‘KonKoma Remixed’ sees three of KonKoma’s choicest album cuts remixed and reworked by three of the most exciting synth laden Afro-electro producers around today. With the original versions rooted in 1970s Ghana 'KonKoma Remixed' adds modern edge to their rich blend of Afro-funk, jazz, soul and traditional African rhythms. Their debut album, released earlier this year through Soundway Records, won plaudits for its sophisticated mix of afrocentric music and soulful melodies.
Ahead of his new album in February 2013, Soundway 's latest signing, New Jersey based, Chico Mann (aka Marcos Garcia), pushes his signature style in an up-tempo house informed direction on his reworking of 'Sibashaya Woza'.
On the B-side Huntley and Palmer’s Auntie Flo strips down ‘Handkerchief’ and adds a sparse rattling beat to one of the album highlights, turning it into a hypnotic and almost industrial slice of new afro electronica. Finally French producer and synth magician Débruit whose Afro-infused, genre-bending debut LP ‘From The Horizon’ has been championed by the likes of Gilles Peterson takes on ‘Kpanlogo’ and delivers a futuristic afro post-punk breakdown.
The 12” vinyl comes with a free MP3 of the release.
