Australian independent electro-world outfit Amanaska return with
their third full-length album, the urban-influenced Escape. Led by artist and musician Simon Lewis and featuring
collaborations with N’fa Jones (1200 Techniques), Tania Doko (Bachelor Girl) and
Dianna May Clark, Escape adds shades
of hip-hop and urban to the diverse musical palette that is Amanaska’s
trademark, an eclectic mix of world music, chillout and electronica.
The collaborations with N’Fa – lead singer of Australian hip-hop
group 1200 Techniques - herald a more commercial sound for Amanaska. “Hear Them
Calling” features a spoken word rap reminiscent of the Blue Lines-era Massive Attack and lead single “Run From It” fuses
urban, dance and pop.
