What do you get when you cross Tinariwen with Four Tet, one of the most successful bands to come out of Africa, with one of the most acclaimed electronic producers at the moment? You just assume it’s going to be great. It doesn’t disappoint. Drifting in on some drums and chanting, the remix adds in layers of bass and metronome clicking, adding in a main chant. It’s pretty standard remix stuff, but it is really exciting; a dance track like no other. The original song features Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone from TV On The Radio. ‘Tenere Taqqim Tossam’ is taken from Tinariwen’s latest album Tassili. Listen to both versions of the song below.
