Audio: Motèl Mari 'Eternal Peasant Remixes: South Africa x South Florida'

Dirty Paraffin and The Brother Moves on remix new BLK JKS project Motel Mari.


Motèl Mari, the textural soundscape project from BLK JKS members Mpumi McataTshepang Ramoba and collaborator João Orecchia, gets a batch of cross-continental remixes from South African and South Floridan producers ARK IX, Ashworth, Dirty Paraffin, and The Brother Moves. The sounds span haze beats, glitch bass and more straightforward guitar-led reworkings, with the SA inclusions —  Dirty Paraffin's take on "According To Who" and The Brother Moves On ballad — being clear standouts.
