UK-based producer and DJ who grew up in Morocco Jalal Ramdani allies with Mr. Silk, Team Distant, and Mel D for the violently hymn offer "Sesa", a song about a young African boy who refuses to walk the ways of God. The track is based on pulsating bass drums and deep brass and uses Mel D's punchy vocals, interrupted by clicking beats and whining chants that cut through swirling synthesizers in a haunting yet catchy showcase.
The powerful finish of the original track channels its characteristic sound, which combines the groove of modern house music with the traditional influences of its African heritage, and also makes room for two remixes, one by newcomer Adjuma, which has the catchy feel of "Sesa" with stripped-down melodies in contrast to crisp snares, while another version of the track reveals a softer vocal tone led by crisp percussion and hazy synths, demonstrating the versatility of the production.
With thoughtful sounds pulsing with soulful storytelling techniques, Ramdani on "Sesa" reveals another glimpse into his creative mind as he builds on the artistry that began in 2019. He refines his music with summery instrumentals that move us, the explosive talent is preparing for a tour as he positions himself at the forefront of the Afro House movement.
