A.L.A [Electronic / Dance]

RELEASE: 09.03.2007

LABEL: Documented

VERTRIEB: Groove Attack


Wunmi is on her own in the world of music. You may know her familiar voice from the myriad of afro-dance anthems she has graced: Masters At Work's "Ekabo" and "MAW Expensive", Bugz In The Attic's "Zombie", Trüby Trio's "Make A Move" and more.

A vocal style that talks directly to the listener, a sound rooted as much in London and New York club culture as traditional juju and afro-beat from Lagos. You may also have caught her amazing high energy live shows and her unique self-styled wardrobe, all dating back from her days with Soul II Soul in London in the late 1980s.

Wunmi's new album for 2006, "A.L.A.", is her solo debut and it is a treat for all fans of dance music and afro flavours alike. The subject matter is hard-hitting, covering alienation, loneliness, the struggle of everyday life, and the ongoing injustice of corrupt regimes.

The production is sharp and varied with contributions from Fauna Flash, Seiji, Pastaboys, Tony Nwachukwu (NEPA), Siji, DJ Rogall and more. The album as a whole is unmistakeably Wunmi, speaking from the heart, both thought-provoking and fun-loving. From the madcap breakbeat of "Left To Right" to a new Wunmi-ised cover of The Police's "Message In A Bottle", you won't ever have heard an album quite like this one.
