Black Needle Noise Records, in association with No Devotion Records, presents the brand new Black Needle Noise single “SyStem Bi” featuring Senegal based singer Fakeba. And it’s an excellent track, catchy, excellent vocals, the lot! Judge for yourself, the single is out now on Bandcamp. System Bi by Black Needle Noise with Fakeba Based in Dakar, Senegal, Fakeba makes electronic music and sings in her native Wolof – the language of Senegal, Gambia and Mauritania.
