Africanism sparks relaunch with release of Erik Hagleton ? City Of Gold
After a few years on ice, Bob Sinclar’s Africanism label is making its grand return. Initially launched in 2001 in collaboration with DJ Gregory, the label has now reemerged under the wing of Amsterdam-based record label Armada Music to create a new wave with fresh productions and instant classics, of which Erik Hagleton – City Of Gold is the first.
Constructed from the stuff that legends are made of, Erik Hagleton’s ‘City Of Gold’ goes down the floor-filling road that circles round the Africanism stamp. Juggling smooth, yet groovy percussion loops with deep bass, soft synth swirls and choir-like vocal chants, this track turns any spot into a makeshift dance floor, all in tandem with the excellent remixes from Daddy’s Groove and Nico De Andrea.
