Petite Noir Drops A Noirwave Remix Of French/British Indie Pop Band Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains

Cape Town's Petite Noir drops a noir wave remix of French/British indie pop band Frànçois & the Atlas Mountains' "The Way to The Forest."


Last we heard from South Africa's Petite Noir he and his Drone Society collective had teamed up with Gold Coast Trading Co. on the Gold Drones capsule collection “dedicated to the Soweto youth uprising.” Today the “noirwave” godfather adds his post punk revivalist touch to rework French/British indie pop band Frànçois & the Atlas Mountains. On the noirwave remix of “The Way To The Forest,” thunderous drums announce the Cape Town-based producer/multi-instrumentalist's dramatic diversion from his Domino family. The Capital of Cool Collective member blends a rhythmic xylophone over crystalizing synths with stretched out, looped, vocals from the original. The result is a sound that is both chaotic and soothing. Listen to the remix below. For more from Petite Noir download his Africa In Your Earbuds Mixtape.

The hit single amassed over 30 millions streams, with a steady run on many African charts this year, and is sure to keep building on top of the already impressive accomplishments.

As is typical and unfortunate in our new world of socially distancing, the two weren't able to join forces and wardrobes for an epic collaborative video. Instead, Director Adasa Cookey's brilliance manifested itself into a short film.
