The famous EDM producer Avicii got into an artistic musical tangle with one of South Africa’s biggest electronic music producer in the last decade. A masterful at afro-house and 2/4 sounds, Black Coffee crafts soul and the African traditions through a futuristic conduit.
Black Coffee reinterprets “Lay Me Down” back grounding the abundance of clichés found in the original. Despite your expectancy, the remix is not as soapy as some might suppose. The nature of Africa overcomes dubbed percussion as trampling bass cords tighten the original vocals. The track embodies Africa’s life and the pattern of rituals, all of which we can discover within ourselves.
We can all find a piece of our ancestry within the track.
