Uproot Andy and Studio 189 deliver the goods in their Bumper to Bumper remix album.

If you were in need of some new tracks for your dance playlist look no further.


Uproot Andy has collaborated with Studio 189the fashion brand and social initiative founded by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah—to release the new 16-track remix album, and accompanying mixtape, Bumper to Bumper.

Bumper to Bumper will take you on a journey through all the tracks you probably had on repeat last year, from Mr Eazi's "Leg Over" to Bodak Yellow," through a new lens crafted by the Brooklyn-based DJ and producer.

The hits are recognizable but given a completely new life through Uproot Andy's blend of afrobeats, baile funk, dembow, Afro-Latino and Caribbean rhythms.

"I'm really inspired by the way Studio 189 balances local Ghanaian cultural traditions with a global style that speaks to everyone," the DJ mentions. "I wanted to emphasize the shared culture of the different genres and remix the songs so as to blur the distinctions between them, so that it would flow together and feel like one style even as the language of the singing changes from song to song."

Get into it and purchase all 16 remixes for just $1 below—you wont find a better deal than that. Plus, if you're in NYC, catch these sounds and more live tonight at Esther & Carol (details in the Instagram flyer below).
