Mother A.I. Radio: Air Texture

From the California Coast Sunset for the London Sunrise. Air Texture founder James Healy presents new and rare ambient, new age, spoken word, and other experimental bliss.

Nairobi’s electronic music scene is quite eclectic, featuring diverse styles of music creating personal narratives by the artists, musicians and producers. This curation features a glimpse of the different styles of music coming out of Nairobi's electronic music scene.

From the sampled based productions of MR.LU* who has been reintroducing Kenyan traditional folklore and narratives in his electronic production; Barno, who blends ambient with elegant piano sounds; to Nabalayo’s ‘Changanya’ style - a modernized folk music form that is built on the aesthetics of local folk music in Kenya - James pulls selected tracks from the album.
