Audio: Owiny Sigoma Band’s “Doyoi Nyajo Nam” (Quantic Dub Remix)


Owiny Sigoma Band’s new release, Tafsiri Sound EP features four awesome remixes of songs from their self-named album, which dropped earlier this year. The project, brought to us by Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings, is a compilation of Owiny classics and funky artists like Quantic, Hello Skinny, and Jesse Hackett. “Doyoi Nyajo Nam” was already one of our favorite Owiny tracks, but when Quantic got on the remixed track, they brought it to a whole new level, adding afrofunk, bass, and XXL drums to create a booty-shaking, chest-thumbing dance floor worthy jam. This remix is a total summer concert anthem. Download the track for FREE here. Love it? Read more about the EP, and get it in vinyl or go digital.

A 7.1-magnitude earthquake, which rattled Mexico City on September 19, was felt as far down as Zapotalito, and the very next morning, its Black, Indigenous and poor Mestizo residents, who depend on the area's handful of lagoons for food and commerce, woke up to an awful smell and that terrible scene of floating fish.
