AUDIO: Hanu Jay – “Wow (Can I Blow Your Mind)” (EP)

Talented Nigerian singer, Hanu Jay comes through with his 4th studio project; an extended playlist titled Wow (Can I Blow Your Mind).

The project has seven songs and is a brilliant sonic effort, right from the ethereal soul food choir rendition on opener Happy, to the synth-heavy Alright which evokes a party vibe, the production complements Hanu Jay’s talent for unconventional melodies. On Party on the Moon, those elements are present, as the Delta-born musician cajoles everyone to the dancefloor, complemented by Disally on production duties.

Growing up, Hanu Jay loved listening to Konto, an indigenous derivation of Dancehall and on this tape, the influence shines on tracks like Wavy and Rythmn & Soul where he broods over a lover, tenderly singing about their imperfections while accompanying horns elevate the mood of the record. The project is cohesive and succinct, running just over twenty minutes.
