Boomkat Product Review:
Blue-haired South African "future ghetto punk" Moonchild Sanelly gets cuts from her latest album reworked by Grove, DJ Lag and Mor Elian on this tidy triple-header.
Released this summer, Sanelly's second album "Phases" found her refining her genre-blurring style, and this set of remixes only pushes her boundaries out even further. Durban superstar DJ Lag's remix of 'Soyenza' is an immediate highlight, balancing Sanelly's Xhosa lyrics against rolling sub bass and skeletal post-gqom chants - like Phelimuncasi's brilliant "Ama Gogela", it shuttles the genre into drastic new places.
Mor Elian's skittery rework of Trillary Banks-starrer 'Cute' is also worth a peek, following up on the producer's recent run of bass-heavy knuckle crackers and hitting the mid-tempo wobble right in the gut.
