Tony Allen - There Is No End (2LP)


Drum-Grooves meet Rap & Hip-Hop – das letzte Aufnahmeprojekt des legendären Tony Allen!
Als der kultisch verehrte Afrobeat-Drummer am 30. April 2020 wenige Wochen vor seinem 80. Geburtstag
in Paris verstarb, trauerte die Musikwelt. Annähernd 60 Jahre lang war er der pulsierende Herzschlag des
Afrobeat und Jazz gewesen, hatte mit Fela Kuti und Ginger Baker, Damon Albarn und Techno-Größen
“There Is No End” ist jetzt das Vermächtnis dieses generationsübergreifenden Künstlers, es bringt seine
schweißtreibenden Schlagzeug-Grooves mit Rapper/innen und Sänger/innen aus den unterschiedlichsten
Winkeln der Welt zusammen, darunter Sampa The Great aus Sambia, Nah Eeto aus Kenia, den Amerikan-
ern Lord Jah-Monte Ogbon, Marlowe, Tsunami, Jeremiah Jae, Danny Brown, Nate Bone u.a.
Ein würdiges Vermächtnis, von dem noch zukünftige Musikergenerationen zehren können!

For all those who knew him, he was a deeply spiritual man whose life's mission was not just to create a new musical language, but to pass it on to subsequent generations. In thinking back on the incredible process of creating this album without Tony physically present to guide him, producer Vincent Taeger remarked that his friend and mentor "was a teacher without speaking... a drummer and a guardian, with a great artistic vision and that vision filled the songs even after he had left us." Ben Okri, like everyone else involved in this valedictory album, had a very similar experience, declaring in awe that "this man could have lived another 150 years and kept creating new worlds. He had become the master shaman of his art. He knew himself and his mind. He wanted the album to be open to the energies of a new generation... but like a great mathematician or scientist who found a code of for a new world, with just a few beats, he created this extraordinary canvas." Featured artists include Skepta, Sampa The Great, Lava La Rue, Danny Brown, Damon Albarn and many others
