The Very Best is an awesome collaborative project between Radioclit (producer) and vocalist Esau Mwamwaya, a Malawi Native. This is their 6th release, it is all feel good and big sounds with amazing harmonies. The vocals are great and it is just fun to listen to.
Favoirites: 3, 4, 10, 11
1. Nkhondo - Think of this as an intro, it is awesome, beautiful harmonies and almost no instrumentation.
2. Hear Me - Mid tempo, cool beat, mellow, and beautiful. Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio plays the guitar.
3. Let Go - Love this one. Anthemic, killer melody, and yet still simple.
4. Guju Guju - Super cool beat, more electronic, totally infectious.
5. Bilimankwe Feat. Jerere - A'cappella, awesome.
6. Sweka - More dancehall, not really my thing.
7. Mwana Wanga - Downtempo, minimal, pretty guitar, more great harmonies.
8. Mariana Feat. Seye - Uptempo pop track.
9. The Dead And The Dreaming Feat. Seye - Distorted vocals, and weird distortion at the beginning, but pretty cool.
10. Kanyale - Great beat, another one of my favorites.
11. Umasiye Feat. Baaba Maal - This is another great one, the guest vocalist is amazing.
12. Ufumu - Instrumental track
13. Makes A King Feat. Jutty Taylor - Uptempo and fun to close it out.
