Pre-Order: Dem Say Ah (Akoya Re-Rub)

Back for the first time in 5 years and with a live remix to boot, the Afrobeat infused scorcher, Dem Say Ah returns, the 7-inch way!

Since it’s original version first dropped, the record has been a secret weapon to DJs like Bobbito Garcia, Nightmares on Wax, Mitsu the Beats and Gilles Peterson, among others!

Fast forward to 2019 and DJ Center returns with Akoya Afrobeat, recording the ‘Re-Rub’ mix straight to 2″ tape at Electric Garden Studios in Brooklyn, NY. The record was mixed by Grammy award winning engineer, Ben Kane ( D’angelo’s Black Messiah ).

Each drum heavy ’45 comes in a ‘one of a kind’ hand stamped sleeve. Grab one before they’re gone and see what dem say!
