Max Le Daron – Unless Tomorrow

From festivals to sweaty studios, unnecessarily long bus rides and rounds of ice cold African lagers, Max Le Daron’s numerous trips to East and West Africa have fueled the creation of a body of work which, much like a proper Nollywood film, could only fit into 3 distinctly dense and enticing volumes.

Good stews require carefully layered flavors, a lot of care – and a lot of time. Unless Tomorrow is the living proof that the same applies to music. Years in the making, recorded between Accra, Ouagadougou, Luanda, Kampala, and of course his home turf Brussels, Unless Tomorrow subtly intertwines carefully selected, slowly incorporated ingredients from worlds apart.

The songs have been conceived, dismissed, rebuilt, remixed, put aside, and almost disappeared forever in Akwaaba’s flooded studio in Accra. As if Mami Wata’s might could not accept this creative defeat, the almighty hard drive came back to life, the songs were born again, minds were blown again, and the EPs are here today, ready to bring together the most kinetically challenged dancers with masters of the art of wining the waist.
