Owiny Sigoma Band // I Made You / You Made Me // Out Now
October 19, 2015
After showing you the video for the new single from their third full length, ‘Nyanza’, we’re pleased to announce that you can now buy latest single from the Owiny Sigoma Band.
‘I Made You / You Made Me’ is a track inspired by the birth of Jesse’s daughter. Stirred by hearing “purely happy” African popular music on the radio, and taking early morning walks with gospel emanating from the churches, Jesse challenged himself to write a joyous pop song. This track beautifully reflects the ambience and energy of the environments in which it was made, and as well as Owiny Sigoma Band’s organic collaborative process.
It comes backed with a remix by mysterious psychedelic French producer High Wolf, who brings a unique take to the track. High Wolf is a friend of Jesse Hackett from both having released on Leaving Records, an imprint of Stones Throw that focuses mostly on cassette releases from the likes of Laraaji, Mndsgn and Ras G. The remix bears the hallmarks of High Wolf’s trippy production aesthetic; working seamlessly with looped samples from the original track on a beat machine, he conjures up a glitchy and catchy rework, and weaving in different ideas while still retaining some of Jesse’s intended joyous feel.
