Check out the latest release from Banana Clipz a project started by Oro11 and Chief Boima when both artists were living in Oakland. Forged over the course of three years, their EP distills the pair’s shared love of Afro-Latin-Caribbean sounds into a modern club template, one partially inspired by Bersa Discos’ monthly Tormenta Tropical party in San Francisco, where Boima was a frequent guest DJ and even more frequent dancefloor participant.
While Oro11 and Chief Boima might be responsible for the beats on the Banana Clipz EP, the seven-track release features a number of guest vocalists, including white-hot Oakland/Panamanian rappers Los Rakas, Bay Area-based Guyanese dancehall MC Tidal, Sierra Leone-born singer Khady Black, and Black Nature of San Francisco’s Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars.
Released on Ghetto Bassquake and Bersa Discos, the Banana Clipz Ep is available as a free download and if you ask Chief Boima real nice you can get the WAV files as well.
