Tonight's Music Club features a futuristic take on Congolese street music. Traditional Congolese instruments provide the backdrop for synth tones, chanting, and electronic percussion. Aside from the natural and creative genre blending, I really like the use of effects on this song and the album in general. I feel that whoever mixed this record definitely has a good handle on the nuances of both styles and blended them seamlessly. Aspiring audio engineers (and even some pros) could learn a thing or two from taking a listen to this album.

What are you listening to tonight?
