William Onyeabor "Something You'll Never Forget (Policy Remix)"
Earlier this month, we shared news of a remix series organized by Luaka Bop and Moog, who issued reworks of songs from pioneering African electronic musician William Onyeabor by the likes of John Talabot, James Holden, Daphni, Optimo, Dâm-Funk, Secret Circuit, and many more. Pulled from the ongoing series is this contribution from New York-based producer Policy, which finds the artist twisting Onyeabor's "Something You'll Never Forget" into a wonderfully cacophonous slice of playful house. Laced with an incalculable amount of percussion and a sluggish four-on-the-floor kick, Policy's remix maintains the adventurous vibe of the synth-streaked original song while still finding a way to fit it into a package much more appropriate for modern dancefloors. Long story short: Another job well done by Policy.
