Music in Exile presents the third instalment from the Music in Exile REMIXED series
Music in Exile are very proud to present a series of brand new, late night dance-floor fillers that will see artists collaborate across genres and across cultures.
Expertly pairing Gordon's vocal performance to a hypnotic house rhythm, Andras' "South Sudan" now finds new meaning and audience within the electronic music genre. Immediately developing a collaborative working relationship, today's re-imagination showcases the sweet spot where the pairs' distinct musical styles can co-exist and create their own unique sound.
Andras on the remix: "Gordon’s voice carried me through this remix project. My remix is the same track with some empty space in it, an extended breakdown, and… yes…. I made the bass drum louder. I also popped Gordon’s accapella over a ‘Bubblegum’ style backing track. But feeling there was a great likelihood i’d garbled the lyrics (given I don’t speak Neur or Arabic) I promptly deleted all the session files and suggested leaving the original intention intact (see above). But with Gordon’s blessing, here’s that dodgy tape remix, a kind of sonorous justice, given the poor quality digitised tapes through which I got much of my African musical education. I thank Gordon for his willingness to share the fuzz."
