Everyone, well, almost everyone,went gaga when Don Jazzy announced the launching of his new record label, Mavin Records on Monday on the micro blogging website, Twitter.
It trended even more when it was announced that ‘kele kele’ crooner, Tiwa Savage has been recruited into the new Mavin family.
The imprint’s debut offering ‘Solar Plexus’ is a 12-tracker compilation LP released on the imprint’s official web page on Tuesday May 8, 2012. While all erstwhile members of the now defunct Mo’ Hits Records including Dr. Sid, Wande Coal and D’Prince provided three solo tracks each, newbie Tiwa Savage contributed a single track to the new LP.
Although the album is impressive, it still comes across as a body of work hurriedly put together. Deviating a little from his trademark dance oriented productions, Don Jazzy spiced ‘Solar Plexus’ with elements from different genres but still maintained enough dance tracks which by the way misses D’Banj’s effective contributions.
A poll conducted by a Lagos based radio station revealed mixed feeling from fans.
