Audio: Essa – The World Belongs To You (Prod. By Ta-Ku) [+Live show info]
With the hotly anticipated new album for Essa (formerly Yungun) in full swing, ‘The Misadventures of The Middle Man’ aims to be a cornerstone for the artist whose collaborations with Guru [RIP], Nas and Mark Ronson have earnt widespread respect in the game.
‘The World Belongs To You’ with production from Australia’s Ta-Ku is the perfect way to usher in the summer months, and the video will give it a further visual punch (shot on tour in China, Australia and Croatia’s Soundwave Festival). The single will have another Ta-Ku produced track, ‘Call Me Essa’ which is a non album bonus track only available on the single.
His full album is due out in early May, with a bonus seven-inch featuring a vinyl only remix from Tall Black Guy, but the talents of Waajeed, Platinum Pied Pipers/Slum Village, fLako, Eric Lau, Budgie and more are also called up for the album. His album release party on the 23rd of April will have Kathrin deBoer, Eric Lau (DJ Set), DJ Gilla and many special guests.
