Armed with pan-global jams as fluid as their name is immodest, The Very Best did an impressive job of living up to their boastful moniker on their '08 debut mixtape, Esau Mwamwaya and Radioclit Are the Very Best, and 2009's sensation-stirring Afropop/indie-dance diaspora uniter Warm Heart of Africa. Their much-anticipated follow-up MTMTMK may be slightly more narrow in scope and brighter in production luster, but the boundary-blurring mischief and straight-up exuberance are all present and accounted for.

Blasthaus says…

The Very Best is Malawi's Esau Mwamwaya and London based producer Johan Hugo (We Don't Belong in Pacha). By all accounts, the far-flung variables that comprise The Very Best shouldn't coincide — but then again, how many bands can say they met in an East London (Hackney) junk shop? The chance introduction over the purchase of a bicycle in 2008 led production duo Radioclit to invite Esau Mwamwaya into their studio to collaborate on the mixtape that would launch their career.
