JD Twitch, Midland, and Auntie Flo Prep 'Autonomous Africa' 12"
Optimo's JD Twitch has announced the second release in his Autonomous Africa series, which seeks to draw attention to the problems caused by outside interference in the affairs of African countries and donates all proceeds from the record sales to a charity in Africa. Last year's inaugural EP featured all-new tracks from JD Twitch and fellow Glaswegian Auntie Flo, with proceeds going to Médecins Sans Frontières. For this year's release, Leeds producer Midland joins the two Scots in delivering four jittery, Afrobeat-inspired tracks. The money from this release will be going to the Mtandika Mission in Tanzania, a small charity run by Midland's parents. And though the closest thing we have to a release date so far is "late July," samples of all four tracks can be streamed in the player below, where the tracklist can also be checked out.
