NEW PLAYLIST UPDATE: http://spoti.fi/QLrE2c 

This weeks playlist comes from London based producer Johan Hugo. I am currently with him in Africa, relatively deep in the desert outside of Senegal's capital Dakar about to play one of two shows with his band The Very Best. I should do some explaining... The Very Best are a collaboration between London based DJ/production duo Radioclit and Esau Mwamwaya, a singer from Lilongwe, Malawi. They make music I will describe as modern - fusing elements of pop, hip hop, Afro beat with traditional Malawian influence. We are here predominately to play a festival called Blues de Fleuve which is held each year 300 miles out of the city and is visited by some of the best musicians in Africa. Joining us will be the great Senegalese singer and guitarist Baaba Maal.

Thank you to Winston Marshall, The Very Best, Baaba Maal and everyone here who has made this weekend possible. I will be posting pictures on the bands instagram if you want to see first hand what we are up to:http://instagram.com/thevaccines
