MC YALLAH & EOMAC
Ugandan rapper MC Yallah joins Phantom Limb for the release of her blistering new 12” Mama Waliwamanyii. Produced by Irish electronic artist Eomac (one half of R&S Records’ Lakker), the EP fuses Yallah’s breakneck Luganda language rapping with Eomac’s powerful, purposeful beats.
MC Yallah is Kenyan by heritage, but born and raised in Kampala, where she is a key member of the much-celebrated Nyege Nyege crew. Her debut release - a collaboration with French producer Debmaster - surfaced in 2018 on Nyege’s Hakuna Kulala imprint. Björk recently picked up on the Yallah phenomenon, spinning her tracks in DJ sets and mixes.
Eomac (Dublin-based producer Ian McDonnell) is one half of Phantom Limb favourites Lakker, whose pitch-black avant-techno graces both dancefloors and experimental music venues the world over. His solo records - including the vital 2016 album Bedouin Trax LP of Middle Eastern samples, released on the UAE’s Bedouin Records - are favourites of Phantom Limb’s A&R team.
