Der in Siziliaen geborene, aber inm UK beheimatete DJ und Basketball Fan CLAFRICA gibt mit "Never Not Balling" sein Darker Than Wax Debüt.
A collection of tracks created over the last 2 years, Never Not Balling isone of Clafrica’s most well rounded offerings to date, expressing a numberof moods and emotions through his signature style, all the whileshowcasing the artist’s mastery of studio techniques and hardware. In thetheme of fusing his love of sport and music, ‘Skip Thru Dat Lane’ is a mid-lockdown electro reflection on overcoming difficult times, with the artistenvisioning himself dodging negativity like Allen Iverson skipping throughthe lane. On the heavier side, ‘U Can’t Guard Me’ is a pure release ofstress and frustration, driven by unstoppable hi-hats and a punishingbassline. ‘Halftime’ fuses the sound of old Amiga sound chips with raw
drum machines as an ode to the basketball video games of Clafrica’syouth. At every point in the record, Clafrica’s sonic depth and stylishapproach is on display, driven by raw and unrelenting dance music energy.
