I am releasing a compilation of Tru Roots Project tracks called ‘Love is a Dangerous Language (Rare Remixes)’. It’s eclectic, but the music has always been that.
The Tru Roots Project started life because my promoters thought the ‘Beats Without Borders LP’ sounded too different to ‘Good Voodoo Afro House Vol 1’, so I put it out under a different name and made the ‘Sweet LP’. Guess which one was more critically acclaimed and sold more copies? The Tru Roots Project LP. As a side note – I was never happy with the Sweet LP so I remixed it, which is why there is the Sweet LP Afro Edition.
Anyway, back to the Tru Roots Project. It morphed. Always unpredictable – veering from Latin Jazz instrumentals to Rock to Afrobeat. No two albums are the same (but my long time friend and collaborator Akin Fatunmbi is on all of them in some capacity.)
There are many versions of Tru Roots Project tunes. Here, I have compiled the rarest ones. Ones that I love and I hope you will too.
