Jaiyede Afro by Orlando Julius with The Heliocentrics, out this week

Via Strut: "Asked how his band, The Heliocentrics, would approach their new collaborative album with Nigerian saxophone legend Orlando Julius, drummer Malcolm Catto said that he wanted to record the psychedelic album that Orlando had never made, echoing cult Nigerian bands like The Psychedelic Aliens and others.

The resulting album is a revelation. Brimming with thick afrobeat grooves, the incredible playing of Orlando Julius and touches of otherworldly sonic alchemy, Jaiyede Afro is one of the most exciting new afrobeat recordings we've heard in a long time.

The album is out this week, and always a limited quantity of 180 gram vinyl editions are available exclusively on the Strut store. A making-of feature including footage of both artists in the studio together can be streamed below."
