Yukimwi (Blludd Relations remix) - (3:40) Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.89
Review: Welcome to Brownswood Airlines. Destination: Nairobi via London. Your pilots will be the Owiny Sigoma Band, a crew who anyone with a passion for contemporary Afrobeat will be more than familiar with. "Yukimwi" explores traditional Kenyan folk formula by way of rich heartfelt chants and a sturdy, floor pounding beat. For added fusion Bludd Relations activate the cosmic switch with lush synth flourishes and twinkling highlife guitar shimmers. Stunning on both sides. Have a good flight.

Review: Nigeria's Owiny Sigoma Band have come through over the years thanks to Gilles Peterson's Brownswood label, and you really gotta give it to these guys - they know how to rock up the place with their country's rich funk and dance heritage. "(Nairobi) Too Hot" is a little stroke of genius amid our charts, a drum-centric groove that flows to perfection thanks to the help of the band's cautious vocal injections, and although this sounds vintage on the whole, there's plenty of fresh and contemporary sounds in there. DJ Khalab rewires the original into a house hybrid, a gnarly dance joint with a spiky bass and wicked Roland percussion bleeps.

Review: Nairobi's Owiny Sigoma Band have always been an intriguing proposition, offering as they do a thoroughly unique blend of traditional Kenyan rhythms, indigenous vocals and woozy, Western-influenced electronics. "Changaa Attack", their first outing on Brownswood for a year, continues this trend, doffing a cap to Bureka Son Sistema style cross-cultural fusion whilst retaining their usual Kenyan sounds and loose, laidback dancefloor demeanour. While the deeper remix from The Invisible - complete with sparkling piano flourishes - is rather tasty, it's the heavier, tropical-influenced dancefloor take from Glasgow's General Ludd that really impresses. Bonus cut Luo Land, a suitably frenetic, high tempo workout, is also rather good.
