Announcing DEM SAY AH

Dem Say Ah

It is with great pleasure and joy that I share news about my forthcoming record, Dem Say Ah featuring Akoya Afrobeat, officially out 4/15/14!

What started as a remix for Grammy Award Winning Jazz artist Gregory Porter, morphed into a straight Afrobeat dancefloor situation. For the recordings I came together with Akoya and Kaleta, Victor Axelrod aka Ticklah, Maurice Brown, Chris Rob and DJ Spinna.

For more on how the record came to fruition and to pre-order your copy, visit our Kickstarter page and let the get down begin!
