Roy X – Odoyewu

A: “Odoyewu”
B: “Sakawa”

Roy X (ne Jimmy Taylor) is the youngest son of Ghanaian Highlife/Afrobeat legend Ebo Taylor. His inherited rhythm spills into his rapping and on this 7″ he raps over music created by Philophon label boss/producer Max Whitefield. On “Oduyewu” he pays respect to the timeless sound his father created; on “Sakawa” he meanders through dream-time, helped along by a Whitefield Brothers sample interwoven into the live music bed.
