Boomkat Product Review:
Siaya County, Kenya meets the German underground on this killer grip of Ogoya Nengo And The Dodo Women's Group revisions from Lena Willikens, Tolouse Low Trax, Don’t DJ and more.
Sven Kacirek and Stefan Schneider’s TAL label returns for a second release that revisits last year’s wonderful On Mande album of Luo standards from Kenyan ensemble Ogoya Nengo And The Dodo Women’s Group. On Mande Versions is a decidedly Düsseldorf affair with Salon Des Amateurs regulars Lena Willikens, Tolouse Low Trax and Don’t DJ all involved alongside Version boss Orson.
The Orutu Run Version from Willikens is an ambitious undertaking, pilfering sound samples from various songs on the album to deliver a cacophony of serotonin-rushing percussive textures. By contrast, Detlef Weinrich opt for a typically less is more approach with his Tolouse Low Trax reduction of Mix Zwei, and Don’t DJ’s Sorbe Pekingese remix employs some of the intricate sonic trickery he used as part of Durian Brothers.To close Orson further embellishes on the spacious vibes explored by Weinrich, twisting some Ohangla drum patterns into a taut, fizzing stepper on Bunde Dub.
