Wormfood are proud to present a full EP of remixes of the Abobo Nation Part EP by UK afro electronic pioneers Afriquoi.

We’ve drawn on a wide range of the freshest names in the emerging afro electronic scene, including The Busy Twist (Soundway), LV (Keysound/Brownswood/Hyperdub), Octa Push (Soul Jazz/ Steakhouse/ Enchufada), Wonky Logic (Boom Better) and Ranga.

1. The EP opens with UK afro bass wonderkids The Busy Twist and their full power treatment of Carnabala. Already something of a dancefloor classic + with strong support from Radio 1 Xtra’s Mistajam, they’ve made it bassier, heavier, and even more danceable, with new vocals from Zongo Abongo straight out of Ghana, adding to the original vocals from K.O.G. Zongo Central!

2. Fresh from releasing their incredible Lingua album, Portugese duo Octa Push bring their own Lusocentric take on bashment, grime, kaduro + UK funky known as ‘afro tuga’ – giving a catchy, rolling new treatment to the vocals of Nigerian Adedeji Adetayo.

3. Liverpool’s Ranga’s take on To Na Musu is a deep, explorative meditation on afro house reminiscent of the best of Boddhi Satva and Henrik Schwartz, bringing the kora more to the forefront and adding some spoken word from Afriquoi kora player + vocalist Jally Kebba Susso, explaining that the song is a tribute to the women of the world. What a smoothy….

4. South London’s LV need no introduction to any fans of forward thinking afro dance music, holding the space since 2007 with a host of amazing releases including the seminal ‘Boomslang’ with South Africa’s Okmalumkoolkat, their Routes album on Keysound with Joshua Idehen, Sebenza album on Hyperdub and their collaborations with Spoek Mathambo and latest album on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood. Here they bring a shuffly, uptempo and slightly menacing treatment to the uplifting vocals of Kenya’s Maia von Lekow. Get it on loud!

5. Finishing off the EP is a low slung, brooding treatment of TOYK, adding original thumb piano, crushing synths and wonky, staggering beats to Jago’s rowdy dancehall vocals, showing why he is fast developing a name for himself as one of the most exciting artist in the burgeoning global leftfield hiphop scene.
