Tickets are in hand for the Fela! broadway show on Saturday in London and so the discovery of this Fela Kuti remix/edit could not have fallen at a better time.
Fela Kuti is an absolute legend and his creation of Afrobeat lives on in so many music forms today.
Joystick Jay’s rearranged the structure, added drums, percussion, subtle bass and some rhodes chords.
There was a hunger for more Joystick Jay after this so we’ve also got his July mix. Thought we could barely recognise any of the artists in the mix, it’s a classic old school disco treat with Afrobeat elements throughout.
