"This mixtape is an ode to the roots of music. Just like humanity, music has its origins in Africa. It started off with rhythmic percussions on random objects which later evolved into real instruments. Together with this humanity, the rhythms spread across te world, leaving their trace in new kinds of music. Up to the present day, its influence is clearly present in funk, house, hiphop, grime, club music and future beats. I provided some proof in the form of this mixtape."
