It's a very slow builder, so don't crank your volume. Flutes come in on top of a mid-range drone and as things get louder the track shifts from what sounds very clean and digital to much more distorted textures. Harmonically it's still pretty, not to mention the occasional bird chirps...
A collab between French dance producers and Malian musicians playing traditional instruments could've gone so badly. Luckily this track is a great mix and works well. Listen and download courtesy XLR8R.
Propulsive (but well-spaced) electronic rhythms and an equally charged-sounding stringed instrument (I think it's a kora?) twanging away. The beats aren't generic doof but it's not all sappy and niced up either.
Chipper electronic funk with vocal samples from some part of Africa. Pitchfork has the goods.
Syncopated drum machines, plenty of hand claps and cheery bass guitar form the guts of this mix. Singing, chanting, electric guitar and all kinds of keyboard sounds keep things on the move. As with most Bullion tracks, nothing sits still for long.
