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.

Rema Welcomes 2021 With New Single 'Bounce'

The Don Jazzy produced track reminds us of why the Nigerian singer-songwriter is topping charts.

Nigerian golden boy Rema took his time on deciding how to start of 2021—and we're glad he did.

The afropop hitmaker is out with his first project of the year, "Bounce", after stunning fans with word of an upcoming album, and the cooks in this kitchen have not disappointed.

Keeping it in the Mavin Records family, legendary producer Don Jazzy sprinkles his magic on the track, while undoubtedly motivating the young singer-songwriter to be his best self. And with this track being like nothing we've heard from Rema before, one could say Jazzy succeeded. "Bounce", fast-paced and fierce, is a love song dedicated to bewitchingly beautiful and blessed bottoms. The candid declaration and hip shaking beat are a force duo and we can't help but love it.

Of the single and collaboration with head honcho Don Jazzy, Rema says, "This record was inspired by the luscious and magnificent body of the African woman. Furthermore, I'm really excited about this tune because it's my first single with the legendary Don Jazzy."

Honestly, when you start the year off with a banger, you get to make songs about butts.
