Grupo Batuque - Afro Black (Tony Allen Remixes) [2006]


1. Afro Black (Tony Allen Remix Vocal)
2. Afro Black (Tony Allen Remix Instrumental)
3. Afro Black (LP Mix)

Tony has turned the track into a true heavy hitter, adding insatiable thumping afro beat drums and clave to give the track a percussive vibe from Lagos instead of Rio!

True Cariocas needn’t worry though as the flipside has the storming album mix with shuffling Brazilian percussion, jubilant rising horns, and a bending bass line plus two exclusive groove edits.

Tony lept at the chance to do the remix, recorded in London, to give Far Out another classic Grupo Batuque remix 12” following on from the seminal remixes that the likes of Kenny Dope, Big Bang, Osunlade and 4hero have previously done.

‘Afro Black’ is the first 12” single to come from Grupo Batuque's album ‘O Tempo Do Samba’ (Time of the Samba). The album features 10 new Grupo Batuque tracks plus 8 edit sections and features an all star cast inc. Ivan from Azymuth, Fabiola, Piralitu & Cidinhio Moreira plus many more. The album also features super dope cover art from original graf artist Mode2.
