Brooklyn’s own Analog Players Society is back with a fresh new EP called CKY to JFK, which is out now! Fresh on the heels of their critically acclaimed Hurricane Season In Brooklyn album, drummer and studio don Amon returns to his Analog Players Society project with a 3 track excavation entitled CKY to JFK Vol. 1. Setting out to explore his original West African influences, this project is once again a collective effort spearheaded and curated by Amon in his home turf of The Hook Studio and features a revolving cast of singers and musicians close to the cause, this time hailing from the country of Guinea.

Fresh on the heels of their critically acclaimed Hurricane Season In Brooklyn album, drummer and studio don Amon returns to his Analog Players Society project with a 3 track excavation entitled CKY to JFK Vol. 1. Setting out to explore his original West African influences, this project is once again a collective effort spearheaded and curated by Amon in his home turf of The Hook Studio and features a revolving cast of singers and musicians close to the cause, this time hailing from the country of Guinea.

Things kick off with “Coule’ba”, a foot-stomping track with an infectious guitar lick, a pulsing synth bassline, percussion blasts and the soaring, powerful vocals of Missia Saran Diabate, a well known Guinean vocalist who has made an indelible mark on New York City’s West African Jazz scene. Next up is the live vibe of “Korosi” with its killer drum break, inspired horns, Highlife guitar, deep percussion and call-and-response vocals from Petite Conde and Missia Saran Diabate on backup. Rounding off the EP is “Moula”, a driving, spiritual joint with mystical balaphone melodies, sky-high vocals and four to the floor drums. It’s a beautiful, hypnotic track that would not sound out of place in a late night Berlin club or a sunrise DJ set at Burning Man.

This is the brilliance of the Analog Players Society – a seamless melding of traditional vibes and instrumentation and razor sharp studio wizardry coupled with modern Dance production in a way only they can do. Watch out for the single from the next album dropping in May – there’s much more where this came from!
