Organic New Music Friday #4
Welcome back to another week of Organic New Music Friday, providing you with all the underground breaks, wobbles and remixes that might have slipped under your radar!
Sha Sha Kimbo - 'Mind Your Head' EP (Planet Bliss Records)
Sha Sha Kimbo's latest work takes the form of an 8-piece album, venturing through old-style house, techno and breaks as an ode to the 90s. Speaking about her inspiration for the album, Sha Sha reflects: “The 1990’s were wild. Music was changing, people were letting go and exploring... We were coming of age on the dance floor.

Mind Your Head is out now on Soundcloud, and available to pre-save here.
