Acclaimed Italian producer, songwriter and live performer Clap! Clap! (aka Cristiano Crisci) has shared another new track from his forthcoming album ‘A Thousand Skies’, set for release in February 2017 via Black Acre.
Following on from the jubilantly off-kilter club track ‘Araqis’, the beautiful ‘Nguwe’ weaves afro-folk, soul and dub and features a guest vocal spot from rising South African star Bongeziwe Mabandla. About the collaboration Crisci claims: “I’m such a fan of his voice and style but was keen to collaborate on a more experimental song with him, taking us both in a new direction.” The new album also features collaborations with Berlin-based duo OY, fellow Italian beatmaker HDADD, and South African band (and Planet Mu signees) John Wizards.
