Veteran NYC vocalist-songwriter Monique Bingham connects with the king of South African house Black Coffee for "Deep In The Bottom (of Africa)," a highly-addictive inclusion on Bingham's Best of the Last: 1995-2015 anthology.

"Deep In The Bottom" is a relentless dance tune that sees the NYC house singer riffing about finding one’s spiritual and geographical home in Africa. Black Coffee contributes one of his signature percussion-led productions—built on shakers and a staccato bass line—for the track. The South African-shot music video for “Deep In The Bottom” follows Bingham, Black Coffee, and a group of stylish dancers as they haggle with a CD vendor and perform across streets & rooftops.

Monique Bingham's 26-track compilation, which also features songs with Louie Vega, Abstract Truth and Ralf GUM, is available now. Watch the "Deep In The Bottom (of Africa)" clip below.
