Based in the UK but inspired by the sound of the African continent, Esa Williams is an idiosyncratic talent. This is highlighted by the fact that despite being two years old, Gwalaka Fortune still sounds like it came from the future. Issued on Swedish label Omena, it features the weird vocals and dreamy ambience of "8/8 (Son Op)" as well as "Big Snoek", which follows a more conventional path with its warm keys and bubbling deep house groove. However, it's also true that experimentation is never too far on an ESA record, and the doubled-up, acid-soaked rhythm of "Umatic 3000" shows that he is an innovative artist.
