WORLD EXCLUDING USA. 12” SINGLE IN ILUSTRATED PICTURE SLEEVE Tracklist: A1 OGÚN MEYI MEYI (IG Culture remix) A2 EGREM BATA JAM (Hello Skinny remix) B1 ALINA’S CALYPSO (Ron Trent remix) B2 ALINA’S CALYPSO (Sound Species remix) Release Info: Manana presents a new remix EP bringing together some essential re-works of Sound Species and Ache Meyi’s collaboration recordings. Originally recorded in 2016 in Santiago de Cuba during the lead-up to the Manana Festival in the city, the original sessions were an inspired fusion of Ache Meyi’s deep folkloric Afro-Cuban styles with Sound Species’ subtle electronic touches. The new re-works have attracted some familiar names from clubland: broken beat don IG Culture keeps the roots of ‘Ogún Meyi Meyi’ intact with a bass-heavy, percussive attack; brilliant UK drummer and producer Tom Skinner strips back ‘Egrem Bata Jam’ on a pulsing new version; Chicago legend Ron Trent creates a more melodic dancefloor re-work of ‘Alina’s Calypso’ while Sound Species themselves beef up the original Afro-Haitian rhythms of the same track for a dubbier treatment. ‘Sound Species / Ache Meyi Remix EP’ is released on 16th November on 12” single. KEY POINTS: - New remix EP of Manana’s Sound Species / Ache Meyi Cuban collaboration - Includes new versions by IG Culture, Ron Trent and Hello Skinny - Continues Manana’s unique journey through the music of Santiago de Cuba - Packaged in fully artworked outer sleeve - Manana now hosting monthly London club night at Pickle Factory, Bethnal Green
