tUnE-yArDs release "Water Fountain (DJ Marfox Remix ft. Pearls Negras)," their first remix off their latest album, 'Nikki Nack.'
<p><strong><a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/tag/tune-yards/" target="_blank">tUnE-yArDs</a></strong>, <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/tag/pearls-negras/" target="_blank"><strong>Pearls Negras</strong></a>, and <a href="http://www.okayafrica.com/news/branko-buraka-som-sistema-red-bull-studio-mix/" target="_blank"><strong>DJ Marfox</strong></a> each deliver exhilaratingly energetic music, so it's not too surprising (and no less compelling) that the three acts have come together in the rework of "Water Fountain." In this first remix off tUnE-yArDs' latest album <em>Nikki Nack</em>, Lisbon-based producer Marfox creates a maze of sound as he melds the frenetic vocals of Garbus and Brazilian teenage rappers Pearls Negras with rapid electronic beats and zips. With its fuzzy bassline and Garbus's soaring yell, the original "Water Fountain" seemed engagingly frantic itself but, by adding Pearls Negras' no-nonsense delivery and his own kuduro-inflected effects, DJ Marfox amps up the song a few notches. Check out the remix below, which comes in support of tUnE-yArDs' recently launched <a href="http://tune-yards.com/thewaterfountain/" target="_blank">The Water Fountain</a> initiative, a fund for water-related causes through album sales, US ticket earnings, licensing deals and more.</p><p><div class="preroll-video"></div><ora-player></ora-player></p><p><span style="display:block;position:relative;padding-top:56.25%;" class="rm-shortcode" data-rm-shortcode-id="eb8f31cee774f879bcf34f8233f017c9"><iframe type="lazy-iframe" data-runner-src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/TLia6QB5YdE?rel=0" width="100%" height="auto" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%;height:100%;"></iframe></span></p>
