Taken from the forthcoming David Bowie-inspired EP by Black Einstein, titled Whatever Happened To Major Tom, “Arabia” features spirited UK emcee Mystro along with Maseo aka Plug 3 from Hip Hop legends De La Soul.
Colin Emmanuel (produced for likes of Eric Roberson, Jamelia, The Beta Band, Estelle and Beverly Knight) is the musical mastermind behind the Black Einstein collective and handles production of the entire David Bowie inspired project; on this track in particular sampling “The Secret Life Of Arabia” from the pop icon’s 1997 album, Heroes.
Built through friendships formed within the London musicians community, the collective centers around producer Colin Emmanuel (formerly known as C Swing) and builds on his previous solo release, Emmanuel – D’llusions of Grandeur. The forthcoming Black Einstein EP, Whatever Happened To Major Tom, will be available for free download next month, also featuring two talented, soulful singers from the Black Einstein collective, Baby Sol and Xavier.
