Audio: Debo Band 'Gedawo (Kiddid Remix)'


Brooklyn boutique label Electric Cowbell is set to release a brand new batch of eclectic 45s. This week, they're highlighting Boston-area Ethiopian group Debo Band's cover of "Gedawo," a 1970s Ethio-funk classic from singer Ayalew Mesfin. While Debo Band's version sounds like a spastic afro-rock power tune (a 15-piece band layed down the live backing tracks), Kiddid's remix takes things into dub-territory — deep bass, synth upstrokes, et al. Grab both on 7" vinyl and stream/download Kiddid's remix below.
