Boomkat Product Review:
The first fruits of the Owiny Sigoma Band, backed with a Theo Parrish remix! The project has been in gestation for a few years now, soon to be fully unleashed on Gille Peterson's Brownswood label. Motor City legend, Theo Parrish gives them a fine head start with his typically hypnotic and extended rework. Crafted during a whirlwind stop at Floating Points' Eglo studio in London, he reduces the original to shaking essentials and more emphasis placed on the sultry bassline and layers of entwining polyrhythms. The original is much more melodic, a sweet adjunct to the kind of Afrobeat-influenced pop of Vampire Weekend et al.
