Sinkane aka Ahmed Gallab has created an altogether unique compound of sound, stylistically nostalgic and ultramodern at the same time. Melodically beat-driven and meditatively lyrical, new album, Mean Love rolls like an emotional, existential history of the artist. As well as band members – jaytram on drums, Ish Montgomery on bass, Jonny Lam on guitar, guests include Damon Albarn, David Byrne, The Lijadu Sisters, Money Mark and members of Hot Chip, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, and Blood Orange.
From Gallab’s childhood in Sudan there is a Pan-African influence of popular Sudanese music and haqibah, as well as distinct horn and synth arrangements more common to East Africa. Ahmed’s other influences are clear such as lessons learned from stints with Caribou, Yeasayer and Of Montreal.
