Ilan Bluestone feat. El Waves – Mama Africa
After a monumental album debut in the form of Scars, it looks like Ilan Bluestone is ready for his next big move. He plans to start 2019 with a brand new EP entitled We Are The Universe, which will feature six original productions. To give a taste of what’s to come, he’s put out his latest release ‘Mama Africa’. The track will be the first single off the upcoming EP. After a huge success with ‘Will We Remain’, the Anjuna mainstay has brought back EL Waves on vocal duty.
‘Mama Africa’ latches onto the value of cultural roots. Seeing that EL Waves is African herself makes her the perfect vocalist to give life to the song. And this she does beautifully with her mesmerizing vocals. As like in all of Ilan’s other releases, the driving basslines paired with multi-layered synths will tug at your heartstrings.
Here’s what EL Wave had to say about the track:
“This is a song of love and blessing for my mother, father, and loved ones. In Akan culture we recognize the sacrifices that each individual makes when raising children of the next generation, passing down wisdom from old to new. Sending out blessings is something we do to make love and appreciation and to say thank you”.
Ever since ‘Mama Africa’ first premiered at ABGT300 Hong Kong, the track has become a staple at all of Ilan’s sets. His loyal fans who have heard it live have had nothing but good to say about the monster track.
In addition to the track release comes his ‘We Are The Universe’ World Tour. Tickets go on sale on February 20, so be sure to check if he is playing at a city near you here.
