Anjunadeep warmly welcomes DJ Koze for his Anjunadeep debut with his remix of Lakou Mizik & Joseph Ray’s ’Sanba Yo Pran Pale’.
A pioneer of electronic music and one of the scene’s most respected tastemakers, DJ Koze has released on Kompakt, Get Physical, Yo Mama, and his own reputable imprint, Pampa Records. His album ‘Knock Knock’ came 3rd on Pitchfork’s best albums of 2018, whilst his single ‘Pick Up’ was name by Resident Advisor and MIXMAG as the best track of that same year. He has remixed the likes of The Gorillaz, Mount Kimbie, Caribou, Moderat, Apparat, and Underworld, and headlined festivals and clubs around the world.
A celebrated remixer, DJ Koze is known for his eclectic and refreshing musical approach. His take on ’Sanba Yo Pran Pale’ is no different. DJ Koze reimagines the traditional Vodou song as a summer dance anthem, warping and stretching the original vocals from Lakou Mizik’s Sanba Zao onto a bed of catchy rhythmic synths and warm enveloping bass. Ten minutes long, the original mix has a nostalgic analogue warmth that feels perfect for an Indian summer’s day. To celebrate the release, Anjunadeep is pressing a limited run of white label vinyl, which are available for pre-order now.
’Sanba Yo Pran Pale’ is the first track off Lakou Mizik & Joseph Ray’s album ‘Leave the Bones’, and is a traditional Haitian song steeped in vodou tradition: "The Sanbas are the poets and keepers of Haitian history and culture. They pass on their wisdom through song and story. ‘Sanba Yo Pran Pale’ is an invitation to the Sanbas to speak their truth whilst paying respect to the vodou ‘Lwa’ or spirits."
‘Leave the Bones’ has accrued 1M streams on Spotify and Apple Music, and has garnered a wealth of global support from the tastemakers such as BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, NPR, The Times, Billboard, Crack Magazine, Mixmag, Songlines, The New York Times, and Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide FM. It is out now, available digitally and as a 2xLP.
