DESCRIPTION

Following on from Torquato and Boghosian’s acclaimed debut on Yoruba is this, a selection of remixes diverse and interesting enough to do justice to the original LP, which received  praise for the rich tapestry of musical sources it drew influence from.

First up, Afefe Iku delivers a much deeper, weightier version of Paradice laden with heavy synth stabs and woody percussive elements.

Aybee takes When U Touch Me - probably the standout ‘club track’ on the original LP – into much deeper realms, stripping back the original groove . It’s remarkably simple but flawlessly executed, the chord motif working effortlessly alongside the crisp hats.

Atone tackles Zulu Girl and in the process unravels a much more mechanical track, a massive mid-tempo thud dominating over delayed cymbal crashes and ghostly vocals.

Overall - a darker vibe and a truly timeless collection of remixes.
