Nicola Conte & Gianluca Petrella – Nigeria (Tall Black Guy Boogie Love Remix feat. Broken Keys) 12″ Vinyl

The third release in the series of 12” EPs featuring reinterpretations of tracks from the album “People Need People” – the brilliant album by Nicola Conte and Gianluca Petrella released in 2021 – features the excellent collaboration of two American artists from the Detroit scene Tall Black Guy and Andrès. Terrel Wallace AKA Tall Black Guy, raised on bread, Motown, jazz and early hip hop… he has become a standard-bearer of the current hip hop beat scene. With a steady stream of sample-flled productions and clever flips, he has won fans all over the world. His production skills are showcased in his own rendition of “Nigeria”, where he calls on Broken Keys AKA Tommy Sheridan DJ, producer, vocalist and multi-Instrumentalist from Cleveland, Ohio.
On side AA instead, DJ Andrés, now a revered fgure of the Detroit scene praised by the eclectic Moodyman and Carl Graig among others, delivers a house version of “African Tribes” worthy of the most important dancefloors, in which he mixes soul-jazz parts with fragments of vocal samples and spoken words, all sublimated into a musical mixture with a strong deep house impact, with rhythm and mood typical of the black culture. Originally conceived as a trilogy, this successful reworking series will eventually embrace a further fourth chapter including two new Fred P. interpretations of the tracks “African Spirits” and “Tribes”!

Music Is My Sanctuary Guest Mix: Broken Keys

Music is My Sanctuary is proud to present the latest in our wide-ranging Guest Mix series. For this one, we head to the Midwest, and more specifically Cleveland, where we linked up with multi-instrumentalist, producer, singer, and DJ – Broken Keys.

As one of the biggest names in the Cleveland Electronic/beats scene for over a decade, Broken Keys has solidified his name as a producer to always keep an eye (and ear) on. We kindly asked him to record a little something for us, and needless to say, he delivered. The vibe perfectly captures not only his own productions but also his inspirations and current spins.

“My approach for this set was to include mostly newer stuff I’ve been digging and to highlight a few of my favorite Cleveland artists. It’s a one-hour journey through hip hop, indie, house, jazz, and beat stuff.

I’ve also included some exclusives – an unreleased collaboration with Tall Black Guy (Suite For Candido) from a forthcoming collab release. And to round out the mix, I closed it with an unreleased song (Always The First to Know) that will be featured on my upcoming full-length album, due out next year.”
