London based collective Onipa are releasing a mixtape called Tapes Of Utopia which will arrive on September 17th via Boomerang Records.
About the mixtape, Onipa explains, “Tapes of Utopia harks back to a time of African cassette tapes sold on street markets, a reimagination of mixtape culture, blending genres from analogue tones of Afrobeat, Highlife and Soukous to Afrofuturistic rap and electronics. Tapes of Utopia symbolises a time when technology was decentralised, a vision of utopia where humans are liberated by safe technology that benefits the people not the elite.”
Listen to the infectious Afrobeat of the first single, ‘Chicken No Dey Fly’, which features Sheffield hip hop artist Franz Von. Pre-order here.
