaYe”, “Adouna”, “Am Am” and “Balna Lene” complete the track-list of an album, in which Fakeba sings in Wolof – her native language in Senegal – so that we can enjoy, above all, electro-pop, dubstep, pshyco-trance, progressive and techno-pop in an attractive and fascinating amalgam of electronic and organic sounds, synergy between different cultures rapidly alive, that invite to dance, to freedom and to spirituality.
“MADE IN AFRICA”, SUBJECT TO TOPIC
Powered by Exploreads“Fakeba” is electro-tech-pop with dark-new-wave touches and industrial flare-ups in the Depeche Mode, in which the African artist is more intense, serious and forceful. The subject is like herself and her voice -such and sumptuous- in this theme: strong, brave and sure of a talent that makes her the artist -with a greater and more brilliant projection- of the best contemporary electronics of the fascinating black continent.
Fakeba, in “Senegal”, gets carried away by friendly and synthesized sounds to give rise to an endearing and nostalgic pop song – it is a hymn, almost a prayer – in which, the different textures of the Senegalese’s excited voice shines with her own light on an electronic basis, from a soft epic, feels like a second skin.
