Owiny Sigoma Band 'Yukimwi (Blludd Relations Remix)'

London production duo Blludd Relations remix Owiny Sigoma Band's 'Yukimwi.'


Nairobi/London soundclash Owiny Sigoma Band recently received the remix treatment from London production duo Blludd Relations.

The remix, which premiered on Boiler Room, is a testament to the band's growing popularity following a successful sophomore showing on Power Punch. Stream "Yukimi" in its original and remixed form below, out now via Brownswood Recordings.
