This is the third Autonomous Africa EP, the idea being that one EP is released each year and all proceeds are donated to a charity in Africa. Last year's second volume, along with a fundraising night in Glasgow and another in London raised several thousand pounds for the Mtandika Mission in Tanzania (more info on that below).
Midland grew up in Tanzania and his parents run the aforementioned charity so it feels fitting that AA continues to raise funds for that. Midland has once again contributed a stellar track as has AA stalwart Auntie Flo (who has now contributed to all three releases). This year they are joined by Glasgow funksters General Ludd and then Twitch rounds off the EP. All being well, this year will also see an AA compilation album of music from Africa.
