First Listen

Owiny Sigoma Band "Doyoi Nyajo Nam (Quantic Dub)"

The Owiny Sigoma Band came to be when a group of Kenyan musicians invited a group of London players to join in on a collaborative effort back in 2009. The resulting self-titled album, which saw its release earlier this year, has gained a considerable amount of notoriety within the world music circles and has since been followed by two rounds of remixes (the first of which featured a reworking of the tune "Wires" by Theo Parrish). Here we have Quantic's dub of the album's song "Doyoi Nyajo Nam," which hails from the latest round of remixes. The track finds the UK-born, now-Colombia-based producer bathing the traditional African sounds of the original in a pool of futuristic synths and laying down a club-friendly shuffle underneath the original percussion. This remix, along with others from Jesse Hackett and Hello Skinny, can be found on the Tafsiri Sound EP, available now in both digital and vinyl formats.
