A year after his Deepblak colleague AYBEE presented his Bazile Republic project to the Croatian label, Oakland’s Damon Bell joins Burek for his latest 12″. Following hot on the heels of his Ankh Boogie EP for Don’t Be Afraid, ‘Stand By Me’ is another welcome showcase for the wide-ranging, mercurial talents showcased on the producer’s 2015 debut album ‘Blues for The Libyan’.
The EP’s three tracks fuse the myriad musical influences that contribute to Bell’s output of jazz, afro-beat, boogie & bossa-influenced house rhythms, and find themselves well suited to Burek’s catalogue of releases which have also featured Kink, Highlife mainstay Esa and fellow Croat Ilija Rudman since its inception in 2011.
