Audio: Seun Kuti x Spoek Mathambo 'The Good Leaf'


Two of our all-out favorite dudes link up in this remix of — top LP of 2k11 choice — From Africa With Fury: Rise closer track "The Good Leaf." South African afrofuturist Spoek Mathambo takes Seun Kuti's tune on a trip down south from its Nigerian origins. The afrobeat horns and feel remain, but Spoek pumps up the rhythm and adds a layer of delayed haze over the whole thing. Check out Seun Kuti & Egypt 80's upcoming US tour dates and preview Spoek's upcoming Father Creeper LP. Stream and download "The Good Leaf (Spoek Mathambo Remix)" below.
