At Dutty Artz HQ in Brooklyn they keep looking south, moving in the peripheries of urban, looking for fresh air for their second and third world ghetto rhythms. Their new bet is CIAfrica, a label based in Paris which is interested in reggae, dancehall and hip-hop from Africa, specifically that from the Ivory Coast. In an attempt to draw attention to CIAfrica’s work, Jace Clayton (aka DJ /rupture) has been digging in the label’s catalogue to select some twenty cuts –by MCs like Barboza, Manusa, Nasty or Prince Abraham, most of them produced by Amadou aka Green Dog, the label’s head honcho – which he has gathered on “DJ /rupture presents CIAfrica: Clan Des Indigenes Accables of United States of Africa”. The album will be released on Dutty Artz on 24th August.
