James Bangura – Interpretation of Sound
James Bangura is up next on New York City’s Mister Saturday Night. The Washington-based artist is an exciting new talent: said to be a nomad who takes in various influences and can never be pinned down to one style. Drum ‘n’ bass was said to be a huge influence on Bangura during his younger years back in Alabama, and he revisits those seminal beats here on Interpretation Of Sound. From the contorted groove of ‘Big Change’, a sharp stepper that incorporates dub techno influences, to the meditative and polyrhythmic hypnotism of ‘The Diffuser’ or the depressive jungle introspections of ‘Taking Loose’ – this one really takes the genre into exciting new realms.
