Orchestre Poly Rythmo De Cotonou – Djanfa Magni (Bosq’s Afro Disco Mix)
We couldn’t be more excited about the sixth release on Sol Power Sound. And on the eve of that release, here’s another taste of the funkiness that awaits wise music connoisseurs who cop the EP tomorrow.
“Djanfa Magni” is a nice compliment to “Hwe Towe Hun”. Where the latter starts with more polyrhythms and is then enveloped in swirling keys, the former is a higher tempo more straight ahead afrobeat stomper.
From the Bolting Bits premier:
Orchestre Poly Rythmo de Cotonou formed back in 1966 in Benin and released hundreds of songs in the decades that followed. The band has recently re-formed and started touring again, also releasing an album back in 2011. Bosq cites them as a major influence on his work to date and wanted to be respectful to the original material when working on his edits. Our premiere today comes courtesy of the B1 on the record. Taking Orchestre Poly Rythmo de Cotonou’s track ‘Djanfa Magni‘, Bosq introduces a beefier low end while lightly re-arranging parts of the original cut and adding some extra percussion. These DJ friendly edits are sure to heat up plenty of summer’s end parties so don’t sleep and get your pre-orders in.
Bosq Meets Poly Rythmo Uptown arrives at fine vinyl retailers September 22. Juno already got ’em.
