Circles by The Very Best

Looks like we can see a glimpse of bril­liance again from the group, The Very Best. Esau Mwamwaya, Johan Hugo and Mc Mo Laudi present a wild ride through the influ­ences of their new album due in 2011 with this mix enti­tled, “Cir­cles” (pre­sented by oki-ni)…

I guess some of the songs in this mix will sur­prise peo­ple who are famil­iar with our music, but in one way or another they all mean some­thing to our musi­cal jour­ney. We used to call Esau Mwamwaya the African Phil Collins because he’s a drum­mer and singer, and we also tried to work with Phil on the Warm Heart Of Africa album, hence why he’s in the mix.

When we where record­ing the new album this sum­mer we shut our­selves in a cabin in the Swedish for­est and didn’t have any music but a Cold­play CD left behind in the house. Every time we drove to the shop to get some food or drinks we would hear Ali­cia Keys ‘Try Sleep­ing With A Bro­ken Heart’ on the radio and we fell in love with the song… Adiemus is the kind of majes­tic song we hope to make one day… 

The Very Best has always been a lot about melody and that’s kind of the theme for this mix too, melodies that blow our mind.

— Esau Mwamwaya, Johan Hugo and MC Mo Laudi
