Ethio-jazz-flavored afrobeat from Paris. Les Freres Smith are coming strong with their first 7" on MPM. The 11 piece contraband collective (whose full name is Cafe-Creme & les Freres Smith) has backed Kutiman and Tony Allen alike. Now it's time to shine on their own: "La Marche des Smith" is a beatifully chilled and catchy jam, inspired by the great Mulatu Astake. "Smithian Steppaz" is adding a subliminal West-Indian groove to the mix. Tres cool and just perfect for the summer 2009.
