Jimi Tenor & Tony Allen – Selfish Gene

September 24, 2009

Strut’s most recent Information Inspiration project (a collaboration between Mulatu Astatke & The Heliocentrics) seems poised to appear on many distinguishing listeners’ “Best of 2009” lists. For its next spontaneous pairing, Strut again turns to an African music master with roots in both traditional and Western forms, this time Fela Kuti’s longtime drummer, Tony Allen. Complementing Allen’s foundation is Jimi Tenor, Finnish experimental musician extraordinaire who has released an extremely diverse catalog through Warp and other influential labels. Above, hear the first leak from their collaboration, an afro-leaning track with a reggae lilt. Inspiration Information will be out October 27th on Strut.
