After the imminent success of their latest release, ‘Dingane’ on Anjunadeep, which featured prized remixes by international heavyweight, Powel, as well as South African Deep House leader, Fka Mash, well established African electronic band, Bantwanas are back with another mesmerising release on their very own Bantwanas Kollektiv imprint, ‘Backside’, that features a massive remix by none other than German maestro, Younion owner and Keinemusik artist, Re.You.
Starting things off, the band selectively assembled the instrumentation of the song around their heritage in the African landscape with a finesse that they’ve become known for. Brooding synth lines, well-articulated guitar rhythms and brilliantly arranged vernacular vocals flow throughout the track that is backed up by an energetic and dance-inducing percussive rhythm. Playing with the tension and release of the harmonics like only they can do, the band follow up their past success with grace and lead things forward with a true winner in their catalogue.
Deep, scintillating bass and haunting use of the original vernacular vocals signify the sound of Re.You‘s extravagant, yet simultaneously understated remix of ‘Backside’. A late-night dance floor bomb is definitely a phrase coined with a track like this in mind. Tight drum rhythms, syncopated percussion and a catchy melody bring the remix all together, closing the release off with a tantalising taste of Re.You‘s signature sound helped captivate his listeners from the very beginning.
