Yoruba Records is happy to release this dance floor ready EP by label head Osunlade. Stretching across a range of styles there’s something for everyone in this release, an absolute must for every DJ’s bag. The EP opens up with the title track, What Pho. A relaxing jam driven by a powerful sounding grand piano and complimented by shakers, the added backing percussion and subtle bird chirps lend well to the creation of this track’s rainforest-esque mystique. Next up is the deep, almost jazzy track – Jus’ Anuda Groove. The rolling bass line and four to the floor beat will get you moving – and keep you there - as Osunlade reminds us that this is just another groove. Opening up the B-side is Schavanna, a funky, guitar-driven track whose pulsating bass line and friendly but muffled vocals will keep people moving on the floor. Finally, the EP closes with The Waiting Game, a hypnotic, tribal-learning track with a foot-stomping beat, colored with the seductive vocals of Rainy Payne, it’s hard to tell which is more captivating, the groove itself or the story line she unfolds.
