Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 (Record Sleeve/Tour Graphics)
As part of the launch of Night Dreamer Records, apart from the Art Direction of the label, I was honoured to design the record sleeve of the first live recorded project of Grammy Nominated Seun Kuti (Son of Fela Kuti) who performs with the original Egypt 80.
Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 jumped into the studio and cut all four tracks in a single take, capturing the atmosphere of the session itself, with all its imperfections! A snapshot of a legendary outfit at the top of their game!
The Vinyl is available digitally in all good record stores and also on tour throughout Europe!
