M.I.A. “official” remix with Akon + R. City

Post Author:



Another one of those we remixed it because we could moments? Or because an American rapper might add some extra cred where it aint already? Not likely, with Akon and R. City indulging in croony Christmas-in-Senegal harmonies and the re-mangling tweaks and cuts tilting the whole mix a bit heavier along the the “world” axis. That's sort of where she's at anyway, touting local acts like African Boy, and where she's always been, with her bali-reggae-grime-whatever pounded out in bite-sized club-ready bumps.

Kala is out now.
