John Talabot Remixes William Onyeabor's 'Atomic Bomb (Hot Chip Cover)'

Stream Barcelona producer John Talabot's remix of Hot Chip's cover of "Atomic Bomb," a gem from 70s Nigerian synth-funk man William Onyeabor.


The folks at Luaka Bop enlist Barcelona producer John Talabot for a silky remix of Hot Chip's cover of "Atomic Bomb," one of the many gems from 1970s Nigerian synth-funk mystery man William Onyeabor. Talabot's remix, which will be released as a 12" on April 18 for Record Store Day, adds a pulsing synthesizer melody and lofty beat underneath Hot Chip frontman Alexis Taylor's vocal lines. As Luaka Bop explains in a press statement, Nigerian bootleggers Abaeze and Abayomrunkoje reworked a pirated William Onyeabor album cover for the artwork, creating this "bootleg of a bootleg" above. For more, revisit Luaka Bop's collection of William Onyeabor's complete 1978-1985 discography, watch a recently unearthed video for Onyeabor's "Many Mansions" and download Alexis Taylor's Africa In Your Earbuds mixtape.
