eno williams’ third outing brings the party fever to a new level of intensity as it builds unifying walls of funk, afrobeat, disco and pop to brighten up our lives.

Long lauded for their jubilant, explosive live shows, Ibibio Sound Machine fully capture that energy on their third album. their songs have been praised for following "in the tradition of much African music, [making] themselves the conscience of a community." By pulsing the mystic shapes of Williams' lines through further inventive, glittering collages of genre, Ibibio Sound Machine crack apart the horizon separating cultures, between nature and technology, between joy and pain, between tradition and future. “afrobeat rhythms, disco grooves, wobbling synth funk, squealing guitars, tooting brass and soaring vocals that switch between English and Nigerian are all essential ingredients to the Ibibio sound machine party” 8/10 – uncut.
