Black Ants Remixes

by Kasai Allstars



KASAI ALLSTARS - Black Ants Remixes EP
Following the acclaimed release of Black Ants Always Fly Together, One Bangle Makes No Sound, the fourth album by the legendary Congolese collective, six diverse and equally exciting artists have revisited tracks from the LP:

Leading experimental US pop band Deerhoof (who collaborated with Kasai Allstars in the Congotronics vs Rockers live project) offer an eerie, almost psychedelic reading of Olooh.
Italy’s Afro-electro producer Khalab is known for his work with Baba Sisso- ko, the M’Berra Ensemble, as well as his striking Black Noise 2084 album. He’s created a mesmerising rework of The Large Bird, the Woman and the Baby

French producer Martin Meissonnier’s contribution is a cheerful remix of Unity Is Strength. Martin’s remixes of archival Congolese tracks was featured in the Kinshasa 1978 album (released on Crammed in 2019), and his production skills have graced many albums in the past few decades (he’s worked with Fela Kuti, King Sunny Adé, Seun Kuti, Haruomi Hosono, Khaled & more).

Imaginative Lagos/London artist & producer Ekiti Sound (whose second album is due out on Crammed next year) came up with a nice clubby take on Kasai Munene, which already garnered some good DJ support.

Spooky-J and pq are the two members of the formidable Anglo-Ugandan Nihiloxica collective, and are also electronic music producers in their own right. Spooky-J offers a driving, bouncing take on Bird Woman Baby, while pq pulls out all the stops for his wild, edgy “Trip Mix” reconstruction of The Goat’s Voice.

The EP is rounded off by a previously-unreleased, sweet and semi-acoustic original track, Ngoma Yande, written and re- corded by the band during the Black Ants sessions.
